i didnt think i had cystic acne but now i think i might after doing some research. ive looked at pictures and they look like what i have but im not sure. i get zits that are really deep and hard to the touch and they hurt and they also do not go away for a long time and when they finally do im left with a scar. so if i do have cystic acne is there anything besides accutane that i can do to get rid of it? because i am going to the derm soon and i want to know the best options. thanks!

Based off your description, yes you do have cystic acne. And I do believe that accutane is the only way to clear cystic acne.

Some things tho: if its really inflamed try icing it a couple times a day to reduce swelling

just a quick question, i know i could probably find the answer lurking around in the threads... but i too have cystic acne.. and i was just wondering if accutane is the only way to clear them.. i don't have serious acne... maybe like 2 or 3 cysts.. how does accutane work anyways? prevent the overproduction of oil?
