Ugh depends on your particular brand of cyst. I get two kinds: One that is on the surface of the skin, about 10 mm or bigger in diameter, red, inflamed, very sore, and oozes puss and blood out of the whole general region if I try to pop it... or if it forms a head the amount of puss that can come out is incredible, and those with heads I usually have to pop because it relieves a lot of pain. The other kind is hard, deeper in the surface of the skin, and doesn't hurt as much. The first kind can take weeks or months if they rupture and are a little quicker if they don't, the second kind take longer (I have one on my cheek right now that's been slowly shrinking over the last four or five weeks. They all just suck, period. BP won't do a thing for those suckers.
