He was coming at me with a spray can. I can remember years and years ago - maybe I was 14? I had a couple of warts on my hands (nice!) and I thought that's the sort of thing they used to get rid of them. I'm not sure, I read someone's account who said it literally freeze burns your skin, so I've decided to look into it further before I leap. I'm so desperate to get this thing off my face, it looks like a discolored spot to the average onlooker but in reality its still a cyst. EIGHT MONTHS. What a nightmare. I hate the blasted thing.
: Is that the stuff that's cold and has something "steamy" looking coming out of it, like dry ice? Doctors used to use that all over my face, and I do think that it helped. I had a bump for months and after he used that on it, the stuff inside came out on its own in a couple of days. I think it's helpful, if it's what I think it is. They used to take a pad out of a container with a pair of tongs and wipe it over my face. Is that it?
