I wanted to write this b4 but thought people would think I'm nutz but one of the above posts mentioned it so here goes. I'm 38 and am at the tail end of the worst bout ever. At it's height I had approx. 3 huge cysts between my eyes (my right eye actually was partially shut), about 7 cysts on chin and jawline, and I can't count the whiteheads around my mouth and just at my lips (those lip ones are VERY painful). I've tried the retin-A and birth con. (refused Accutane no matter what) in the past but this is what helped me the most....in the a.m. shower I lather my chin and forehead with Denorex (like Nizorel) shampoo/ cond. and let it sit until I can't take it anymore. Then Biore toner. At night a good wash with Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash, more toner, and then a thin coat of Clean N Clear Persa-Gel 5 over whitehead areas and I pile it on the cysts. For the swelling of cysts I add a bit of cortisone cream during the day. But I didn't start to see a BIG difference until I soaked with the Denorex...maybe the coal tar kills the bacteria or whatever...but it's been one week and what a difference! Today I actually look like me again.
