  1. I've had this cyst that is about an inch below my jawline on my neck for about four weeks now. I ice it every night. It isn't huge (about the size of the top of a pencil eraser) but it is red and it raised a little and it is there and it pisses me off - ha ha!! Other than that my face is clear. My GP over the phone prescribed me a course of Eryrothomycin (10 days/1000 milligrams) and gave me a refill if I needed it. Has anybody heard of going on an antibiotic for an existing cyst and will i
  2. So I have this cyst about an inch lower than my jaw on my neck and it's driving me crazy. It started off as feeling like a small marble under the skin and it is raised from the top of the skin as well. Now it's red and the surface above the skin is about the size of the head of a penci eraser. I have been icing it every night and I'm not sure that it helps but it's not hurting it. Before when I get these I would peel off the top layer every other day or so until it was flat but this one is n
  3. Uggh, I'm so aggravated. Last Tuesday morning I had a late appointment so I had plenty of time to shower, relax, have my coffee, etc. Well, I showered and because I take a hot shower I usually sit and have my coffee or whatever and let my face rest since it's usually red from the hot shower. Well, this day I looked in the mirror and then for some odd reason I tried putting on my makeup then. Well, I had a couple of little things on my face that morning - - nothing too significant, but it was
  4. I just had a cyst injected yesterday. It does not look all that different today to me which is a little disappointing. I guess I was looking for miracles! It went down a little maybe but not all that much. How long typically does the medicine take to work? Donna
  5. Hi Everybody! Well, I finally bit the bullet and went to get an injection. I say finally because I always knew it was available but was deathly afraid of going! After reading tons of posts on this board (thank you everybody!!) I said lets try it! I called two different dermatologists that I use this morning and was able to get in with both of them today (what are the chances of that???!!). I did make an appointment with the older gentlemen because I felt that he probably had more experience w
  6. Hi Socially Inept I went to my dermatologist the other day because I was going to have smoothbeam laser on just one cyst that I was getting. I did not end up having the treatment but he did tell me that his sister has the deep kind of cysts that you seem to have and she had smoothbeam laser and it is working for her. I guess it is supposed to reduce the size of the sebacceous glands. It may be something to look into.
  7. There is no scarring just this bloody "brownness" which is making me crazy! I have been putting 4% hydroquinione on it too but I don''t think I am seeing much of a change and I have been using it for just over a week. I know that isn't a long time with the hydroquinione but I am a mess over this (and very impatient!) Thanks for your help!
  8. Hi Everybody. Boy and I depressed. I had one cystic breakout on my jawline and this cyst is the kind that just stays red and doesn't pop or anything. Well it has been four weeks and although it has gone done it has left a huge hyperpigmentation spot in that whole area. I mean almost the size of a half dollar! It is awful - it is brown and very hard to cover right on my jawline! I am thinking of getting just that area dermabrasioned. Would that help with the hyperpigmentation? Thanks
  9. Hi Everybody. I had a small cyst on my neck six weeks ago. There is still a red/brown mark there that is absolutely driving me crazy. It is not big but it is still irritating to look at every day. I went to a Dermalite center and the nurse said she would microdermabrate the area to get rid of the dead skin (probably about a one inch area) and then use a light after that to kill the pigmentation. She said I would probably have to have two to three treatments and it would cost $250.00 and the
  10. Hi Everybody. I know this is actually not a scar but I know all you "experts" on different lasers may know the answer to my question. I went to the derm last week for a cyst that was already on my jawline for one week. He gave me Duac gel which I have been putting on the cyst twice a day and I ice the cyst everynight. It has been another week (so a total of two weeks) and the cyst is still there - obviously a little smaller but still. I called the derm today and he said that he didn't reall

  12. Hi Girls - My question is not directly related to Spiro but here goes. I ama on my fourth month of Diane. During the "off week" of taking the pills (a couple of weeks ago) I developed a huge cyst on my jawline. I am so upset about this and I know that a lot of you girls are experiencing cysts so I wanted to know what you put on them. The are the kind that looks like a pea under the skin and are red but do not pop and do not come to a head - very annoying!!!! Does anybody else experience thes
  13. Hi Everyone. I have a question. About 5 weeks ago I had what looked like a small whitehead on my neck (about an inch below my jawline). I left it alone and it turned into a good size red inflammed pimple/cyst?? I don't know what it turned into because it never came to a head to pop and it did lessen in size and color but a small bump is still under the skin and now it looks like a scab. I typically do not get the red marks that people complain about here but I get a dark brown spot that will
  14. Hi everybody. What do you put on your cysts after you get them. I have one on my jawline that is really upsetting me!! It has been two weeks and it has gone down but it is still there and red. It is not the kind that can pop it is just a red inflamed hard bump. I went to the dermatologist who gave me Duac gel but to be honest I don't think it is doing a thing. I put ice on it everynight for a good long while and I do think that is why it is going down but what else to all of you "experts" d
  15. I also have gone on Diane for a second time in the past four months. The first time I was on Diane I was on for 5 years and my skin was great. I switched to another pill and that really messed up my hormones and skin and I am paying for it - I wish I never got off Diane!! In any event, it has been four months on Diane this time and although my skin in relatively clear I did just get a cyst last month (what the heck!!!!!) It is so upsetting because it is the kind that doesn't head and takes abo
