Can You Get Rid of Cystic Acne Blemishes?

How To Get Instant Relief From a Cystic Acne Pimple

Anyone who has ever suffered from cystic acne knows how much it can hurt. Just lightly brushing your finger over a cystic acne blemish can bring on a bout of blinding pain. But, as everyone with cystic acne knows, popping these blemishes is nearly impossible and if one does manage to do it, a big ugly lesion appears and then a scar is almost always left behind. There are, however, ways to get immediate relief from cystic acne. If you want to know how, read on...

The Cystic Acne Nightmare

Cystic acne is probably one of the worst forms of acne to have. It might not always be as visible as other types of acne, but it is almost always more painful. That's why people who experience cystic acne are so desperate to find relief when the ugly cystic blemishes raise their heads.

Why Can't You Just Pop It?

When it comes to cystic acne, you should never try to pop the blemishes. Yes, I know they say that about all pimples, but it really is true with cystic acne.

Cystic acne forms deep beneath the skin, forming large nodules to appear. If you try to "pop" these nodules, it can make the infection go deeper into the skin rather than coming out of the skin. This can cause more infection and worsen your acne breakout.

Even if you do get the cystic acne blemish to "pop" rather than go deeper into the skin, it's not always a pretty sight. If you do manage to get the cyst to pop, it usually creates an ugly lesion, which then turns into an acne scar.

Instant Cystic Acne Relief

When you have cystic acne, it can really hurt. That's why so many people who suffer from it want to find ways to reduce the pain. Fortunately, there are methods of relief.

Zeno, while not technically created for cystic acne, has been proven to help relieve cystic acne pain. I myself have a Zeno unit and have used it on cystic acne blemishes. The pain relief was almost instant and the cyst itself disappeared in about 3 days. Since it usually takes over a week, the shortened duration was a welcome change.

If you don't like the idea of using a Zeno unit or if the Zeno doesn't work for you, talk to your dermatologist about intra-lesional corticosteroid therapy. This is an injection directly into the cystic acne that provides fast pain relief and clears the blemish up quickly.
