Thanks for writing to us.
The cystic acne are commonly seen due to hormonal disturbances in the body. The main treatment involves systemic antibiotics and retinoids. Both these are prescription only drugs. You need to consult a dermatologist for the same.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

You have not mentioned your age. But it seems that you had gone through you are not in acne prone adolescent age..I would advice consult nearest dermatologist to rule out harmonal imbalance and you may required Systemic Retinoid(Isotretinoin) along with topical traetment, but before that you may required routine test and lipid profile along with Vision aquity test. Please consult nearest dermatologist.
