Doctor :   Products such as facial scrubs, astringents and masks generally aren't recommended because they tend to irritate skin, which can worsen acne. Excessive washing and scrubbing also can irritate skin. If you tend to develop acne around your hairline, shampoo your hair frequently.

User :   or any prevention to take care for these
Doctor :   You may want to avoid oily or greasy cosmetics, sunscreens, hair-styling products or acne concealers. Use products labeled "water-based" or "noncomedogenic."
Doctor :   For deep cysts, antibiotics may not be enough. Isotretinoin is a powerful medication available for scarring cystic acne or acne that doesn't respond to other treatments.
