Getting rid of big cystic bumps..

My back had been 90% clear and I only got small pimples every once in awhile but yesterday I found a huge cystic pimple (the semi-soft bump that eventually grows a whitehead) about 3/4 inch wide. It's red and it's growing and I think I see the place where the whitehead will form. It hurts like a mother and keeps getting bigger. Does anyone have an effective treatment against this? So far I've put 10% BP on it. Oh, I was on a roll too and this huge fool comes along. :(

I squeeze all the puss out, it works fine. Or u can go see a dermatologist and get a cortosone shot :)

I used to have real trouble with cysts on my back, just try your hardest to leave it alone and DO NOT squeeze it, you'll most definately leave a bigger scar and it will stay for longer.
