    I have noticed also. Maybe it is because the skin on your face is thinner. I am not sure....just a idea.

    I think because there are more blood vessles on your face then anywhere else. so the wounds on your face heal faster than anywhere else

    Hi I have the same problem, I had a pimple on my neck and it went away, now I am left with a huge cyst, it has been a over a month now. My dermatologist says to leave it and it should go away on it's own, but it has been a long time now. I have decided to give it three more weeks, if not I will try a cortizone injection, because I not if I have it removed it will leave a scar. I am learning to have patience with it.
