Yep, I'm right with you. I took antibiotics for 2+ years, but decided it was time to get off of them about 4 weeks ago. And my entire face hurts from these cysts. The topical antibiotic isn't helping at ALL.
I'm going to start back on the BC Pill in a couple of weeks, and I'm praying that it will help me.
I'm at the point where I hate going to get my hair cut, or go shopping for makeup & stuff - I feel like they are looking at me saying "ewwwww, look at her skin".
I think people don't get it... they think that people with acne are dirty or something. Really bums me out.
