Cystic acne while on the regimen (?)

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm 19 years of age and have been battling acne since I was 10 years old. Yes, 10, I did not type that incorrectly. I've been using Panoxyl (a brand of BP in the Philippines) when I was in high school. I stopped when my skin started clearing (my bad) which made me breakout. I went back to Panoxyl but I started developing ugly cystic acne before my period.

I ordered Proactiv and have been using it for two years now. I still get huge pimples but with the help of Nivea night cream, cystic acne was under control. Suddenly, after 2 years of using Proactiv, my skin suddenly went berserk. And I MEAN UGLY BERSERK.

My skin started acting up with humongous cystic acne all over my jawline. I tried OCM, pearl creams and a kojic acid soap but nothing helped. So I tried Dan's regimen for a fit. I've been on the regimen since December 2, 2009 and I must say it worked wonders. I may have red and itchy skin but it felt good to have less pimples.

However, I started getting FOUR cystic acne on the left corner of my chin on the 23rd. They were snuggled up in the same spot and it really hurts when I talk. Is this freakin' normal? My self-esteem is getting depleted by the minute. HELP! :wacko:
