"How to treat cystic acne"

Cystic acne is one of the most difficult types of acne to treat. Though it is most likely caused by the same bacteria (p. acnes) as regular acne, cystic acne lesions are far more painful and have more risk of scarring compared to mild or moderate acne.

So suffering from cystic acne is not something that can be taken lightly. It’s a severe, debilitating condition that makes it painful to look in the mirror and sometimes impossible to enjoy life.

With the emotional impacts of cystic acne it’s easy to see why medications and treatments promising quick results are so popular, even at the expense of your health and skin
Cystic acne lesions actually rupture beneath the surface of the skin, pushing the blockage and swollen contents beyond the reach of traditional, topically-applied anti-acne products.

What Causes Cystic Acne?

  • The onset of puberty (when hormones go bonkers)
  • Pregnancy
  • Menstrual cycle
  • Perimenopause and menopause
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (a condition caused by a hormonal imbalance in a woman's ovaries)

How Can I Treat Cystic Acne ?

  • Keep your skin-care routine as simple as possible and follow it religiously.
  • Use a gentle, effective water soluble cleanser twice a day.
  • Exfoliate once or twice a day with a salicylic acid-based exfoliant
  • Apply benzoyl peroxide for killing the bacteria in the pore 
  • Avoid bar cleansers (the ingredients that keep bar soap in bar form can clog pores).
Retinoids - this drug classification action is to reduce the worsening of the skin condition. These can be in topical forms but other oral forms are said to be much more effective for this skin condition. The drugs for this class would include isotretinoin, tretinoin topical, adapalene, and tazarotene.
Antibiotics - topical forms are also pharmaceutically prepared for this condition and other are systemic antibiotics.
