Hello Fellow Bumps with Clear Fluid sufferers:
I have the same problem. They appeared overnight one day and covered my whole face and yikes -- changed me overnight from happy and outgoing to pretty much a recluse. Just -- awful. Weirder still, I have been to literally thirty or so dermatologists over an eight year period -- four biopsies -- and no diagnosis. I don't understand this. I have been to the heads of reputable hospitals, the best derms -- no diagnosis.
I'll cut to the chase. After several years of this some things have helped somewhat -- it's not gone but it's not as horribly disfiguring as it was:
NEEM powder. This is an ayurvedic cure for inflammation. It comes in a powder. Make a mask with water or calendula gel. Leave it until it dries. Wash off. Helps.
FOR ME -- I wash, then use isopropyl alcohol to disinfect both the cyst and a needle. I pop it with the needle. Squeeze NOT ALL but some of the liquid out. I put on a topical steroid cream to keep the caking down somewhat. (The liquid cakes the day after -- it's not a scab, but like a scab) Anyway, this cream is called DESONIDE cream. It comes with a ton of possible side effects so contact your doctor and listen up about side effects. I have not experienced any however it can have a lot.
The needle extraction helps. Also helped A BIT -- blu u therapy with levulan.... but expensive and not that helpful. But it did help.
Try also FULLERS EARTH masks. This is a volcanic clay used in industrial oil spills. It is a super-absorbent clay. You can get this at an Indian store also. It is called MULTI MITTI in ayurvedic healing. (The only place I could find it is in our "Little India" I.e. Indian part of the city.
Soaking my skin in a combo of fairly hot water, baking soda, epson salts and sea salts helps a bit also. Pat dry
Does anyone know what on earth these are? I have no staph, no infection, no rosacea, no rheumatoid illness... no doctor can tell me what this is. It is not folliculitus or acne. It is not sebaceous hyperplasia. It is not follicular spongiosis. It MAY BE a type of pustular atopic dermatitis -- but they cannot help me with it. Nada! Nothing! It's 2013!!! I have been to the Cleveland Clinic -- some of the best dermatologists in the world -- no one know what these are. If anyone does I'd love to know. BTW I believe the liquid is called serous.
Best, of luck,
I guess even if we feel really badly we are not alone
The Neem and needle extractions are making a difference for me. Be warned: If you have staph and do this you can get into some serious trouble. So see a derm first and don't spread an infection around. If you do extract -- safety first! Wash, sterilize, wash.
