I have a few cysts on my jawline that won't disappear. They're fairly small, it's the only part of my face where I get cysts, and I'm not even getting new ones, but I can't get these to go away! Every so often they'll get close enough to the surface that I can drain them, and they'll shrink down, and sometimes they'll even shrink down on their own, but they always eventually get inflamed/infected again. I've always heard that you can't really spot-treat a cyst, and the best thing is to wait for them to go away on their own, but these won't go away! Is there any sort of spot treatment I can use to get rid of them, any way to draw them to the surface to be drained for good, anything I can do at all short of acne surgery or cortisone? I don't have a derm and it might be $$$ to find one just for this.

I have had this same problem, I use natures cure & its seems to help them. If I feel a cyst coming on Ill usually put ice on it for about 10 minutes a couple time a day and that seems to help too.
