Are you one of us Fluffy?
I believe cysts are the ones that may need removal by dr or they keep coming back like Christmas. Warm flannels are also your friend.

Kinda, I get to deal with pus at work so I'm a bit meh about it but the cyst is getting redder & irregularly shaped like the last one so I want it out.

I have Epsom salts too for hot compresses.

Nothing this morning. Still a bit red and achy but no head.

Hot compresses with Epsom salts it is then.

It came to a head on Friday, I've been draining it over the weekend and I'm down to the lumpy white stuff.

I've had to bleach the bed sheets hmm

And you haven't filmed all this?? Shame on you! Sporner threads MUST HAVE PICS!

sorry about your sheets hope they cleaned up ok

It wasn't very satisfying, the last one exploded 3ft. This one oozes out but no explosions.

I've put dry iodine spray on it now.
