So I had a cyst that I picked at so it turned into a scab. I put neosporin on it and after a few days the scab fell off and there is pink skin underneath where the scab was and it looks awful. So should I keep putting neosporin on it or leave it alone? Also how soon can I get a chemical peel? I dont know if I have to wait a while for this scar to heal a bit or not. I definitley learned a lesson to not pick at my cysts -ugh!

definitely wait until it is no longer an active wound. Ive been doing glycolic peel for about 3 weeks now and am becoming impatient with the lack of results ( ive done 5 peels) and yesterday I did not dilute the acid as much. I had 2 SMALL pimples that were scabs in the healing process and I woke up today and they were very irritated and red, so my guess is it is not very good for your skin to do with any kind of active sore.

hope I helped!
