How to know which type you have?

4 posts in this topic

You will have cysts.

If you don't know what they look like google cystic acne.

I've only had one in my entire life and it was small for a cyst but there usually pretty painful.

If you have to ask the question, then you dont have cystic acne. Its basicly acne thats under the skin that causes big resevoirs of puss.....lovely.

Not necessarily so. I remember I had a whopper of a cyst on my right cheek about 1962 when I was about fourteen years old. Back in the day (when acne was considered a "hygiene disease" and diet related) I remember putting gobs of the old flesh colored Clearasil (which is about all we had in the early 60's) on it to no avail. On the tube it clearly said "not for cystic acne"...we had no internet then and I lived out in the sticks and the public and school libraries didn't have a lot on the subject other than to avoid chocolate, french fries and in one book "self gratification (masturbation)...I asked my Mom and she said, no what I had certainly couldn't be a cyst, and that cystic acne was skin cancer. (Naturally, I still have the scar on my cheek some 45 years later)

The point here, is that we all have different levels of sophistication, education, and maturity. It was a fair question asked. Try not to be so judgemental...please. We are all in this together whether we have one cyst or thirty five cysts or no cysts and just pimples and comedomes. It was a fair question.
