Our expert says:
If you have cystic acne you should try to see dermatologist - there are various options one can try. We usually start with topical antibiotic lotions and benzoyl peroxide, moving on to oral antibiotics (tetracyclines or erythromycin), then one can add hormonal treatment like Diane, and as last resort one can use Roaccutane for 3 - 6 months. Roaccutane does have side effects but it is very effective if taken with the right supervision.
