When you’re a teenager it’s normal to have acne breakouts on your face and back. But if you have large, red, and painful breakouts deep in your skin even once you get older, it could mean you’ve developed cystic acne. It is treatable and should not be ignored because cystic acne can linger for years and can leave permanent scars if not addressed. A dermatologist will identify the most suitable treatment for you but there are some natural remedies that can also help you calm down the onset of the condition.
Touching and trying to pop cystic acne is the worst thing to do. The cyst will become inflamed and infection will spread to surrounding tissues. It will also increase the chances of prominent scars after the cyst disappears. Cysts are typically too deep under the skin to be popped, so resist the temptation to try and don’t touch them.
