Cysts should react to all stronger acne meds. If you took the antibiotics religiously and they didn't work I would go back to the Drs and they will try you on something else. Meanwhile a salicylic acid wash of some kind may help.

For this case, it looks like the cysts are inflamed. SA is a chemical exfoliant which would unplug whiteheads and blackheads etc. It's best to try something like benzoyl peroxide and cleansing daily while undergoing oral treatment by a medical professional.
I wouldn't suggest draining them unless absolutely dire, however it is not up to us.

Like the person above said, I would not drain them! That is a sure fire way to scarring, and the fluid could potentially infect the pores around them as well, so you'd jsut get new ones.

I would go talk to a doctor and see his/her's take on this situation. Also mention folliculitis, for it is commonly mistaken for acne, and many acne treatments won't work.

Maybe I DIDDNT follow the tyerclone medcine at the time fully .... But does that usually work for my situation ????
Many get despondent because it does take some time to see any sort of result, and we are talking at least 3 months of consistent use for a 6 month course.
Although I would prevent taking it for more than 6 months because tolerance can build up and interfere with your immune system.
By not taking it fully, I'm assuming that you had skipped a few days? Try not to make it a habit.

Basically its been 6 years since my last determologist visit! .... What is usually best cure if not tyroclone.
There isn't really a "best cure". It is all trial and error to find something that works for you. Go see what your dermatologist has to say, then post back here if you see any sort of improvement.
