Flat red mark... is this a cyst?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I have mild acne, but developed a flat, red mark close to my temple about a month ago. I have never picked at it or done anything to irritate the mark, but it still hasn't gone away. There is no bump at all, it is just flat and red, about 1/4 cm in diameter. Is this a cyst? Is there anything special I should be doing to make it go away? thanks in advance

Cysts are normally anything but flat - I have had them as big as golf balls... and from the pressure it actually bruises all around...and is extremely painful.

Here is what a cyst generally looks like on the face http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa21/Hp...ystforforum.jpg
