The lesions of PF consist of erythematous macules and papules that progress to pustules and eventually to crusts.
With PF, pustules are often larger than pyoderma pustules, and while the latter are usually centered over a hair follicle (folliculitis), PF pustules may or may not be centered over a hair and can span several hair follicles.
PF pustules are often surrounded by an erythematous halo, and may coalesce producing target or serpiginous lesions.

On this scale, primary considerations were for the amount of leaf tissue killed and the extent of pustule coverage especially on the upper leaves of the plant.

In acne, the chemical composition of sebum may be altered by the action of the bacterium Corynebacterium acnes, a normal resident of the pilosebaceous ducts.
The changed sebum, a potent skin irritant, escapes into the surrounding dermis (the deeper layers of the skin), causing papules (hard pimples) or pustules (pus-containing pimples).
In severe cases nodules and cysts occur, and the skin may be permanently scarred.

 Wheat Leaf Rust
These spore masses, called pustules or uredinia, are first detected on wheat in North Dakota in late May or early June, generally in the southern-most counties.
Normally, only a few pustules are visible on susceptible varieties in early June because spore numbers are still low.
Susceptible varieties do not have the ability to retard fungal growth; the fungus grows extensively and produces relatively large pustules that may produce about 1,000 spores daily, each one of which is capable of reinfecting wheat (Figure 1).
