I don't think you can grow out of cystic acne - you have to treat it. Also, from what i've heard and experienced, topicals are not a great first line of defense. It is suggested that cysts are diet related so you may want to cut out dairy and gluten to see if that is your issue. Citrus has also affected some people. If your acne follows a hormonal pattern then spiro or birth control may work. As a last resort, there is accutane. Don't give up hope. There are other things to try besides anti biotics. It may also be worth it to see a naturopath if you can afford and are overwhelmed by all the information.

Reading, writing, trying new things, finding my inner strength through this struggle.
Acne has broken me down but i am hopefully that one day things will get better.
