I think cyst appears like a big red lump and it hurts when you touch it

and pimple is a tiny dot and it doesnt seem to hurt when you touch it :D/

the way i understand it, pimple is a relatively small inflamation with pus that comes out in few days and cyst is a huge zit with some white-orangish shit inside and it dosent come out to the surface, so its unpoppable and can be on your face for months..

I have one of those but it doesnt hurt when i touch it. i've had it for over a month now and it seems like it'll be there for quite some time. sucks!

Sometimes after I've had a cyst, the lumb goes down slightly, and the redness and pain go away, but I still feel a little bump under the surface of the skin. This bump goes away after a month or so.
