three months is a long time - go see your derm, a steriod injection will make them go away - if you've never had this done before make sure the doctor (who hopefully has done this before) uses a very diluted solution to minimize chances of atrophy
but sometimes it's the only way to make these cysts go away

Cortisone shots work the best for "blind" cysts. One thing to note is that all cysts do have a whitehead, but it is buried so low that you typically can't get to it. If for some reason I couldn't get a cortisone shot (usually because it's just too expensive), I have been able to get a cyst to come to the surface by applying strong salicylic acid (10% or higher) to the cyst with a q-tip, three times a day for a week.
I don't get notified of your response to my post unless you QUOTE my post.
Please only quote a small portion of the post so it doesn't clutter up the thread.
HOW I STAY 100% CLEAR:
Spironolactone (anti-androgen drug)
Betaine HCL with each meal
Avoiding silicones and occlusives in skin/hair products
