Cyst turned into a scab -- what can I do about the scar?

Recommended Posts

I put cortisone on the cyst every 5 hours or so to make it shrink. About 3 days later, the cyst burst and it looks like blood was coming out after one of my showers. Now I have a big red spot on my cheek and I was wondering what I can do about it?

Um....let it heal....and don't pick.....it might not scar...

For me the ones that rupture like that don't scar.....it's only the ones that were deep under the skin, that never ruptued at all that left behind scars......

oh ok, but can I apply anything to it to assist in healing like neosporin or cortisone?

Also for those cysts that form a hard pertruding bump, can anything be done about them?

when i have a cyst rupture, or when i pop one (i know, i know, :P ), i usually put some neosporin cream (not ointment) on it for a few days.

Wow it heals a lot faster w/ neosporin than usual. My red spots are fading !
