How long do cysts last ???

Hi everyone, how long does a cyst tend to last ?? I have two on my face right now that have been here for four days now. I don't really want to pop them, I just want them to go away...

Any help would be appreciated...

Re: How long do cysts last ???

I've always found that applying a hot compress to them a few times a day helps them to subside more quickly. What I do, is I put a pot of water on the stove and heat it up (not to the point of boiling, but fairly hot... don't burn yourself). Then I dip a washcloth in and apply it for a few minutes, then dip it back in the water (to get it hot again), and so on, for about 10 minutes. Like I said, I do this a couple of times a day, and I think it really does help.

Good luck.
