Ugh! I have another cyst on my face, there are two MASSSIVE ones on my chin, literally jutting out like mountains. I tried polysporin trick and it sorta helped one but the other is a monster. Suggestions?? I have pics on both sides of my chin 😥

Icing and Naproxene did wonders for me with those. To be honest I also sometimes used light steroid creams on them, I don't know of this is good but it worked for me.

Have you tried adding an NSAID pill? I think Naproxene really works best ( here it is Dolormin for women lol, no clue what brand it is over there.) It calms down a good portion of the inflammation. For me I found out that the size and pain of one of those cysts does not correlate with the amount of gross stuff inside. Sometimes a huge swelling and inflammation was appearing around a middle- sized cyst. My whole chin was swollen . Whatever you do, totally don't touch it. Sometimes I wanted to pop it just for the pain to go away. This was in all cases a bad decision. Unless it is showing a white head, don't touch. An otc cortisone cream applied thickly under a bandaid can really help alternated with the icing. Poor you, that looks really painful :(
