Best way to shrink a slow healing cyst

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have a slow healing cyst, and I was looking for a way to shrink it.

(The derm is too busy to get in for a cortisone shot)

It is about 1 month or older....Still just lingering. 

I've tried a crushed aspirin mixture with a only a tiny bit of success.
I put some hydro cortisone on it.
I put benzoyl peroxide on it.

Any tips? My previous remedies didn't quite do the trick.

I have not. I guess it's worth a shot...Though, I don't want it to come to a head. Then I would have to go through the messy process of manual draining.
