could someone please explain to me why you would pop a cyst, when it comes to a head, or course... I have read you should make sure to get all of the nasty stuff out.... Will this make it heal sooner... Is this better to do than to leave it alone.. Please reply... thanks.
you know the rule, don't touch...it will go down eventually and if you pop it there's a good chance your gonna have a scar.

This is going to sound wierd but it is really true. The first cyst i had i left alone until i could see a derm, about 2 months after it showed up. I now have a huge scar from it. In college, I didnt have a derm to see, so I began trying to pop cysts. I found I had to wait till I could atleast see a faint head, or until I could put a needle in it and have it feel a certain way, but then I would squeeze it and literally have the crap inside it explode out. I haven't gotten a scar from this ever *knock on wood*. It also seems to heal faster if i can do this.
I agree. If there is a sign of a head, I generally try to get the crap out. I generally don't have scars, save one or two keloid scars where I basically messed around before the spot had come to a head. However, if you are prone to scarring easily, probably best to leave well enough alone.

I always popped cysts. Only ever got scars around my nose, but that was because there was constantly a cyst there. Just make sure when you pop that you get the hard centre of the cyst out. Nearly always there will be a hard "core" to any cyst. Just squeezing out the pus isn't enough, if you don't get the core of the cyst out it'll just infect again. goodluck, nothing worse than going for a pop and it not popping...
That is exactly whati have found! And not getting it out leads to it a much much much worse cyst. Though i have found when i do get it to pop, it (This is going to be gross) literally explodes and usually ends up on the mirror. Sorry, TMI, i know.
