Shaving Cysts

2 posts in this topic


About few years ago I started getting these large boils on my face. It seemed like the

relation was soon after I would shave. Sometimes they hurt and get infected. At first

I thought it was ingrown hair. But the hair would never come out and the lump would

remain for weeks and shrink.

I went to a derm and they are labeling it as a acne cyst. I would have to get a cortisone shot to

clear the cyst. It happens about 4 times a year usually on my jawline and neck.

Any men out there have this problem? Very interested to hear others with the same problem.

strangely enough this was my problem, some what. im using "the cool fix" by shaveworks. I use it after i shave because i've always had these nodule like appearances a couple days after i shave. this has been working quite well while alternating with dans bp. it can be drying so dont use to much.
