Cystic acne is the most serious form of acne due to its development from cysts deep below the skin’s pores. It can happen on the face, chest, back shoulders and upper arms, and is caused by many things including hormonal changes, greasy cosmetics, humidity, swelling, and chemicals. It is painful, can cause long lasting scars both physically and emotionally, and is most prevalent among teens and young adults.
