You should consult a dermatologist to help you treat your acne and prevent scarring.  Do not use any home remedies which can worsen your acne.

Cystic acne must be addressed differently than blackheads or whiteheads on the skin.  Cysts are inflammatory lesions located deeper within the skin; therefore many of the treatments that are effective in treating blackheads and whiteheads do not improve cystic acne in the same way. Cystic acne can be painful and even lead to permanent scarring on the skin.  It is important that cystic acne be treated by a dermatologist. Laser and light therapies and antibiotics (both oral and topical) are the best measures against cystic acne. Whatever you do, do not put that Vicks Vapor Rub--it will only irritate your skin even further.
