In Topic: Your Experiences With Cystic Acne

Today, 09:40 AM

Using benzoyl peroxide, chemical exfoliaters and manual exfoliaters help my cysts go away faster, but to be honest, if I can see even a slight head on it I will use a sterilized needle to pop it. Goes away fast after that. I used to go to my dermatologist to get cortisone shots but after the last time I did that I had an atrophy for 4 months, that was way worse than any acne could be. Everyone's skin is different, I've never gotten a scar from any cyst/nodule or from popping.

In Topic: How To Get Rid Of A Cyst In 2 Days?

Hi !
 
I have a medium-sized cyst on my chin that is a little red. I need to get rid of it the faster I can. I'm applying Epiduo on it but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
 
Any tips?


You don't see a head on it then? I've iced mine before to help reduce them. Also sometimes I will crush up an aspirin pill, mix it with a little water to form a paste and apply it to reduce the inflammation.

Sorry to hear that maybe you should try treating it with a topical regimen if you can't do accutane again. I had moderate acne with cystic acne and using 10% benzoyl peroxide has cleared me almost completely. Some people get good results from the 2.5% but that wasn't strong enough for me.

Are you applying the BP close to your eyes?
