I had a huge cyst on my right cheek. The derm emptied it with a needle once 2, 5 week asgo, and it has become smaller and flatter but is still big enough to keep me basically locked indoors and completely avoiding going to public places.
I had another appointment with the derm yesterday but he said he shouldn't poke it open again or inject cortisone because it's heeling and is not infected anymore, that there is only "dead' blood inside. I'm eating antibiotiics and some otehr medicine that helps for the infected areas elsewhere on my face.
Does anyone have expericence on how to get the cyst go down any faster, in a case like this when supposedly there's no yellowish liquid inside, only the blood? This has really put my life in a halt, I'm even working from home for the moment as I don't want to show my face anywhere!

I am female and I to struggle with having folks stare (or pretend they're not staring). The bandaid helps me to hide a little. I'm hoping the the opening that is still there will continue to drain, but at this point I have stopped pressing and mashing. It seems to drain nicer if I sleep on the affected side while trying to keep my face from actually pressing against the pillow.

About three years ago i developed a cyst on my left cheek and it seemed to grow in size like half inch but rounded like bump sometimes hard or soft it is blood filled.Sometimes i nic it while shaving and it will continue bleeding if left unchecked. I found that applying Vitamin A over it will reduce the size plus apple cider vinegar with the mother cloud from your local health food store it has to be done everyday.I also started a daily regement of a blood purifier in liquid form to be added to a glass of water use recommendation on bottle also available at health food store .Taking Vitamin A orally too.For a handsome man to be plagued with this is embarrassing but in knowing i have options of natural methods of removal of this cyst besides surgical removal which does not dissolve the root cause

i had this happen to me a few times and after the cyst being on my skin for a year my derm suggested finacea which worked really well and then the second time my derm said to use tazorac or any retinoid and that worked as well. i think it helped to get whatever was left in there out of there.
