How To Heal An Open Cystic Spot Wound?

12 posts in this topic

Hi, I have had a cystic spot since monday, and I have been using tea tree oil (which burned my skin) sudocrem, hydrocortisone, hot compresses

I think i burned my skin with the hot compresses, because now i am left with the skin peeling around the edges, and I have a huge red lump on my face

I am so self concious and this has taken a huge knock on my confidence. How long will it take for this to go away? And do I just keep using sudocrem? I want it to be less red and angry looking by this evening when I see my boyfriend.

It is impossible to cover up with make up, it clings to the peeling skin and wont stay on the red lump, it's too slippery.

Please help:( I am from the UK, we don't have neosporin

Apparently Witch Hazel is good for that kinda thing. Since it's an open wound I would just make sure it's clean and try not to mess with it too much.

How to heal cystic acne? Well when i get cystic acne i don't usually think of healing the cyst per se. I focus more on healing my brain .Because it pushes me in a deep depressive downward spiral. :S Cystic acne is a curse to mankind.

P.S-God save us from it.

Castor oil and/or coconut oil and/or aloe are great for healing open cuts/wounds/acne.

Do you get a isolated big cystic spot regularly,the trouble with them is the pus is located deep inside and rarely comes to the surface,which means it will be around for a while as your body defences have to attack it and clear it.I had this from 15 to 25,week in week out but have now been clear fo many years after discovering that I was intolerant/allergic to a chemical in certain man made foods,maybe you have the same condition or do you believe in being "spot prone".

Apply Aquaphor. The same thing happened to me. Awhile back I Burned a small cyst with tea tree oil (will never use that stuff again). The cyst turned dark brown. Applied Aquaphor and a layer of dead skin or whatever it was flaked off the next day. Cyst was still there but the burned part came off.

hi there! cystic acne is really depressing and unappealing. I have had the same experience in the past and because I have sensitive skin, some treatments made it even worse. Now, I am living quite a good life because I have lessened my acne stress. What i used is the essential bar from Buzzy's essential. I so love it because it delivers the result that i need! The only thing is, it can only be ordered online. It is not yet available here in my area. My aunt who lives in Canada sent me this soap and i am now asking her to send me some again. Their site is *Moderator edit, URL removed - read the board rules*

ry this and combine it with witch hazel toner and emu oil as a moisturizer. after a few days, you will see the difference smile.png
