Does your cyst bleed?

Recommended Posts

I'm a newbie here.

So...hello!

Wondering if when you drain a facial cyst, and the pus comes out, is blood coming out with it?

and why so much blood???

if i keep squeezing after all the pus is out, i find ALOT of blood comes out and it also comes out with the pus, it takes forever for it to stop bleeding, i have to stand there for 5 minutes with gauze, ...prolly best to not touch cyts :think:

well depends on how big and how deep it is, some of mine will stop bleeding in a minute or two and some of the bigger ones may take 10+ minutes

They say that if you pop a zit/cyst (which you should not do anyways) that you should stop squeezing at the first sign of blood. Something along the lines of draining blood is bad because it carries antibodies and white blood cells that fight the infection. The white/yellow pus is all you want out as it is the dead skin cells, keretin etc.
