Does this happen to you too?

Whenever I get a tiny and i mean tiny whitehead. It always turns into a hugeeee cyst (like 5mm wide). And then when it pops. It goes through this cycle of refilling itself with more white junk. A cyst typically takes 3 weeks to flatten. And once it goes away... i get triple the amount around the same area.

My IB three weeks into tane so far still isn't helping the situation. Any tips?

I don't have that type of problem, but I did only have 2-3 cysts when starting on accutane, and now, at current count 2 weeks in, I have 10 active cysts. (all on my forehead.) They take around a week for them to go down, and usually never in the same area (although relatively close to the same area.)

Actually if it pops and spits out "white stuff" it is a pustule, not a cyst. Cysts don't do that.
