Cystic Acne

I've always had this problem but never this bad and it has attacked my face. I haven't changed my diet except for having switched to decaf coffee. Is there anything anything I can do for this it's sometimes painful and very unattractive.

Re: Cystic Acne

See a derm please, these honkers cause scarring and stay forever. I have had them stay for over a month. A derm will give you antibiotics and can do injections. When you get these honkers you should see a professional cystic, which I have had bad for over a year now and by the way always have one on my face is awful and the WORST kind of acne. If you can't afford to see a derm then go to aby skincare on the internet at [url][/url] they can offer some prescrption meds to you plus a program. Then if you want you can get antibiotcs online I know the dosages for every type out there for cystic acne for my dad is a doctor mom a pharmasist but it is best to see a doc. It is advisable to use an antibiotic for at least 3 months to about 9 months. Where as for me been on them for over a year and have had to switch. It is very advisable to treat you cystic acne asap for it will scar even if you don't pick, which DO NOT DO ON THESE LEISONS and last A LONG TIME. Also it is this type of acne that is often given accutane to attack which I am trying to avoid in all my might.
