anyone used msm cream? results from retin-a?

has anyone used proactive on their cystic acne? Has it helped? w/ scaring? Anyone tried msm cream(it has like 20% sulfur)?

Oh and I used retin a for 2months and it made my face break out in tons of cysts and pimples that never really healed and just left a bunch of scars. has that happend to anyone? I also have red scar like discoloration where ive never even had a cyst? so weird. I blame it all on the retin a.

Ahhhh i hate looking like this alllll the time. Its not that bad when its on and off and theres no scars, but man i cant wait til this is over.

Personally, I don't think topicals are the appropriate treatment for cystic acne ... MAYBE Tazorac plus an oral antibiotic plus another topical would do it ... Taz is the strongest topical retinoid.

But honestly, for a bad case of cysts, I think you should be seriously considering Accutane.
