Does Anyone Know How To Prevent This From Getting Inflamed

Recommended Posts

Basically I've been on dans regimen for almost 4 months now and it's helped clear me out but doesn't prevent cysts from developing.

I notice I have this small whitehead on my left cheek and I could already tell its going to form into a cyst. That's how my cyst begin . Small and then they enlarge and become painful. So my question is how do I prevent this sucker from running its course ? Should I extract it with the extraction tool ? And dab BP? This is really getting me anxious . I don't want it to form into a cyst a couple days before valentines day :(

Please I need your input :)

Hey AbyBar... I say try dabbing some AHA on it for now... If you can extract without damaging your skin, then do so... I get cysts on rare occasions, but when I do, I steam in the shower and try to extract once I get out... Then I slather on the AHA and BP... :)

go to a derm that does extractions.

I guess I should have said that Im on a strict budget on my post haha .

Unfortunately, I don't have insurance or money in my pocket for that. They usually charge about $70 where I go :/

Will do! Just remember to not force it... If you steam and it doesn't want to budge the first time, don't try again until the next night... You'll cause further bruising and risk a worse infection if you try to go at it too hard... If you have AHA on hand now, I'd say dab on now and again once you do the regimen again... Just keep on apply AHA every time you do the regimen and that will help bring the cyst to a head, making extraction much easier... Good luck!

If i have cyst that is in a place that i cant ignore ill use a hot compress (damp cloth as hot as i can stand) and just keep holding that on it for as long as i can, this usually brings them to a head, i guess it works in the same way as a hot shower but i like to do this as well - it helps to drain them from the inside too. Good luck and be careful!
