This happened to me for the first time a few months ago. I had previously had cortisone shots with a lot of success, but this particular cyst came back a few days afterward. It was frustrating. I just stuck with my topicals and oral antibiotics and it eventually went away, as they all do. I had another cyst at the time that I had injected too and that one didn't come back. That one was 5x bigger and deeper than the one that came back too, it's very weird. At the same time my derm did a bacteria culture and it came back positive for a rare growth of staph. I'm not sure which cyst she did the culture on though, but that could have been why the cyst came back. I'm rambling...I'll just go now...

Thanks for the help, i think ill be patient on this one but im really hoping this stupid cyst will go away just frustrates me knowing that in a week and a few days i'll be going back to my derm to have microdermabrasion and im pretty sure its not going to happen when this cyst keeps hanging out on my skin :(
