Iceing Vs Heating A Cyst?

Recommended Posts

Its not quite a cyst yet but its a bump on my nose, i'v had this bump several times and it always turns into this big red cyst.. my mom says heat it so it comes out faster and goes away quicker, but the sticky says use ice to get rid of it.

I would like some info based on acutal experince not just what the sticky says..

I always ice my cysts, reducing their lifespan considerably. Reduces chance of scarring, also sometimes makes them come to a head. Heat is used for a pimple to make it come to a head, also used to make the cyst not get bigger. So both are good to use, but ice is my preferred method.

Not to be a downer, but honestly I think either is a complete waste of time. Have not noticed a whit of difference doing either.
