What Is Cystic Acne?
If you have "large, red, and painful breakouts deep in your skin" chances are you have cystic acne. These are formed like usual pimples, where gunk gets trapped inside the pore.
But these often go deep in because they infect that area and are usually full of pus and can be extremely painful and unsightly. Unfortunately, if you pop any cystic acne, bacterial can spread into surrounding areas causes more pimples, as a result.
This may be critical to note, since it tends to linger for a long time on large areas of the skin, it can be damaging and leave behind permanent scars. Women who suffer from cystic acne often find that the infection flares up in the lower half of their face.
Causes of Cystic Acne
Besides family history, the exact cause of cystic acne is still unknown. Although hormones known as androgens may be a factor. They appear mostly in teenagers, which triggers clogged pores and acne changes in the skin.
Women may experience significant hormonal changes caused by menopause, menstrual cycles, or pregnancy.
Treatments Of Cystic Acne
Consult a dermatologist to come up with a treatment plan. The over-the-counter medicines are normally reserved for milder acne and that may not help those suffering with cystic acne.
More effective solutions may involve using oral antibiotics to lower inflammation and control bacteria, or birth-control pills for women to regulate hormones.
Alternatively, you can try prescription-strength creams, or gels with retinoid, to free up pores.
