ok so in the past year, I have been getting 3 of these bigger zits, under the skin and painful. they are not HUGE, but they're bigger than the average zit. I would describe them as the size of a pencil eraser. However, it seems that the second one I've gotten has shrunk in about a week... and the first one went away after a long time but caused no scarring and has never resurfaced (from about 4 months ago). I was praying that I'm not having cysts at all, but rather big inflamed normal zits. Also my parents have no memory of having any cystic acne and have no scars, cuz I heard cysts are hereditary.

Cysta are not necessarily hereditary..from what you described i think it is not a cyst. It is a tad small to be called a cyst. But that's just my opinion. If you think that is big you must be lucky..

no. this particular one is actually going down. and im glad... im relieved that im not getting cystic acne, because it would make it much more difficult to cure. And that is big compared to the rest of the zits I have gotten. It seems that Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid is curing the rest of my zits well.
