I'm a little discouraged by the amount of cysts I've been getting lately... I have two near my eyes (OUCH!) and a HUGE MOTHER cyst next to my nose (it looks like a second nose). I've gotten the one next to my nose injected, and I would get it injected again, but my derm's next available appt is Dec 20 (I'm thinking it'll be gone by then, but who knows...)
Is there anything I can do at home to at least get it to be smaller? Does ice help? or heat? Is it possible to open it up somehow (sorry... nasty, I know)? Also, the skin over it is wicked dry, flaky, and peeling like mad, and moisturizer doesn't help it... I've been peeling the flaky skin as much as possible, I bet I could conceal it better if the skin wasn't peeling... is there any trick to get rid of the flaky skin? HELP HELP HELP!
