Growing out of cystic acne...

Recommended Posts

My brother had bad acne that he grew out of, but I have it worse than he did with large 1 inch wide cysts all over the lower part of my face. I am 18 now, had it since I was 15. Its not going away at all, I stopped the regimen and broke out very bad, so Im back on it again. But how long until I grow out of this, or will I? I need to know when because if I have to wait years then I might as well try Accutane.

Should I gamble and see if I grow out of it, or just do Accutane?

take an ibuprofen in the morning....and one at night...for like 6 days.... u wont have cysts anymore

Reading your signature, you probably got rid of your acne by just avoiding dairy, gluten has a small part in it too. Ibuprofen might speed up the results, but won't help on it's own. I got rid of acne by cutting out dairy and anything that contains milk in it completely. I still eat gluten stuff though, but in moderation.

Well, I'm using topical ibuprofen, and it's working very, very well here, and others have found that too. Anti-inflammatories work very well for acne, particularly if you use an antibacterial with it.

I think topical ibuprofen is much better than the pills though- the effect is far more localised and you don't need as much total ibuprofen, so there's virtually no chance of side-effects.

But the pills should work too; and others have found that.
