Question Huge pimple/cyst on top of nose HURTS like hell

I've got a huge cyst/pimple or whatever you call it on top of my nose. Never had it before. It hurts so bad that I can't even sleep. I have to take Advil just get some relief for a few hours. What should I do?

I have had that before. Its awful. Mine lasted for a month. THe only way I got rid of it was by going to the derm and he injected a cortizone shot in it. It left a mark which went away in a few months. I would suggest that, because its doubtful it will go on its own...And the nose is a very embarassing place to have one. Trust me! I know!!

Take some ADVIL.

Call the dermatologist asap.

Get some INJECTION/SHOTS on the cyst.

Apply BENZYL PEROXIDE on the newly injected pimple before bed for 2 nights.


It will flatten and go away after 48 hours!


The scar should remain for another 2-4 weeks.

Has it come to a head yet?

Don't pick at it. A nose is a horrible place to get it in the first place so don't pick and make it worse.

If you don't want to go to the derm quite yet.. here's a few things you can do to get rid of it at home. I just did these to get rid of a huge red nose cyst last week. It went away in 3 days on its own COMPLETELY.

-Rub benzyl peroxide on it(10% if your skin can handle it)several times a day
-Alternate bp with Neosporin/antibiotic CREME(make sure to check the zero zits list to see if your brand has anything aggravating in it)
-Take Ibuprofen for the swelling.

If this doesn't start taking the cyst down within a couple of days.. then I suggest going to the derm if you have the money/time. Good luck!!
