    Angry cysts and scabs

    I haven't had a cyst in a few years. Well, I got one last week and vowed not to touch it. I broke my vow and tried squeezing it the other night. Nothing came out. I tried again the next day and got some pus and blood out but it was still really swollen. Last night I tried again, got more gunk out and the swelling went down alot but the skin tore and now I have a hole that makeup sinks into and there is also what appears to be trapped blood so it is very red and purple and oozing. it's disgusting. I called in to work today but I don't think it's going to be any better tomorrow and I have to go so what can I do in the next 19 hours that will help?? Anything?? Part of me wants to squeeze it more to see if I can get the blood out but the other part says that is just going to make it worse. Any advice?

    a facialist once told me that if you've squeezed it, you might as well get everything out of it at once...rather than letting it heal, and then squeezing it again. i know its kinda hard sometimes though cause you dont want to end up with an indent :-\
