Yepp a cyst or a nodule... But don't get afraid, it's just the initial breakout; you will get better soon... Try to spot treat with differin on the pimple 2,3 times a day...

BTW, how often do you use differin? Try to use some BP as well, at least in the mornings [also I've heard that differin is the only retinoid that is stable in the presence of Benzoyl Peroxide?]. Like retinoid in the evening, BP morning

Yeah me too... It's not worth it. You just end up with a scab on your face for months.

Yep that happened to me... or I think it was a nodule I popped. Anyway, the swelling was enormous; not fun at all. Just let it disappear with time or get a cortison injection...
