Yes, and i'm at the end of week one. I haven't had a cyst for months, but just yesterday, I got one next to my nose, on my cheek. Surprisingly, the pus surfaced, and I was able to pop it.

Hang in there! Be sure you are using the full amount of benzoyl peroxide by this point in time (a full fat finger length).

Remember to be super gentle too. And if you need to, you can consider icing those cysts. It can help decrease the pain, redness, and swelling.

I hope you keep going at it with the regimen even though it's hard in the first few weeks. When I started, it went well, especially for the first couple of weeks, then I got that "sun burnt" skin you posted about. I thought it was getting better the next week, then I broke out like you and I was annnnngrrry! I honestly thought I was going to quit but I didn't (the only thing I did different was to use the full finger of BP at night, no more mornings). I'm glad to say I am in my ninth week and my face is fully clear, with only 2 spots on my chin, below my face where I feel like people don't really see (though my 2 yr old did point it out yesterday-kids are silly). The redness is also subsiding. I just wanted to encourage you to keep going at it. Make sure you moisturize as much as you need to and gently exfoliate every so often and I hope it will get better for you. Weeks 4,5, and 6 were the worst for me, so hang in there!

BTW lucky you only getting acne at 20. I've had mine since the fifth grade.

Try using an AHA or some other form of exfoliation. Maybe the cysts are from the dead skin build up on your face...

Just a thought.
