cysts -what to do?

I don't have acne problems, but I get cysts occassionally. They are very painful and swell up and then the red mark will stay on my face for months. Right now I've got one on my chin about the size of a dime, and 2 more on my chest. What do I do to treat them?

If you havenít been to a dermatologist, I would definitely do that first. If you only get them occasionally, you can get cortisone shots (steroid shots) into them and they will be gone within a week (the cysts not necessarily the red mark).

dabbing liquid tcp on them could help, but I would only do that before bed time as it smells bad

Try applying diluated apple cider vinegar and lemon juice on your face 2x a day. I'm doing this and the huge cyst on my chin is going down.
