hiya pal ive got the exact same problem,ive had a red cyst like lump on the left of my face for 2 weeks now,it started out as a bump under the skin and it just seemed to get bigger for 1 week,now 2 weeks later the swelling has gone down slightly but the area is still red and unfortunatley i dont have the answers you need my friend but you could try taking ibuprofen as this helps to reduce inflamation and it gets rid of the pain if you have any that is? If you do get any replies or any advice on how to git of rid of the cyst id love to hear from you and vice versa.
Best of luck mate

Luckily I have been cyst free for 2 weeks which is the longest period of the year. of course I'm bound to get one soon. I hate cysts because they take a WHOLE month to finally disappear and the red mark to at least fade a little bit. Most the time you deal with cysts for 2 weeks and then a red mark for 2 weeks...they really are the WORST kind of acne.

I suggest antibiotics for these along with Mint Julep or Tee Tree Oil, something that can really dry them up. I use Skinoren which helps a lot, but like we've said before it just cuts down on the amount, does not exhalt them.

A zinc supplement is the answer.
