Should treat: The cyst if left alone would take a few days to weeks to resolve but may leave a scar. These should be treated with an acne regimen and maybe a steroid injection into the cyst.

There : There are many options for acne, but often Accutane is used for the cystic, scarring type. After the acne is controlled, a dermatologist can discuss options to treat the scarring such as chemical peels or laser resurfacing. Read more Accutane treatment at the link below. I hope that helps!
