Hi All,

So I went to a dermatologist last week for my cystic acne and got prescribed Bactrim with Mycin for topical use. I'm not expecting my acne to clear within a week, but ever since the treatment from day 1, I have been only getting daily whitehead outbreaks. This is rather unexpected as I usually have deeply embedded cystic acne that hardly becomes whitehead overnight, and now I'm getting red inflamed white heads all over the lower half of my face (at least 3-5 daily EST). My face has since become worse than before the treatment?

Also I do not have any known allergy to either medication prescribed.

I am wondering if there are also others who experienced similar initial outbreaks such as mine and do they become better overtime, or it is actually not normal?
