Hey, I had something similar after a really deep cyst on my cheek, the lump left over wasn't painful but I could feel it and it was red and slightly raised. I found using a retinoid cream (differin) and incorporating some gentle aha's into my routine helped to exfoliate my skin and gradually the redness and lump have went away. Massaging the area also helped, every night for a couple of minutes with gentle pressure, as if trying to flatten it out when I applied differin at night. Read up on massage for cysts or scar tissue it can help your body to break down the scar tissue and reabsorb it. It did take me pretty much a year for it to completely go but it got better and better over time, good luck xx

27 years old. Been suffering on and off acne for the last 10-13 years. Can't remember exactly when it started. My early twenties were probably my clearest, I think mainly due to birth control, finally thought I had cracked it last year, clearest skin of my life, but when you think things are going well it comes back to bite you! My skin has been going downhill since about September time 2012. I'd say the last few months have been the worst. Currently on Dianette and Differin since middle of June, I have a wee blog so will keep everyone posted.
Good to know you're not alone in all this.
