How To Get Rid of Cystic Acne?

Effects

This type of cystic breakout causes damage to healthy skin tissues. Because of this, these breakouts often result in scarring of the skin. Touching and picking at cystic acne should be avoided at all times, as it will only make the situation worse. You may contribute to the scarring that you are trying to avoid and often spread the bacteria or infection.

Psychologically, cystic acne can also make you shy away from social situations. This is the most difficult impact of it to live with. You may find yourself limiting your lifestyle just because you are not happy with your appearance. This is obviously not the best option, and you should always be looking to improve your lifestyle sooner rather than later. Tempus fugit.

Treating Cystic Acne

Treatment can help to decrease the immediate symptoms and the damage that your skin experiences in the form of scarring. For this type of acne, prescribed medications are often necessary. The first attempt at treatment is not always successful, but with subsequent attempts, progress can often be made. Accutane is generally the treatment of choice offered by most medical practitioners for cystic acne, but as you probably already know there are numerous possible side-effects to consider.

Personally, I am a firm believer that a healthy, properly functioning body can deal with almost any ailment. If you achieve and maintain a healthy pH balance (6.5 – 7 pH) then you will find that the majority of sicknesses disappear or can be prevented. If you are interested in avoiding serious medications to treat your cystic acne I suggest switching to a raw vegetable diet for at least a month and trying to keep active with some regular, intensive exercise. Of course, despite its frequent success and the definite improvement, you will see there is always the off-chance this won’t eliminate your cystic acne completely, but if nothing else then you will at least feel a lot better, both physically and mentally.

Some other possible treatments include oral antibiotics, surgical intervention or drainage, intralesional corticosteroid injections, and sometimes oral contraceptives for female patients. These treatments may or may not be effective on their own, or they may need to be combined to fully combat your cystic acne.
