What OTC Medication is out there for cystic acne?
My boyfriend refuses to see a dermatologist (mainly because a: he hates doctors and b: we don't have the money). I'd really like to know any home remedies or OTC things that would help or get rid of his acne.
By acne I mean, hard pimples beneath the surface, they are impossible to 'pop' and rarely go away and lots of large bumpy skin colored patches of blemishes, as well.

Since dermatologist is not an option,intensive skincare regime is the best when it comes to cystic acne.Cystic acne result from sensitive skin, so use a treatment product and include in ur skincare regime.Cleanse,tone and moisturize twice a day to regulate ur sebaceous glands and to withdraw any impurities,use a purifying mask once a week.Plus,since u have sensitive skin,stay away from tea tree oil products and antiseptic products since this could make ur skin worse. When acne becomes scars,include a scar serum to improve skin complexion.Ur skin should improve soon.Good luck....
