Best treatment for cystic acne, I get one on my chin once in a while but it takes forever to go away, do I need antibiotics? Thank you!

In brief: See a dermatologist

If the cysts appear with your periods, this is likely hormonally driven, and your doctor may consider medications to stabilize hormonal fluctuation.
If cysts are rare, he/she might inject the cyst with a steroid to reduce inflammation.
