Sorry if I'm being vague, I typed up the whole thing and the site crashed without me copying it....:
About 1.5 months ago I got a cyst in the crease of my nose where it meets my cheek. I was an idiot and tried to pop it, even lance it, so it became very inflamed...thus I got a cortisone shot which worked wonderfully...however 2 weeks later, it re-inflamed to about 60% of its original size.
I got another shot which also worked nicely, however it slowly began to re-inflame again after a week. After my 3rd shot, the swelling seemed to disappear, however I am left with a slightly raised bump that is faded dark red in color. It is about the size of a squished, elongated skittle (sorry, only comparison I can think of lol).
I heard vaseline is good for any type of scar, so should I use that or is there a chance that it might irritate it? I'm scared to death though to even touch it because Im afraid I am going to deal with inflammation again, as a cyst in that location makes even the smallest amount of inflammation extremely noticeable.
It's currently and has been painless for a little less than a month. I really do not think it should come down to surgery, because I think I should definitely give it more time to see if it heals....also that might leave me with a worse scar. What do you guys think I could do?
