My partner, who is nearly 43, has been suffering from cystic acne for over 10 years.
At present he has 3 large cysts on his face and head. In the past they have been on his arms.
He has seen skin specialists who have told him the only treatment is to cut the cysts out, which is what he has been getting done over the years.
Doctors have tried burning them off only for them to return weeks later.
They are large, do not look like "pimples" and they seem to have a core. They go crusty over time and do not go away.
My partner has Bipolar and this is making him quite depressed. To top it off we are getting married in 3 weeksa and he is devastated that he has these cysts on his face. Me, I could care less, I am marrying him "warts and all".
Does anyone else suffer from this or know anything that might help him?
