two BIG puss filled things on chest!

Hello all!

I have a question for you!

Ive had acne for many years, on oxytetra... which is keeping it under control... however.....

In the past couple of weeks, ive had a couple (maybe more) of what appear to be quite large puss filled "zits" on my chest, but - they seem much larger than typical acne zits, they start as spots, then grow, and become kinda white & puss filled, and then burst!

One seems relatively "randomly" placed, the other seems to be at a hair follicle root, and another, again - random. it doesn't look like the pictures of "folliculitis" ive seen on the web.

Tell me.... can acne cause these LARGE pus filled zits too??? (as well as the usual small ones?)

Sounds like it's cystic acne. I tend to get them when I don't have enough sleep, I'm too stressed, or hormone changes.
