  1. I can only second what everyone has said so far, and really stress to have patience because it is very much a process of trial and error to see what works for your skin.
  2. Here are a few things you can do: Apply tea tree oil directly to the cyst two or three times a day Apply apple cider vinegar to the cysts twice a day. Be careful if you have sensitive skin and dilute the ACV with a little water. Massage a few drops of castor oil directly on the cyst. Soak a cotton cloth in warm water and place it on the cysts for 10-15 minutes. Do this twice a day. Apply witch hazel to cysts 3-4 times a day. Don't do them all at once, though, or you wo
  3. Listen to your mother and everyone else who tells you to leave them alone. I know it's not easy to do, but that will help immensely. Have you gone to a dermatologist for any of this? That may also help.
  4. These are good ones to start with, you may have to try a few before you find the one that works best for you. Just don't try too many new products at once, you can either make it worse, or it will clear up and you won't kniw which one worked. CeraVe AM Moisturizer Paula’s Choice Skinceuticals C E Ferulic
  5. Eventually, something will just keep trying.
  6. Sometimes these red marks fade over time and sometimes they don't. Have you seen a dermatologist? That may help you. Just keep in mind that not everything works for everyone, so you'll have to continue trying new things until you find the winner. Sorry, it really is trial and error.
  7. Doing things like picking at your acne can damage the skin and cause scarring, so avoid doing that as much as possible. Some that become severely inflamed can also scar. If you have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), it can be treated. Sometimes it even goes away over time, just by keeping a strict skincare routine. Topical creams can help. Pitted or depressed scars are harder to treat. I suggest you see a dermatologist. It could be faster. If you have a good dermatologist, they'll
  8. Sorry, that happened to you. It's often hard to predict what will happen when you are trying something new. It may work just fine for someone else and not for you. It seems counterintuitive, but if your skin is well hydrated or just cleansed, it could have absorbed more of the problem ingredient than expected. You can try a hydrocortisone cream or a product such as Aquaphor or Vaseline to soothe your skin. Be gentle with your skin until the redness goes away. Hope this helps.
  9. Some of these things you may be doing, but I'd advice trying these steps first before you go for laster treatments. If they don't get rid of the issue completely, ask your dermatologist about lasers. First, don't pop or pick at any active acne breakouts, this can irritate the skin and push more bacteria into the wound. Also, avoid scrubbing these areas, since physical exfoliation is can cause unnecessary damage. Don't use cleansers that contain sulphates or have high pH levels. Higher pH le
  10. I agree, this could be hormonal, or it could be for some other reason. Definitely see a doctor or dermatologist at least for a diagnosis. Then you can come of with a strategy for treatment. Good luck, let us know how it goes.
  11. Usually an Nd:Yag pulsed laser is used to treat moles, tattoos, and other dark spots. Some can be removed in just one treatment session, others may take longer, your dermatologist can advise you.
  12. Your routine does look simple, so it could be the products. I would suggest eliminating/adding one type of product at a time so you can see what is working. When you experiment with too many variables at once, you don't really know which one is working. There may very well be a combo that works, but if you experiment haphazardly, you'll either get subpar results or may end up using more products than you really need.
  13. After lancing, it can take 1-2 weeks for the wound to heal. I'd give it a little time to resolve. Then check with the doctor or dermatologist who treated the cyst.
  14. Definitely, see a dermatologist about what is best for your skin.
