Re: lumps & scabs & scars.
They are the less common and more severe type of acne... although being on this board, you'd think that everyone has it. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">
-birthcontrol pills... (tho im a guy so you'll have to get more info from other people) I have heard however that BCP sometimes cause more problems than it fixes.
In a nutshell, you cant treat cysts with topicals because they are too deep into the skin. Thats the reason why all your remedies didnt work.
Get it treated quickly. They are the type of acne that most frequently leads to indented scars.
Good luck <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
