Pus-Filled Giant Cyst, POP IT???!??!?

Hey everybody,

Well this is the thing, I have this cyst and its huge and full of pus. I could feel it move around when you sorta touch it. It on the verge of exploding but not quite. Some people are telling me to pop it since the pus inside will harden? and develop into something worsE? It's been 2.5 weeks and its still there. Its not's changing at all, seems to be getting more and more pus. Should I pop it? If you leave it alone, where will all that pus go? Reabsorbed by your body? That's not too good. So maybe getting rid of the pus is the best way to go???

Thanks

I say pop it!!!

Make sure your hands are clean, use a tissue to squeeze and then disinfect with alcohol. Keep a tissue pressed to it if it leaks and disinfect again once leakins stops. Then use some antibacterial ointment on it.

Enjoy popping it buddy!

Remember to gently squeeze ... dont' spread infection!


Cysts coming to a head is rare, it's almost a novelty ... those are best for popping.

Take the advice given by the other posters. It's exactly what I would say. I do have something to add though. Do a REALLY hot compress directly on the cyst before popping. That will bring ALL the puss to the top (soften it even more too) and will decrease the chances of some puss getting back up and causing an infection. Good luck!

Re: Pus-Filled Giant Cyst, POP IT???!??!?

Are all cystic type acne filled with pus? I can't figure out this new forming acne on me. They are big undergrown things that take weeks to surface. White squirmy stuff comes out but not in one squeezing. Usually days later I have to go after it again. Then they take weeks to heal. Is this considered cystic, and if so, what is the best procedure for them. Leave them a lone and hope for the best, or try and get that crap out so it can heal?

Before you pop it!!! I've heard that it is better to use a sterilized needle to gently poke a little hole in the head first...this will allow all the gunk to come out easier and will lead to less bruising around the pimple. Good luck!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bouncing.gif">

I get them every week of my life to the point of applying for disability because of them.Also how big is the cyst? is it a painful one or not really. Does it have a weak spot or deep, also very important is it infected or not? Sorry to ask so many questions.
