Acne is stubborn skin condition which attacks almost everyone. It is very depressing and irritating as it affects the personality of its sufferer directly. Acne has different stages but we cannot divide it into properly because it is not necessary that acne attack in steps. Some people are effected by severe acne from the start while the lucky some get rid of the acne in the mild form without any treatment. Cystic acne is a severe form of acne and can also be refereed as last stage acne. It needs special attention and treatment as it does not respond very well to general acne medication.

Causes:
The exact causes of severe cystic acne are unknown. But most of the researches show that the main cause behind severe cystic acne is same as any form of acne i.e. Hormonal changes. Heredity is another cause of cystic acne. If one of your parent got this type of acne then there is possibility that you might get this acne as well. But it is not necessary that you would have to suffer with this acne if your parents have cystic acne. Hormones play an important role in skin conditions. Overactive sebaceous glands produce more sebum oil which cloggs the skin pores. P. acne bacteria which are already present on our skin get trapped in these clogged pores. When these trapped bacteria breed in these follicles and produce infection. When this infection grows more, it produces inflammation. Due to this inflammation skin becomes red and painful, which causes more infection. This forms cysts on the skin surface. Severe Cystic acne is deep rooted in the skin and thus causes severe damage even after its treated. Cystic acne is more common in teen years specially in boys.

Treatment:
Cystic acne is most painful form of acne, thats why it needs proper treatment. Any wrong step can worsen your skin condition. It is necessary to consult dermatologist during the course of the treatment. Many people don't get any positive response in starting of a Cystic acne treatment and they discontinue the treatment altogether. This is a particularly flawed practice as it might make the acne bacterias immune to the treatment without actually helping. Sometimes combination of different treatments are prescribed to treat this condition. As cystic acne is treated with aggressive treatments and many medicines have some severe or mild side effects it is important that you be in constant contact with your dermatoligist.

Severe cystic acne responds well to Accutane (Isotretinion). It is a very strong drug and widely used worldwide for treating cystic acne. Due to its side effects it is recommended under strict monitoring. Accutane works by controlling sebaceous glands and prevent more formation of bacteria. Its severe side effects include depression, suicidal thoughts and fetus birth defects in pregnant women.

The option that is both safe and effective are generally natural acne treatments. These treatments are being widely used throughout the world because they have no side effects although they may take longer then conventional treatment options to cure the cysts.
