Thanks for the info It is well known that cystic acne can be treated and reduced by many over the counter products, conventional drugs, creams and topical treatments. The truth is that these products are not guaranteed to permanently cure your acne; in fact these treatments are designed just for battling the superficial symptoms and not the root cause of the disease. The pharmaceutical and drug companies main interest is to design a product that creates consumer dependency; this means more profit for them.
