Acne cyst - surgical removal help

Recommended Posts

Hi all - I've had a cyst on my chin that I've had injected at least 5 times, and it continues to return. I saw a plastic surgeon about it last week, and he said that the shell/sac has been broken, so he can't do a clean extraction. He could try to open it up, scrape out the inflamed gunk in there, but that it might still return.  What would you all do? I don't want to make this any worse by adding a scar on top of things, but I'm not sure that I trust it will go away on its own. I've done antibiotics, creams, etc. It's just stubborn, and swells up to about the size of a quarter. It will drain a bit, but never goes away.
