So I'm an Accutane user and I am currently towards the end of the my second month on 40mg daily. I've noticed that on this medication I get occasional flare-ups, and last Sunday I had a big one. I had 3 cysts emerge, which is not usual for me, as I only usually have mild acne, however, I scar very easily and often end up with a couple of very large pimples at any one time. This is the reason I am on Accutane, the Ro-Accutane brand.
I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to reduce the cyst size, as I have a very large red lump (under the skin) at the side of my nose which has been there since Sunday, and its my 20th birthday on Monday, which I am celebrating the Easter Sunday. Any help or advice would be great as I would like to reduce it!
I have tried a hot compress, ice, Sudocrem (Zinc Oxide), and a remedy claimed on the Internet, though I am unsure how reliable it is, which is Vicks Vaporub. I don't think Cortisone injection is an option due to high waiting times in the UK for a derm.
