to drain or not to drain the cyst

Recommended Posts

I've had this cyst under my skin for at least a month now, it isnt inflamed or red and its not painful but I feel the bump under my skin. I havent picked at it or anything but sometimes just like this afternoon the little black spot on the top (opening) randomly starts secreting the pus or sebum or whatever is inside( clear liquid ). Should I apply pressure to squeeze this thing out or just wipe off the clear liquid that came out and leave it alone ? Also is there anyway to clear up the left over black mark from a previous cyst left on my other cheek ?

If I were you, I wouldn't try to drain the cyst myself. Definitely see if you can get a cortisone injection for it. I've tried popping cysts on my own and only caused more problems...they'd get bigger, harder, redder...and more embarassing.
