Hydrocortisone didnt help my cyst at all, what now?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Someone on the boards here suggested buying OTC hydrocortisone to help get rid of a cyst. Well I tried it, putting it on the cyst twice a day for a week and it looks like it hasnt helped at all. This is a really weird one that isnt red at all and it doesnt stick up very much but its definitely under the skin. Can anyone offer suggestions for this kind of cyst?

Thanx for letting me know about this. I have the biggest cyst yet in my history of acne on my right upper cheek now and a head is coming soon. I still wont break it but I will hope for it to break on its own and leak. What I do is at night I do the wash cloth/microwave method. Im sure you know about it. It really softens up cysts especially. They either break open and go away or they soften and become less irritated and go away faster. I didnt do it now for nights thats why I still have this cyst. Try it tonight. Good luck

umm hydrocortizone only works on cyst that are not under the skin but have surfaced out on the skin and very inflammed. I recommend getting the doctor to go for the injected kind since its under the skin.
