Cystic Acne

What is Cystic Acne?

Cystic acne is the most serious of acne conditions as it can easily lead to scarring. Large, red, inflammed, and painful nodules form deep in the skin where the inflammatory response is so great that it breaks the wall of the pore and a membrane forms around it leading to a cyst.

Treatments

Twice-daily cleansing with an oil-free cleanser helps to remove excess oil and bacteria. Helpful ingredients include salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and antibiotics. In extreme cases physicians may prescribe an oral form of retinoid. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Cystic Acne

Acne is a common skin problem and one that can be disfiguring. It’s most common in adolescents and teens, but adults can get it too. In some cases, the bumps and papules that are so common with this skin problem become inflamed, leading to a diagnosis of cystic acne, the most serious form of the disease and the one that’s most likely to lead to scarring.

What Causes It?

As the name implies, people with cystic acne don’t just have blackheads and red bumps. They also develop cysts that can become quite large and painful and be felt as tender, swollen nodules on the surface of the skin. Needless to say, these tender inflamed nodules that fill with puss are uncomfortable and embarrassing from a cosmetic standpoint.
