Lurking cyst and B5

Got this medium sized cyst on my jaw-line which has been lurking for several days now <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/eek.gif"> ... what do I put on it? Oxy 10 usually dries up any active spot I have on my face, but this one isn't budging - any suggestions?!

By the way, I am on 3grams of B5 a day now... I had worked myself up from 500mg. I have noticed that I am getting less cysts and my over all complexion is much ''healthier looking'' (for moi anyway <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> ) plus I don't have so much oil on my chin and t-zone areas... which is good. Seems like it is working <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Let's hope it stays that way - ::touches wood::. Must admit though, I find swallowing 12 pills a day a bit much <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dizzy.gif"> ... my health food store only sells 250mg bottles <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif"> - pffffft - but if the good results keep on coming, I don't care if I have to swallow 300 LOL. I have just been on it for a little under a month though, I believe I won't see the MASSIVE improvement until I am like in my 2nd or 3rd month? I hope everyone else who is taking B5 are having great results too <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Re: Lurking cyst and B5

I have just started on the B5 and think I am going to take the Flaxseed Oil too. I suffer from those darned pea sized lumps that just seem to last forever too!! And just when they start to go away, another one pops up somewhere else on my face. I hope you continue to have good results and I am hoping for the best for me too. OH! I am also taking Milk thistle 3x a day. Suppose to cleanse the liver of toxins. From all the stuff I have been reading, I guess toxins in our body can manifest themself thur acne. Anything is worth a try at this point. Goodluck to you...

Re: Lurking cyst and B5

I started the Flaxseed oil last week, my mum actually told me to keep the pot in the refrigerator to keep it fresh - so that may be something you would like to try too. I am also taking Evening Primrose Oil - this is meant to help hormones <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Yes it does seem like toxins in the body and hormones seem to nurture acne so to speak. I also drink at least 2 litres of water a day to help cleanse my body too.

I do remember a couple years ago I used to take all the vitamins under the sun, and thinking back, I didn't haven't many problems with my skin, had a few pimples but not much, then I let myself slip I guess and never bothered with the vitamins and now I think that is how my face blew up again, I stopped taking them for about a year...

Anyway, I am on a roll again <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Keep up us updated on how you get on with the B5 <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
