I am SO tired of this! I have gotten a cyst below my mouth / on my chin injected 5-6 times this summer. Yes, I've lost count. Within the past 2 weeks, I've had it injected on 2 separate occasions. Every time, it subsides a little - or it even looks like it's fully gone after a little while - and then it comes right back. I've partially extracted it once before, but there's apparently a deep infection. My derm has been unwilling to extract it since my skin is ridiculously fragile and sensitive, but I wonder if she will finally do it this time. I have to wait another week to see her, which means I'll be a hermit until then, and at some point, I'll probably take matters into my own hands and make a giant mess when I fail to extract the core. I've been on Minocycline 200 mg and Tazorac 0.05% every night for over 2 months, and before that, I was using Retin-A 0.025% every night and Minocycline 150 mg since mid-May. I upped my Spironolactone to 75 mg in mid-May as well, but this cyst won't go away! I've tried using Avar-E (sodium sulfacetamide 10% and sulfur 2%) on the spot, and I have to use Biafine over my Tazorac some nights to quell insane dryness, but things seem to just get worse and worse in this area. When I go out, I have to cover it with makeup even when it's not bulbous because of the insane red marks/scarring, and I know that doesn't help, but if I don't use powder on it, there's a target on my face. Who am I kidding? There's a target even when I have put powder on it, but I leave home without something covering it! I wonder if the makeup continues to irritate it. I've used Everyday Minerals or ages with no problems, and I never wear full makeup, just spot coverage. I'm just going to stay inside until next Wednesday when I see the derm... So sad. Please help!
