  1. Did you ask about the cortisone shot? They can work magic on cysts. i'm scared of getting a cortisone shot, i read that it affected some people badly.....i just hesitate to get another silly product....would clinmydacin work? dont remember its name but something like that.....ugghgh, i'm so over all this I use Clindamycin and I dont really think it helps the cysts that I get. You could try it though. I have heard that cortisone shots left some people with indentations but that has nev

  3. its coming up to 8 weeks this thursday and the cyst on the corner of my mouth has not changed at all. I don't know why the doxycycline isn't working. I thought this doxycycline would work in this amount of time. don't know what to do?
  4. I got prescribed doxycycline 2 weeks and 2 days ago because of these 2 huge cysts i have on my face, i was also told to use BP 2.5% in the day and Differin at night. BUt my cysts are very nasty and red looking now and are exactly the same. I'm also getting small spots on the left side of my mouth, some are small white heads, the others are just tiny flat red spots...not pimples.....ughhhh.... i dont know what to do about them? should i put BP on them? or will that just make them more irritated
  5. MAybe i am being impatient, but i have been taking doxycycline for exactly 2 weeks now and the cysts are still exactly the same. How long does this take? I just feel a bit panicked, i dont want to waste time taking a medication that wont work. I want to give it a reasonable chance, but i want to know what time period is reasonable? Yeah i think the BP really irritated my skin, because now the cyst is very red and my skin is not looking that healthy. My derm told me to stop using it for a b
  6. I have been told by my dermatologist to apply BP to my forehead, cheeks and the 2 cysts that i have on my face. But the BP is really stinging my face, it doesn't hurt my forehead or cheeks, just around my mouth where my cysts are. When i wash the BP off, my skin is so dry and peeling, but only where i have applied it around my mouth and on my chin. But i moisturise after i use it all the time, so, i dont know why this is happening. I thought maybe i was allergic but my forehead and cheeks ha
  7. nah, icing doesnt work for me.... i think i'll just leave it alone...
  8. I was changing my top and i accidently jabbed my cyst with my thumbnail and it kills.....i can't believe this. Its bleeding slightly. Can i still put BP on it? it really kills, do i treat it like any other wound? Can i do my BP during the day and Differein at night regimen? goddamnit, i was trying to be so cautious...
  9. Hey u should book a derm appt with a private derm, u can get it in a few days. Did u book an appt at the out clinic in RPA?coz i know they told me i'd have to wait till august to get seen. If i was u i wouldnt waste time with diet and all that, just take roaccutane. MY mum did the diet waste of time thing with me, it didnt help me and i just dont think it was sustainable.
  10. My derm has put me on Doxycycline, just one pill in the morning, BP all over my face in the morning and Differin at night. She told me not to put the Differin on the cysts, but i did anyway and its really shrinking one of them and its really drying up. She told me to put the creams all over my face, because she found a few blackheads on my cheeks, and they could flare up...so i'm really glad i went. So far i still have 2 cysts, the one near my mouth is still so huge, it feels enormous. All
  11. @wynne, i did read that guide. i iced the cyst and it just damaged my skin, it hurt a lot too....my skin crusted over so i had a huge damn scab on my face, but that dropped off on monday but the cyst remains underneath.....unchanged by the ice, it looks nasty & red. I use tea tree oil every night on the 2 cysts, and i moisturise also, i usually never moisturize, but since these 2 cysts came up i've decided 2 be diligent. they dont really hurt, but i can feel them there. I have some copper
  12. I have 2 large cysts on my face, one near my nose, which i popped because it had a white head on it and the other on my chin near the corner of my mouth. NOw i just put tea tree oil on it, but all it does is dry the skin on top and then it peels off...this happened to me in january and it went away in 10days....but this seems to be a stayer... ..ugghh, my face is clear but these 2 big huge zits look awful.....what is the best topical cream i can use to get rid of it? i already tried benzoyl p
  13. can u be more specific? where exactly do they do this in sydney?
  14. OK, i have to admit due to all the stress of the breakup, i really have been eating hardly anything at all and this past week, i weigh only 49kgs. I'm not proud of it or anything. for a while now i only eat like half a sandwich a day...when i get upset i cant eat.... I have been drinking a fair bit of water, i always have my bottle with me.... i usually drink a lot of water, i'm a cyclist but i can't say i have been doing too much cycling in the past 2 weeks, hardly any at all...which is really
