Nodular/cystic Acne Wont Go Away! Picture*

4 posts in this topic

My face has always been great as far as acne goes. Then, out of nowhere, this huge cyst/nodular acne became inflamed on my cheek. I initially thought it was just any other acne so I tried to squeeze it (bad idea!). That's when it quickly (overnight) inflamed to a huge red bump underneath my eye! I went to a derm and she gave me a cortisone shot after draining it. Now, what must be 8 weeks since this sucker appeared, it is still red (it is mostly flat now but some hardness can still be felt). The picture attached was taken a couple days ago.

This is what it looks like now. I texted this photo to my derm and she prescribed me Keflix/Cephaflixin (spelling is wrong).

Will this 10 day course of Keflix work? What is this thing beneath my eye? Is this even acne????

No offense, but what does that have to do with my question? Are you saying azithral is a better drug for what I have?
