Cysts-Dont we just hate them

Markpizey-say no to acne



In my teenage years i developed a cyst on my face which was not allowed to be taken of for 6 years so I understand your frustrations.

The Cyst was a constant battle between me and it. Every morning a look in the mirror questioned and shaped how i was going act for the rest of the day. A lack of confidence can lead to a lack in person, and a cyst, acne, and scar can all do this. I remember walking around and seeing people stare like the sun had just exploded in their face, it knocks you down and made me feel like a different person. The confidant Mark who was once known was slowly dripping away from existence.

Its the strength we have all got inside of us to get up, put our clothes on and walk out of the door what must be used in situations like this. Getting on my own back about this cyst, was my choice and the buck stops with me, for with-holding myself from what life has to offer not the cyst.

Anyway lets move onto some theory of options for people who have cysts.

First of all Cysts, can in a small percentage of people sort them selves out on their own, though this is very rare.

Squeezing a cyst can lead to a massive discharge, though this is not advisable, and will only cause more cysts to develop. Also this can lead to infection, and I have seen many cases where people’s faces have swollen up due to popping a cyst. One person whole side of his face was swollen with in minutes of popping the cyst. For the record the cyst did become smaller for a short while, but then grow back to a larger size in this case.

Many people I have researched, and spoken too have popped it on their own with a clean needle. The chances are that the removal of a cyst will leave a scar. But doing a doggy ‘DIY I’m not trained€™ job’ on it will increase the size of the scar potentially massively than allowing a professional to carry out the job. Also on average these were prone to infection. I’m not saying people haven't done a very good job of this but its tricky, and the whole sac of the cyst has to be fully removed otherwise the cyst will fill back up and return.

I have spoken to people who have used tea tree oil to try drying up the area and bringing the fluid to the surface. Some people who I spoken to have sworn by the effectiveness of this. Tea tree oil is amazing oil, though I have not read any supportive ‘medical’ material and evidence on this working on cysts, so therefore try tea tree oil at your own risk and can not suggest this to anyone

Finally I conclude the boring obvious conclusion is to see a dermatologist, who will remove the Cyst. Also if it leaves a scar you can also push for them to refine the scar a few months later

Cysts we hate them but let’s not let them take over your life that’s just adding insult to pain
