Dear customer

Thank you for coming back online.

Cystic acne is one of the most severe forms of acne.It is an actual infection of the sebaceous gland.

For cystic acne,the aim of treatment is to prevent new spots forming,to improve those already present, and to prevent scarring.
Following is recommended for you:

  • Apply ointment containing bezoyl peroxide like clearasil Max.It has antibacterial effects and can dry out the skin and encourage it to shed the surface layer of dead skin.It is available as over the counter without prescription.
  • Following may help:Mix equal parts baking soda and water to form a paste. Apply the paste onto acne individually, not over the entire face. Dip a Q-Tip into the baking soda mixture and apply that way.Wash the face after 10 minutes.
  • It is strongly recommended to avoid spicy foods to keep cystic acne in control.
  • Sugary and fried foods should be avoided as much as possible.
  • Include more of fruits & vegetables in diet.Drink plenty of water.

Your doctor may prescribed you medications like: short course of antibiotics,steroids,Isotretinoin,cyst drainage,hormonal pills accordingly.

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your doctor for these prescription medications accordingly to treat the cystic acne and heal & cure it fastly.All this will help him greatly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
