four cysts in one night?

Hey everyone,

I`ve been using retin a for just over 2 months and haven`t had any new acne for about a week, all the read marks from my dreaded initial breakout are fading well enough.

I though it might finally be over, but I woke up yesterday morning with four 1 cm cysts, three on my chin and one beneath my eyebrow. I`m really distraught over them, I haven`t had cystic acne for a few years now and the retin a had lulled me into a false sense of security when I didn`t break out for a week.

Sorry for the ramble, I just wanted to know if anyone has experienced anything similar and what they did?

xoxo
