Dos
1) Keep your skin clean. Never go to bed without washing your face, at least. Sleep is the best time for the skin to heal.

2) Drink plenty of water.
3) Remove your makeup before you go to sleep.
4) Avoid direct sunlight.
5) Use an oil-free sunscreen while going out.
6) Avoid direct heat. It could worsen your acne.
7) Avoid pollution and humidity as much as possible.
8) Wear loose clothes so as to avoid their rubbing against the skin.
9) Avoid contact with headbands, helmet straps and other such things to minimize friction.
10) Use cosmetics which have a water base. But try to use minimum makeup.
11) Wash your face twice daily but don't overdo it. Over-washing can rid your skin of essential oils.

Don'ts
1) Don't use harsh soaps to wash your face. Mild ones are the best recommended.
2) Don't sleep with your face placed on the pillow. It invites dust particles to settle down on the skin.
3) Don't pick, pop or squeeze your pimples.
4) Don't use moisturizers or creams which have an oil base.
5) Don't use facial scrubs on the affected area.
6) Don't eat too much of oily, fried and fatty foods.
7) Don't try to remove your pimples yourself, consult a dermatologist.
8) Males should avoid shaving for as long as possible and should use a new blade every time they shave.

    I use a neosporin type product (anti-bacterial) for my cystic acne and it reduces the swelling and pain in about 3-4 days. I also apply it to "unpopped" pimples.
