What kind of acne is this?

I'm wondering if my acne sounds moderate or severe... hard for me to tell and I don't have the means to take pictures right now.

I have crystal-clear skin except for my cheeks, which are full of cysts and a few whiteheads that come and go. I never develop actual pimples--it's either the tiny whitehead bumps or large inflamed cysts. The cysts take a long time to heal, and I usually wake up in the morning with one or two new ones no matter WHAT topicals I use all over my face.

Does this sound severe enough to look into Accutane? Any advice on how to prevent the cysts from forming?
