I only get the big fat painfull zits. Man they hurt. The thing is I only get one at a time. But these things are huge and painfull. What kind of medicine should I seek to get rid of these puss bags?

Your dermatologist can pop them with a special needle, it's practically painless, leaves no scarring and makes your zit heal the next day. They do this to me all the time, I love it.

You mean cortisone injections, there's a risk of possibly getting an icepick scar from it but from what I hear it heals up pretty fast.

If you go to your dermatoligist they can prescribe you zithromax that kills bacteria, and then it will slowly get rid of the cysts

I don't prefer to go get a shot everytime an under the skin pimple pops up. If I catch it early I apply Neutrogena On The Spot Treatment (2.5% BP) 2x a day and all but one time this has healed the zit in 2 days. Last week I had a huge one on my chin and for the first time the BP didn't work so Friday I purchased Regenerist and put that on over the weekend by Monday it was not swollen, and barely visible. The Regenerist helped eliminate the redness.

Give that a try. I saw some cortizone shots go bad .. my friend had a very bad reaction to one and she looked horrible.

Good luck either way.

Don't get cortisone injections--they will leave huge dents on your face that may be permanent.

Soaking the cyst 3-5 times a day with a hot compress will help it come to the surface and break.
