I have the same type of acne as you. But my doc told me that it wasn't bad enough that I should go on Accutane. Instead he put me on retin-a micro. He said micro will help with my cysts as well as my regular pimples. He also said the micro will help with my scarring. So far it has been a total of 4 1/2 weeks (I will be finishing week 5 on tuesday) and so far no improvement. I have been breaking out between weeks 3 till now but my acne is also healing much quicker. There has been 'slight' improvement in my scars, brown spots, red marks, etc... I don't know if I can recommend it to you until I'm at the end of week seven, which is approx 2 1/2 weeks from today. I was also put on minocycline but I got off of it since I hate antibiotics. Zinc will definately help and B5 will help if you have oily skin.
