I'm sorry you're having a flare-up. I had them occasionally even on Accutane, but I thought it might be hormonal (I'm a girl)/menstrually related. All I can recommend is that you try using a mixture of 10% over-the-counter Benzoyl peroxide mixed with hydrocortisone cream (also in the drugstore) on cysts. Unfortunately, I used that to deflate the cysts and bring them to a head---you seem to be having the opposite problem. Be warned--it would also make the skin pink there for a while (I preferred a red, flattened batch of skin to a fat zit). All I can recommend you do is use salicylic acid astringent to dry up the scabs/zits and wait to see your dermatologist.

Is it possible you're using a product that exacerbates your acne--aftershave or something?
