Recovering from cystic acne and left with red marks

Recommended Posts

I saw my dermatologist last month, and prescribed me antibiotics and RX hydrocortisone cream.

I am still left with redness and unevenness (above my lip). It does look much better, and I've been using hydrocortizone for over a month now (probably not supposed to use it this long).

What else should I try? Apple cider vinegar? I am thinking about bio oil but I don't want to spend that much money on it and wait for it in the mail. Can I buy organic apple cider vinegar from any store, or probably just organic food stores?

Also, will the unevenness and shallow scars fully heal over time? I had cystic acne for about two months, and it has been one month now since I haven't had it.

Please help.
