How to treat cystic back acne

+1

Cystic back acne is one of the toughest places to treat acne and one of the most affected areas by taking a course of Accutane. I would have no concerns prescribing it based on what you have said, but a true evaluation must be conducted in person by a trained dermatologist. Accutane for body acne though is extremely effective.
