I keep getting large, painful cystic acne on my chin. One goes away & new one comes up. It's leaving scars. What can I do to prevent them/treat them?

In brief: Serious Rx

You've already had microdermabrasion.
It's time to ask your treating dermatologist about comprehensive care for your acne, up to and including systemic tetracycline or a similar antibiotic, and isotretinoin.
