suppose to let dry up rather then moisturise. but i got a similar thing 2 u and i cant wait around for these damn scabs2 fall off so im using moisturiser but wen i put it on skin the skin sucks it so fast its like a bloody vacuum hoover. so im alternating with aloevera and vaseline hopefully these dead skin will fall of b4 tuesday as i got work argh! the dried up cyst will go on its own but u can put something like duac on it and let it go much faster, donno if it works but i think it does. let me knw wot u think.

I had this problem a week ago or so and I applied Neosporin at night and covered with a bandaid: by Day 2 it was much better. I think it helped because it moisturizes and has antibiotic action as well.
