Anyone who has lived with cystic acne knows how hard the condition can be to deal with.
Sufferers can either choose to wait around for months on end for the big, read, aching lumps to go down on their own, or they can pay a visit to a super expensive dermatologist for a pricey cortisone injection to flatten the bump.
Or, according to a Reddit user, you can pay just £4 for a sulfur cream to treat your outbreaks.
The user, who goes by the name of TheQuinnBee, wrote a post titled "To whoever recommended sulfur cream, freaking thank you."
She continued: "I had two cystics that were driving me bonkers - they were freaking painful and noticeable and another was popping."
She layered the cream, which costs just £4.38 per tub, on her cystic spots for just 10 minutes before washing it off.
"The new [cyst] vanished like immediately; the old ones are nearly gone. I haven't developed any new ones yet. It feels so freaking good not to have these painful cysts on my face."
After TheQuinnBee's post when viral, other users rushed to praise the 'miracle' cream, with one adding: "I live for it. Pimples die from it."
Another user added: "Yes! I started using sulfur cream as a spot treatment and it is a miracle cream for overnight pimple killer!"
Reddit-users aren't alone in their love for the product either, as it has nearly 700 glowing reviews on Amazon, thanks to it's spot-curing powers.
One consumer wrote: "Amazing product. I never had acne or pimples until now (late 20's) thanks hormones.
"I tend to get large cystic pimples and nothing cleared it up, that is until I found this product! Ive tried super expensive brands, treatments and so much more but nothing seemed to help. I can put this on for 20 mins and like magic the swelling, redness and breakouts are basically gone! Helps tremendously with scars and prevention!"
However, the cream doesn't have a secret ingredient - it's powers are down to its sulfur content which has natural antibacterial properties which can kill acne-causing bacteria while preventing new bacteria from growing, according to dermatologist Mona Gohara.
