    Accutane has its own issues. There's not much you can do about cystic acne. It's really deep so topical cleaning does very little. You can lower your dose and that will help. I tried piercing it thinking it was full of fluid. It just hurt and did little to give relief.

    Agree with SG tried piercing them and did nothing but made it worse.
    Tanning helps me with regular acne but didn't find anything to help with cystic.

    I get two on my chest, in the exact same spot every time. They never pop, or get a head, or anything. At full size they're like half a grape.... Hard as hell not to keep driving a needle in them, but the more i mess around, the longer they stay. Frustrating.

    Agreed, tanning helps me with normal shoulder acne too.

    Stop over-thinking, simplicity facilitate many things.
