Hi there. I thought I had a painful pimple on my back so I squeezed it - very little pus came out, but then the next day it was huge and hard under the skin and now 2 days later it is VERY VERY painful. I know it has turned into a cyst.
I've read numerous googles on applying heat about 4 times a day for 20 min. until I can get to a dermatologist on Monday and am thinking they'll shoot it with corticosteroids??
Luckily I have some pain killers, but OMG does it hurt. It's very red, swollen and hard under the skin now with no signs of coming to a head or whatever.
Any suggestions? It's Saturday so I have 2 more days. I don't want to do anything wrong and don't feel urgent care would do much good at this point so I don't want to waste my money or time or have them turn it into something much worse.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
