Fastest way to treat a cyst?

Hey everyone,

I believe I have a cyst developing...does anyone know of an effective treatment? It's Sunday night right now, and by Friday morning I have my college graduation. Is there any way that I can get it clear by that time?

Salicylic Acid does help on the spot, a concentration higher than 3%. You have to use it on the spot (like an aspirin mask).

If it is under the skin, and is pretty small then ice helps + some clindamycine on the top.

Since you can use makeout, BP might be helpful as well.

The best is just to go to your derm's office...they'll have other ways to help.

Cortisone injection (effective) or ice (mildly effective). Topicals have never seemed to help existing cysts, only preventing them.
