Cyst turned black under skin

8 posts in this topic

I have had a cyst under my skin for almost 6 weeks...

I got some of the junk out 6 weeks ago, and then let it heal...it turned black and seemed to go deeper into my skin. I saw the derm meanwhile and he said that it would go away on its own.. but it hasn't

it doesnt extend out of the surface that much but I can feel it, and its a big black spot that wont go away

how can I bring this THING to a head...

Ive used the following on it.. BP, AHA lotion, tazorac... any ideas? I want to pop it but its too deep inisde my skin..

thanks guys..

so you guys think its just blood, cause I can def feel something under my skin... the weird part is that it feels like its coming closer to the surface,.. I should just leave it alone? or will I eventually have to drain the blood?

i actually think when i had one i drained the blood but i'm not sure if that is the right thing to do, my skin is pretty tough and isn't prone to scarring.

Anyone have any tips for draining this thing?

Its really driving me crazy and i have a feeling that it wont heal until I get it out of my skin...its really close to the surface but there is no head or anything...Should I apply anything or could I do anything to bring it to some sort of head or make it easier to drain??

thanks..
