Big boil or abnormally large cyst on face

Recommended Posts

been fighting acne since i was a 11. now 30, and this is the first to my knowledge of having a boil on my face. it's rediculously large. i tried applying heat pressure to bring it to a head. but that just worsens redness and swelling it would appear. it's about the size of pea.. a very large pea...lol

i have no medical. so i can't be treated for this. i don't know what to do. any recommendations?

If you got like 20 bucks, just go 2 a private derm. and get a cortisone injection.

In the US, the office visit alone would be $50 at least for a general practitioner. For a derm, the office visit alone could be up to $300. The person stated s/he does not have insurance.

Yeah i probably wouldn't go with a cortisone shot on the face....has a chance of scarring.
