Swollen cysts/nodules...

I don't know what these things are, but it reminds me of a huge volcano. Builds up, and then the head of the zit dents in. Painful and ugly. Will anything reduce the swelling of the volcano?

Wrap some ice in paper towel or thin cloth towel and apply directly to the lesion for 2 minutes on, 2 minutes off. It will REALLY help the pain, swelling, and redness.

If you want to give your whole face a treat: put a wet clean washcloth in the freezer. Let it get really cold. Put the whole thing over your face and your whole face will feel nicely refreshed.
