Anyone ever use poultice

Hi,

I dont get cysts often but thought i would add my two-cents!

Once I had cyst on my cheek below my eye! Basically it was sore as hell and picked it!

My mum is a former nurse and applied heated 'poultice' to the area! You place it between the cotton that would place on a wound or under a plaster (dont know the proper name) and heat in microwave! It draws out ALL the puss! Especially efective for cysts that are picked and inflamed! Its an old school remedy but was used in hospitals etc so its not a wifes home remedy or anything!

Mine was drawn out over night and then placed sudo cream to heal the rest!

Not sure if its widely available! I think its commonly used to take down swelling in race horses so you may actually find it in a vet store! True story!

Just thought id share as didnt see it on the site!
