If it vanishes, it gets reabsorbed as the white blood cells do their work to kill the infection.

good question, i usually pop it multiple times until it goes down. IV never had the patience to sit and watch its life cycle

It usually will harden and just come out of the skin. I have had it happen before. I usually pop them because they look pretty gross, but the few times I haven't they just come out after a while. Like 3-7 days.

the problem is sometimes they come out so much that you are left with pitted scars for years
