Causes of cystic acne:

Cystic acne occurs when bacteria, dead skin cells, and sebum (the substance that makes your face feel oily) get trapped beneath the skin’s surface and become infected. This leads to a large, swollen cyst (bump) that can hurt just to touch.

The fastest way to get rid of cystic acne:

Cleanse the area: Wash the face with a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser to remove any makeup, oil, or dirt. 

Apply ice: Wrap an ice cube or cool pack in a cloth and apply to the pimple for 5–10 minutes. Take a 10 minute break and repeat. 

Apply a topical treatment: Use a product that contains 2% benzoyl peroxide.
