I'm 20 yrs old and I started getting cysts on my face last year. I never really even had acne but all of a sudden I started developing horrible cysts. The annoying part is the majority of my face is clear, but when I get a cyst, its bad, and does not go away on its own. And the weirdest part is I ONLY get them on my cheeks.
So basically I broke out really bad and had 3 pimples connect and form one big cyst. I dont know what to do because it wont go away. I have had the cyst now for 2 months and its only getting bigger. I have attached a picture. It is not raised at all but i can feel a big lump under my skin.
I dont know what to do. Someone PLEASE help! And i have tried so many topicals (tea tree oil, duac, BP, aloe, ACV) and nothing works!
I dont want to get a cortisone shot because I got one before and it helped because the bump got smaller but I could still feel the bump under my skin a year later.
Im thinking about getting it surgically removed this time. Would that be a good idea?
I also forgot to add that I have already tried doxycycline, minocycline, retin a, and birthcontrol, and none of it helped.
And in the picture it looks like separate bumps on the surface but really it is one huge lump under the skin.
My derm is pushing accutane but I feel like its stupid to go on accutane for one stupid cyst. PLEASE HELP!
