Wow. I used to have pretty bad cysts but they were never like that. Never an inch or more in diameter. But I did used to be covered in them. And it turns out they were entirely caused by an allergy.

About 15 years ago I discovered (from a tip from a coworker) that oranges caused the cysts I got all along my jawline, hairline, temples, etc. And often enough on my cheeks to leave scars. I quit eating them and the worst of it went away, but I still always had at least one on my neck coming or going and a few on my back. Plus I had regular acne.

I was recently tested for common allergies and it turns out that I am mildly allergic to oranges. They didn't test for other citrus though. But I've found if I have too much of lemon/lime or other fruit juices I will get a cyst on my neck.

So you might try getting your allergies checked.
