The beast is back :(

Recommended Posts

I have had a Huge cyst in the same exact spot for about 4 months. It flakes/recedes and comes back. its been happening for 4 months. Right now it is huge and enflamed with about 3 small white heads in the center.

This is in 2 other spots in my face too. I dont pick it and it comes back in the same spot after it recedes :(

any advice for making it go away?

I've been on accutane for 3 1/2 months with very little results i am hoping it works for me :pray:

Well, can you up your dosage? I know in the first month, I got some really tenacious cysts that wouldn't go away until my doc upped my dosage.

I hope you get it worked out, because I know how annoying that can be.

Pop it. If it returns, pops it. Once you pop a zit well, it will not return. When the cyst is ripe, give it a squeeze and makes sure you get out all of the infection. goodluck.

But wouldn't popping a zit leave a scar in its place? I'm afraid to pop anything on my face in fear of scars developing. I've both heard and read to never pop cystic acne.
