Help? Not Sure If It Is Cystic Acne?

4 posts in this topic

I've been used to acne for a while now, but suddenly in about 1-2 weeks, there is a big circle of acne on my left cheek! I'm not sure if it is cystic acne but it is kind of itchy. the outside few are scars but the ones in the middle are bumps. they don't feel sore at all.

The bumps in the middle do resemble cystic acne. I've had them before and usually the small ones aren't as painful as the ones that have a lot of pus filled in them. Sounds gross yes, but take care of those before they get any bigger/painful.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil

Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing LotionĀ + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil

Medication:

  • Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo
  • Meftormin 500mg

Supplements:
  • Vitamin D - 2000 I.U/day
  • Zinc - 50mg/day


And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

If it continues to itch it could be a bunch of things that are not technically acne. It could be a fungal condition. Because of the organization of the lesions, it could be a bacterial infection.
