:bouncing: Hi! I wondered if anyone knows what medication or product will stop or reduce cystic acne? I have had acne since I was 15 and the majority are the deep, painful acne, that lasts for weeks (several have caused big scars). Even if/when I get a whitehead and can pop it, there are several more inflamed pores bellow that I can feel but can't get. My skin then peals and scabs. I have oily skin sometimes, but dry and flakey skin othertimes (like season changes, overuse of a product...).

I have tried most every over-the-counter products, proactive and am now on Nature's Cure. Nature's Cure has greatly reduced the amount and frequency, but I still get acne several times a month.

I am 23 years old and am getting married in May, and figure that I will have several "cysts" for my pictures :( (isn't that always the way- you get the biggest breakout at a time you want to look perfect?). Does anyone have ideas on what will help?

Try squeezing a lemon into your water. It works great. And I've started eating oranges again, one a day (despite the things I've heard about it messing up your complexion) but really I haven't noticed a difference. Don't drink soda. I squeeze 1/2 a lemon into every glass of water I drink and it works well, the only problem I have are the scars. I used to use Neosporin for my cystic acne but I found after I stopped using it that my cystic acne actually disappeared quicker than when I had used Neosporin. It did help a little with the scarring but for the most part it did more harm.
