do under skin bumps after a breakout ever go?

Who has ever had a bump thats left after a cyst under the skin. You can't see it, it doesn't hurt but you can feel it. Its irritating, I always touch gently to see if its decreased but in 4 weeks its STILL the same! Is it still just going to be here in 1 yrs time? Im scared it will cause another cyst randomly sometime in the future. Im on tane right now and im 3 weeks in. This has been here from before tane. When will it go???

hey i got one of these and it caused a cyst once and then just stayed under my skin occasionally surfacing into a little pimple for about 4 months, so i wouldnt worry too much about it becoming a full blown cyst again. the way i got rid of mine was by applying 10% glycolic acid to it every night and eventually after several weeks it completely went (im pretty sure this was the aha as it hadnt shifted for about 4 months otherwise)

if you're on tane though aha will be way too drying for you so id say wait until you've finished your course. hope this helps!

thanks for the reply. You're right i just going to leave it, as long as its not noticeable it doesnt really matter. Tane usually makes skin shed faster anyway due to all the dryness so maybe like you in a few months it will be gone.
