Hey guys! Today I found a raised, dime-sized bump forming under the skin on my chin. It doesn't have a head or color but it hurts a little. What is it and what should I do about it? Thanks!

Sadly..theres not much you can do. Cysts will take a while to go away, usually weeks to months, but you can get a shot from your dermatologist if it gets really painful. Just apply BP to it, and make sure that area doesnt get to dry.

if it is taking a while to go away and starts to hurt or you get self-conscious about it , you should get a cortisone shot. $20 from your derm. it only hurts for a second and it will go away in about a day. i think its definitely worth it. if you decide to do it though make sure your dr. dilutes the cortisone or only uses a little bit so you dont get an indent.
