Dan's regimen causing cysts?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, basically... i started doing dan's regimen, and I ended up getting three cysts. I've never gotten a cyst until now and I was wondering if anybody else has had this happen to them. Due to the harshness of the regimen, i might not have been gentle enough with my skin when washing/applying bp, which could have lead to the cysts. Anyways i stopped, and now i'm not getting any cysts, just regular acne. Any responses would be appreciated, thanks.

Mate I have had the same problem andn I figured out why. My skin was too dry and that caused the cysts on my cheeks. Previously I did not moisturise at night only apply BP and leave it then in the morning I would wake to a cyst on my cheek and I couldn't work out why it had happened. Then I finally realised it was because at night I do not moisturise, so about two weeks ago I started moisturising after the BP both morning and night and my skin has been 99% clear with no new cysts for two weeks and I am 99% sure the reason was because my skin was too dry and needed more moisturising.

Hope that helps you as it has helped me.

I think Beama may be right. I did develop a couple cysts under my cheek area during the regimen, and it could have been a combination of me squeezing my cheeks (irritating them) and maybe not applying moisturizer at night. Although, I can't remember exactly, because I thought I was applying moisturizer almost every night.

well guys if ur getting cysts and you just started the regimen, do not fear... i believe the bp is just bringing everything to surface. those cysts were probably developing for a while. I know because when i started the regimen i got 2 nasty, huge things right on my nose. its all just like an intial breakout. remember dont pop anything!! or try to. it might help if u put vinegar on them each night with a q tip, it will bring them to a head and then u can pop them safely.
