Cystic acne is the most severe type of inflammatory acne that causes painful, pus-filled pimples to form deep under the skin, typical on Butt, Chest, Neck, Back, Shoulders and Upper Arms. Acne starts when oily dead skin cells clog pores. Followed by bacteria getting into the pores, causing swelling or inflammation. Acne cysts are often painful and probably cause scarring.
