acne on nose, not sure if its a cyst or not

Recommended Posts

i have had this lump on my nose for about 3 or 4 days now. i've had 3 or 4 cysts in the past, but i can't tell if this is another one. at first i thought it was a normal pimple, so i tried to pop it and a little puss came out-- could this still be a cyst? now it is red and inflammed. what should i do?

These ones on the nose that usually have pulse are the most painfull i think..

If you keep squeezing it it will be there for a while and u could push puss back in.

the best thing to do is wash your hands and face as normal and pat face dry.. no touching other parts of face..

then i would ice it for pain relief. maybe put ointment on it during night.

well never ever ever pop anything on your nose. ever.

not good to mess with it. even if its get to a big whitehead, unless the redness has gone then yeh go for it.

when i had it, icing it didnt do anything for me. i just took paracetomol and put BP on it and sudocreme.

took bout 2 weeks to completely flatten again

now theres no trace of it.
