Should I pop it?

Recommended Posts

I developed a new cyst last week on my forehead and 1 or 2 days ago it formed a white head. I havent popped it yet. Should I pop it? I feel as if it will eventually pop on its own in the shower or something.

No dun pop it. Mine will burst by itself usually after shower. Only then i will squeeze the pus gently. N then it will be crater like scar. I just rub toner n BP with it n let it dry. N let the scab fall off by itself too to prevent bad scarring.

I will not put BP on it because it will make redmarks last longer. Also, my zit won't scab after I pop it unless I use a lot of force which is not needed since it can pop VERY easily. It is definitely ripe at this time so icing is not needed. I also want to stay away from ibuprofen since I'm taking cold medicine. I am already applying neosporin. I have a feeling it will pop on its own very soon...
