I guess it's been awhile. The hydrocortisone cream was helpful, because it helped speed up the healing process of the cyst. I apply it everyday and the two are going away much more quickly than would happen. I also use it on other pimples to help them along as well. I don't know if it's helping or if I am just healing. My skin is very dry on my face, and has been flaking a lot, causing the lotion to sometimes just sit on top of my skin because of the flakes. So, I have had to start exfoliating with St. Ives sensitive skin exfoliating cleanser. It is kind of harsh and leaves my face red, but it also leaves it incredibly soft and smooth. My skin isn't getting worse, or breaking out anymore I don't think- knock on wood- so hopefully it will start clearing soon. I am going home in 11 days, so it would be amazing so have some kind of results. I have started to that a lot of the spots on my face are really just bad scars. Perhaps I need to think of things to do to help heal the scars. I really want to start eating garlic. I'm gonna start tonight at dinner time.
