Ok, I am very sympathetic to everyone who suffers acne on here.
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?

my face has never scared which seems strange as always insert a pin about 0.5cm to get to the pus and a few times I have sliced into the cyst (ouch!!!!) with a razor blade, see the pics of me in adult acne=-
(Pics)Phew! My Cystic Spot Is Dissappearing Fast For Christmas Day

anyway about 30 years ago I discovered what the cause was that gave me cysts after suffering terrible for 10 years and I still get caught out every year or two years now.


Have you ever had trouble getting the pus out?
I've had this one for months and I only get blood when I poke it. Do you just keep poking in many places until you get the pore? How do you find the pore? When it's a huge cyst it's different than a normal zit; there's no obvious center to poke at........

thats the problem,finding the right pore,when I first get the cyst I insert a pin right in about 0.5cm and I push my fingers inwards rather than squeeze, if nothing comes out I try another pore sometimes with success but not very often,I presume that it's not ripe enough yet.
As I only get a cyst now every one or two years since finding the poison that I was eating,now 30 years on I am still devastated when one appears and i I don't find the right pore after a couple of days I slice it open with a razor blade(ouch) and put 2 steri-strips eitherside to make it look as I have cut myself and at bedtime I wet the spot and put salt on a plaster.
I can only remember having one cyst that lasted over a month,I was squeezing it everday getting pus out of it until one day a rock hard ball flew out.
Why don't you see if you have the same intolerance/allergy as me and my daughter,maybe you are consuming this poison everyday that feeds the existing cyst and forms new ones?.

It doesn't sound like you really know what caused it though other than vague "sauces" blends...............right?
I actually normally don't eat anything like that anyway; I have a pretty strict diet of whole natural foods but have cheated a little bit before and that might be part of why I got this now.

Also curious, have you ever had cortisone injected into your cysts? I dont think I can cut into mine because I've had so much cortisone injected into them.

Do your's have that "sac" feeling to them? I'm trying to figure out what happens to that when the cyst goes away.

No I don't have a 'sac' feeling but you are right,I am not sure what exactly causes my cysts but my daughter was told she is intolerant to MSG.
I do know what to avoid,that's why I get caught out occasionally after 30 years of my discovery,
as I live in the UK the food brand names are probably different like pot noodles,schwartz/colemans packet mix in sauces,gravy/tea granules,instant soup/noodles etc etc,I think in the USA,ramen and pho are the same,basically it's anything that has a long shelf life and you add boiling water to activate,a favourite item found in restaurants/cafe's and fast food outlets and even some prescription tablets, these are absolute poison to my body and I know 100% they cause me to have cysts.

I've recently notice the same symptoms on my face. But i noticed a pattern, it seems as though it's caused by hormonal changes of my body. I've noticed that when i'm pms'ing (about to get my period) I get these HUGE BIG FIRM BUMPS on my lower chin/neck area and my cheeks. They're hideous! I feel like they're a pimple but when i try popping them, i only get blood or a very small pop with pus coming out. I know it's bad but i keep picking at them but i want them to go away. I'm lucky that i don't get scars, that's why i keep picking at them in hopes they'll disappear, shrink faster! Please help. My dieting isn't too bad and i drink only water/coconut water or fresh blended fruits/veggies. I don't eat too much greasy stuff. I was scared it was cancerous. Can someone please advise what i should do before going to a dermatologist?
