Neither mandelic acid nor green cream is an appropriate treatment for cystic acne. Both are effective against comedonal acne (clogged pores) and mild inflammatory acne.

Sounds to me like you need to see the dermatologist.

Which level of GC and which concentration of mandelic serum are you using?

Also, what's your regimen for using them together?

I'm using level 6 GC and 15%Mandelic Acid. The Mandelic Acid every morning and GC every nite and my face is just more oily.
