I had one of those which I'm pretty sure was just one of the adverse reactions I had to codeine pain medication after outpatient surgery a couple of years ago. It was massive, dark purple, full of pus with the thinnest layer of skin holding back all of the squishy goodness...it was just so gross, painful, and embarrassing. I resorted to popping it myself with a needle. WHAT A MISTAKE! I have a deep pitted scar and it did not get rid of the cyst. It just filled back up and took ages to go away. I never did go to a dermatologist. I highly suggest you go vs. trying to take care of it yourself.
