this site is awesome! lots on info!! about 1.5 weeks ago i noticed a small bump on my nose, i thought it was a wart! i wasn't sure! my skin has always been pretty clear, the occasional small break out during the right time of the month, but for the most part pretty clear! I went to the dr yesterday (not a demo, just family dr) and he said it was a cyst, he prescribed me generic Bactrim DS and clindamycin phosphate topical. Told me is should disapear, i was reading and everyone is talking about popping it, do you have to do that for it not to come back? sucks having a Rudolph nost during the holidays!!

anyone got any comments i would appreciate it!

thanks!

Welcome to the world of cysts. I hope your stay isn't long. :D

Popping it will have no effect on whether it comes back or not, as far as I'm aware. The only way to ensure the exact same cyst won't flare up again is to have it surgically removed. But that doesn't mean another one won't pop up later in the same spot, or near it.
