I am sorry you are having to go through this. My son had really severe acne growing up (all over) and also when he become an adult. We tried everything possible, including dermatologists and their “cures”; to no avail. The best things that we have found to work for him are the Nuetrogena products and also the SkinID products. The Nuetrogena products were doing a wonderful job; however, they just weren’t doing enough, so he switched to the SkinID and it has done wonders for him. While he was growing up, I got to the point where I didn’t think he would ever have clear skin and now he does. It really is amazing.

The one option we never did consider was laser treatment. It was brought up when he was younger, but I was deathly afraid of it, so it never happened. And now that he is grown, he doesn’t need it.

ooooh, i feel for you. i had cysts too – and finally after taking a ton of different antibiotics i went on the dreaded accutane. yes, it sucked (super dry skin, random muscle aches, monthly blood tests, etc) – BUT it was so so so so worth it for me! my skin is super clear now. no more cysts. so, if you decide to bite the bullet and go on accutane, know that it’s not as scary as most people say (at least for me it wasn’t!)

i have no experience with laser treatment but it sounds like something worth researching!

I get cysts, too.  I’ve started using Clean & Clear’s acne cleanser, though, and it’s done wonders.  My skin isn’t perfect now, but it’s so much better.  I’m not embarrassed to go outside without makeup.
