Drewlizard,
This doesnt sound like cystic acne. Cystic acne is deep, under the skin, does not come to a head and does not pop.....and if you force it to the surface and pop it, it will not bleed and heal- it will get infected and infect other pores around it, thus causing more cysts.

What it sounds like is you have more chronic acne. If you are able to pop it and make it bleed- its on the surface- not deep enough to be a cyst....

You really need to see a dermatologist- and you HAVE to stop picking, or you will be scarred all over, for a very long time. Using the proper cleanser is fine- youre using a very gentle , non aggravating cleasner, but you also need a solution to wipe over your face to help reduce the bacteria- something prescription strength...you could also go the route which many of us have taken and take something by mouth= either antibiotics, or accutane, although I personally do not recommend accutane...

You can also do lasers to help remove the scars, and control the bacteria, but this is something that only a dermatologist or medical doctor specializing in facial processes can help you with...

Make an appointment with a dermatologist and see what he or she has to say...I really dont think you are describing cystic acne. Ive lived with it for 15 years, and its not at all like you describe...
