Ive got a cyst by my eye that hasnt got away! Help!

Recommended Posts

Ive got a cyst by my eye that hasnt gone away and its been 3 weeks now. Its gone down in redness a bunch, but only a little in size and is still totally recognizable. Should I get a cortizone shot or will that just leave me scared? Its taken all my will power not to just pop it. Should I pop it? Not really sure what to do...

I had this exact same problem but with one on my forehead, I used hydrocortisone 1% cream on it and that's the only thing that seemed drastically reduce its size, though I'm not sure it would be good to use hydrocortisone cream around your eye! I guess it depends how close the spot is to your actual eye?

Cystic acne almost always scars if the lesions are left on your skin for too long, so if you can, get that cortisone shot =)
