Self-drained my left cheek cyst.

Carried out a mini surgery in my bathroom, was really excited about getting all the gunk out of my cyst!

-First, I bathed (washed face with cetaphil in the process of doing so).

-After I was done I used a cloth dipped in hot water to liquidify the gunk in the cyst, for easier drainage.

-Used a sterilised, fine needle and poked through the cyst head/opening/entrance to create a better entrance for the gunk to come out, making it easier to squeeze out.

-Disinfected my hands, made sure my face and hands were dry, then squeezed away at the cyst sac/wall!

At first nothing came out. ): Then after trying many different angles of squeezing, white pus came out!!!! Jackpot! I was so happy. I thought that my cyst was being successfully killed/weakened.

Sadly, not much white pus came out. After one or two squeezes, blood + clear liquid started to ooze out. Squeezed plenty of clear liquid out. When I couldn't get any more liquid out, the sac was still hard, with some solid gunk still inside. That made me real sad D: D: D:

Couldn't do much after the home surgery so I just ensured that all the liquid was done oozing out, washed my left cheek with cetaphil, dried the skin with a tissue and put BP all over my face.

I put a HUGEEEEE amount of BP on the cyst. I'm hoping to dry out the cyst so much such that it'll come to head again, so I can squeeze out more gunk in future, and perhaps after a few more "squeezings" the sac/wall will be well, empty of gunk and hopefully with continually drying of the sac using BP, it won't fill up again.

Cystic acne is truly the most horrendous, disgusting forms of acne one can get. Tender, long term, unsightly, confidence shattering, annoying. So irritating. I wish we were all just born with perfectly flawless skin.

ANYWAY, I was just watching cyst sac removal vids online. And they are SICK. The cyst removal vids online are just disgusting. But somehow, I can't stop watching them. It's kind of fascinating, how much pus can come out from the skin!

Don't believe me? Watch the sickest cyst removal I've ever seen in my whole entire life here:

Yeahh I used to drain all my cysts... made them way worse and generally scar horribly. I find now that my regimen of using a cleanser made with raw honey/ACV/fine sea salt/lemon juice/aloe vera gel/bit of warm water to dissolve the salt, really does help bring the cysts down. I've also changed my makeup to a basic mineral makeup which hasn't clogged or irritated my skin at all. I thought it would look so powdery and gross but it turns out it looks basically flawless if you apply it right. Of course, with cystic acne and bad scarring from popping em, my skin never looks flawless if you're within a 5 ft radius. I seriously just want to demolish my acne however I can. Personally I think mine's related to allergies/hormones... Really hoping for clear skin by the fall >.>
