It started as a painful lump and, according to human nature, I squeezed and picked at it. About a week later, it got infected and I had a staff infection. I went to urgent care to take get a shot and topical cream to get rid of the infanigo. As soon it was gone, the cyst was still there.
It's about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, with blood patches, and what seems to be puss pockets. I have been urging my parents to take me somewhere to get it looked at, but they said they can't do anything about it... All dermatologists in my area are booked and I would have to wait another month just to go get an appointment.
I've tried everything. From hot compresses, to face wipes, to topical acne medications (like clearasil). However, it won't go away. Nothing has changed what-so-ever.
What should I do? Is there anyway I can get into a dermatologist sooner? Can I go into an urgent care facility and get it looked at? Will they even be able to do anything about it? I'm getting desperate now, and I've been covering it up with makeup lately (I'm a guy) because it looks so bloody and gross.
People don't know what it is, so they ask me. It's extremely embarrassing to answer. One day I was so embarrassed, I sat in a bathroom stall at lunch because I wanted to avoid all the questions.
Please help, I need to get rid of this ASAP.
