Treatment for cystic acne / red bumps?

Hi AM,

I’m 29 yrs old with oily skin & have the problem of cystic acne(red bumps). These pimples started @age of 14, I suppose, but have decreased over time. I have been following the AM’s acne regimen for a month. The condition have improved a lot. But the red bumps which I think are cystic acne appear 1-2 in no. every week & they leave such dark spots that is hard to go resulting that I have never seen my face spot less. 🙁 :'(

I have been using the following since a month:

1.  FabIndia Tea Tree Face Wash

2. AHAGlow face wash

3. Suncote Gel

4. Retino-A 0.025%

5. Aloe Veda Aloe Vera Gel

6. Sebamed Clear Face Gel

7. Glyco 6 &

8. Carofit Ultra

I did not find Sebonac gel in my Locality(West delhi) nor online, so I bought this Retino-A. I must say that, I’m very much impressed with the Acne regimen. No frequent Pimples as such, but I do get 1 or 2 red bumps every week & they stay for atleast 4-5 days & leave such spots that stays for months which is so depressing. I tried Retino-A on these spots but nothing happened. I also applied a dot of  AHAGlow face wash on it but it remained as it is. Lastly, I applied a dot of Clean & Clear skin balancing Moisturizer(which contains 2% salicylic acid) but it seems nothing can beat it up.

Can someone please give me some more alternatives to stop these red bumps from appearing & even if they do how to suppress them so that they do not stay for long. I’m really stressed out with such dark spots & red bumps. Please advice….
