Hey all I have had a cyst on my upper cheek for about 9 days now.... anyway -t doesnt hurt anymore but its looking kinda black in color nor and i see no head??? ugghh what do I dol? Stick a needle in, Cortisone Cream? BP whaat?
Hmmm, I had the very same thing happen to me. It started out as a weird bump that didn't really hurt. Then it got really inflamed and purple/red. I couldn't get it to go down, and then one night it started to turn black/purple. I then tried to pop it, and all that came out was a lot of blood.
I had it for about 2 months, and then finally, a whitehead emerged. I still have the scar from last year.
See if your derm can suggest something, b/c it was one of the worst I've had and I hated it.
I get these probably once a year but they last for so long. I have one on my cheek that's been here for 4 long, embarassing weeks. I was able to get a derm appointment for next week and I can deal with it til then (it's so tough to get one around here)....but I have a high school reunion coming up in 3 days! Ugh, if they could only postpone the reunion for another week. I'm lucky that my skin is otherwise clear.
Well, most of mine came out! I was washing my face last night and as I looked down to pick something up, I could feel something on my cheek. It just discharged on its own (mine usually last for no more than 4 weeks before it does this but I was convinced this would never go away). God, I can't even begin to tell you all how relieved I am that most of this is gone before my reunion. I never had bad skin in high school. Not until I graduated college did these cysts start appearing. Now for my question: I know these will come back on my face again because I just feel like it's inevitable (from past experience). What do your derms prescribe/recommend?
my derm prescribed my tetracycline, ( an antibotic)
it suppressed the zits. but when i stopped it, it jsut came back. it really bites..
the truth is, Benzyl peroxide and these antibotics doens't do anything, they only suppress it.
so now , i just wash my face with a cleaser, if i have zits , i jsut put on polysporin.. thats about it
and i watch what i eat..
do u know what is really good? have plain yogurt after every meal.. it really helps with the face
I was given a prescription for tetracycline almost 2 years ago but it made me nauseous all the time. It definitely cleared my skin up and I didn't have a massive cyst until this past month. Right now I'm using Apresia products and I really like them. What is polysporin and where can I get that? Thanks!
yeah i think i have digestive problems or somthing
but yogurt really saved the day.
it is really common, u can get it anywhere
just go to the grocery store or drug store and look under first aid, places where they put band aids
if u dun find it , just ask the clerk
POLYSPORIN IS REALLY GOOD!! the triple formula with added vitamin E
