However out of all the pictures I've seen I haven't seen anyone's who looks like mine and I'm wondering if this is even acne?
Nothing works on these 2 "cysts" I have. I've been trying heat, all kinds of stuff which just the burn and peel the skin with no results.
I've been stuck with this cyst for really bad one for 3 months and have had 1 more pop up in the last 3 weeks that I've been treating and fighting every single day. My life revolves around my cysts; I don't want to go out in public so I spend all my time trying to treat it. I'm going crazy.
I'm getting so frustrated. So many people on here are like, oh yeah, cystic acne might take a week or two to go away............I've had this for months!!!
Am I totally abnormal in this? having cysts that lasts and are big bumps on your face for months?
The pictures I see of cystic ance are not as big or really anything like mine. The pictures I've seen are maybe big under the skin but only look like more normal large pimples/redness.
Mine have the whole size showing up. As in as big as they are under the skin is what you see on top. They are .5mm wide; the size of a dime and they are high off my face. When I push on it you can see a white kinda firm area; almost what scar tissue looks like but it's fluctuant, I can feel the "sac" and it's kinda like gel material inside. And people talk about popping them; thats not possible with mine. Every time I've pricked them there's just blood.
I'm suspecting I have hormonal issue because they're only on my chin and the rest of my face is clear.
Unless, these are boils? I just don't know what to do; I'm desperate.
I've never in my life dellt with this before. I did have cysts before but they never stuck around this long. I think it's because of my hormones I've been so stressed that my body is having a hard time fixing itself.
But I'd like to know if anyone has any input for long term cysts; what's your most effective remedy? Is there anything that works for these typs of deep large raised bumps with no head?
Is there anyone on here that has what I have?
