What is non-nodular acne?
In some cases of acne, a nodule will develop deep under the surface of the skin and may persist, developing into hard cysts. Non-nodular acne typically does not involve these deep cysts, but the more typical inflammatory acne lesions (papules and pustules) closer to the surface of the skin.
