Tips For A Cyst?

Recommended Posts

So I've had this cyst type pimple near where my nose meets my face. It's pretty big and been there for about 5 days. It seemed to go down a little after day 2, but then started to rise up again. I've been applying BP (quinoderm 10%) pretty liberally and being gentle with it, and a lot of the redness has gone down, but now it looks as though it's coming to a head, do I think about trying to pop it? Or just carry on with what I'm doing?

Don't pop it. I know the temptation is hard to resist, but just like a splinter is pushed from your body when it's ready to come out, so a cyst is pushed out and healed up all by itself, naturally. I use BP also and it usually keeps it from spreading and/or swelling to an incredible size. Also, I drink a gallon of water every day when I get a cyst, it seems to help push it up faster. I really couldn't tell you why it works...it just does. O.o
