Does a hot compress drain a cyst or get in reabsorbed by the body?

Recommended Posts

I've never had a cyst/zit come to a head that way, only just start draining.

Or it will just flatten it.

Ice rarely works :C And I feel like it when it does work a little, it helps with inflammation, not so so much with the actual problem of killing the cyst.

Also, I know a lot of people rather use ice, which I never really found to help all that much.

It's good for inflammation, but I just don't see how it helps with the problem. Today I'm doing both, just to see if it will help. Heat seems to shrink a cyst anyway, but I feel like it helps with what is inside the cyst while ice just helps with inflammation.
