I've had a cyst since March which has not gone away, I've had it injected 3 times. Its shrunken but still there. My dr wanted to use liquid nitrogen on it, he said it would swell a bit at first and then shrink more, that it helps exfoliate it. I declined & said if its still there in January I'll try it. I also have a LARGE hole scar underneath the cyst which makes me really concerned, I've broken out many times in the same spot & it has ruined the area. He said later I could have punch graft surgery to sew it up & that it would leave a line scar instead of the gaping hole.
To top it off, I'm breaking out again today so I'm not really very happy. I just wondered if anyone had tried the liquid nitrogen route, I don't know what else to do. Thanks.
