I got rid of my cystic acne! This works!

Recommended Posts

After buying and trying EVERY product on the market for acne, I finally went to a dermatologist for the acne on my chin.

I am 39 yrs. old, and although I would on and off get pimples on my chin, I found that in the last several months, I would get these huge cysts under the skin -- all on my chin. Once one would finally go away, a new one would pop up. I was getting depressed.

The dermatologist prescribed cefradoxil 500mg tabs, twice a day, and Acanya antibacterial topical cream. I also wash my face at night with Aveeno Calming wash for Sensitive skin, and with Neutrogena Stress Free Acne scrub in the shower in the morning. I also use Obagi Therapeutic Moisturizer (this stuff is GREAT!) with the Acanya as it can be somewhat drying.

I also had the dermatologist inject a small amount of steroid into the cysts I already had on my chin -- but I think you HAVE TO ASK for that, or they won't do it.

I've done this regimen for a month -- I am totally acne free.

I hope this helps someone out there.
