I used it for a year and it didn't help me much either though some people love it. I don't think it will help with cystic type acne but it is worth trying. It will itch at first for about 25 minutes after applying until your skin adjusts to it. It didn't cause an initial breakout on me but everyone reacts differently.

I have used Azelex on and off for a year now. My doc prescribed this due to me trying to get pregnant and it supposed to be safe. I can't say it has helped because my acne is still bad, but I guess it could be worse.

I just tried it for the first time tonight and then i read it has an ingreedient in it that can clog pores. Why would they put an ingredient in an acne cream that will clog pores? So now im worried about continuing using it?????????? what the hell?????
