hey there,

you know the feeling when a cyst is forming? first the pain and then the bump gradually appears?

just wondering if anyone has tips they use to prevent the cyst from getting huge?

i felt one coming on this morning, so i've iced it...hoping it would decrease the inflammation...who knows if it'll work...

ice, ibprofun (or something similar), and BP is what people usually use.. Some people also like aspirin masks, but this never really worked for me.

Ice is a definite yes. benadryl seems to work for me, it helps stop the swelling of the cyst. also steam and spot treatment work
