Cystic Acne

Recommended Posts

I never had a problem with acne before, but on my 28th birthday, I woke up to the largest cyst full of puss that I've ever seen.  Wouldn't come to a head in 5 days.  Was told by my boss to get it checked out who was more concerned than I was.  I saw the dermatologist and they said they won't cut into it since it's too early.  They gave me antibiotics and said if it doesn't improve in a month, then come back to look at other options like opening/draining etc.  Anyone had a similar story?  Did it go away on its own?
