I have had a cyst like thing on my cheek for over a year.
It was injected a couple of times a year ago but to no avail. Tazorac (strongest topical) has had nearly no effect on it.
I have also tried: minocycline, doxycycline, tea tree oil, gunilla of sweden, aczone, acanya, tazorac (gel and cream), baking soda, honey, aloe vera, fasting, hot tea bag, cold compress, apple cider vinegar, castor oil, cortisone shots, only veggie diet (for a month), no carbs (for a month), vitamin a, b5, c, d3, d, e, acv pills, zinc pills, ibuprofen,
mario badescu, drawing salve, renne roleau, aha (dan's), chemical peel from amazon, sunshine/absolutely no sunshine, and so forth. I have tried everything under the sun.
I went to dermatologist and she said it needed to be extracted via surgery (subcision) or shot with a higher concentrated cortisone, however i want to avoid both because they can, and most likely will, lead to scarring. She tried to puncture it to pull out whatever was underneath and hardly any pus came out.
Two dermatologists are not sure if it is a persistent pimple that is not reactive to anything, raised scar tissue, or a sebaceous cyst.
Again, it has been there for over a year, is still red, and NOTHING seems to affect it.
thanks for help.
