There is no quick fix. See the last link in my signature. Do not expect instant results. Keep using the techniques for at least 3 days before you give up.

If it's a truly monstrous cyst, and the techniques in my signature don't help after 3 days, you could call your derm and ask for a cortisone injection. But that's a last resort as those carry risks and side effects, including potential indented scarring from the injection.

its not a cystic. it is a big white-head, about the sizer of the black circle part of my eye.

My topic is entitled What to do with a cyst/pimple/zit (picked or not). It is not just for cysts. Toothpaste is ineffective.
