Those would be bad, that means there is gonna be a lot of pus inside and will need to be drained like a regular whitehead. What i prefer if i do get a cyst is one that doesnt develop into a head but just flattens and disappears like nothing was there at all.

cysts have pus inside just like whiteheads do, its just that they are deeper in the skin. White heads are better because they have less risk of scarring (if you leave it alone) and they are easier to treat.
