Caring for Cysts

Many people suffer from acne, and some types of acne can be more serious than others.  For instance, cysts are usually considered moderate to severe forms of acne.  Here are some tips for caring for cysts.

Cysts are different than normal white heads or black heads.  White heads and black heads are hair follicles that become clogged with sebum which is an oily substance that bacteria feed off of.  White heads are completely clogged follicles filled with sebum, bacteria and dead skin.

Black heads are semi clogged pimples clogged with sebum, bacteria and dead skin.  The black head does not come from dirt as most people think, but rather pigmentation.

Cysts are infected nodules or pimples underneath the skin.  Cysts are infected with bacteria and should not be squeezed or popped as normally is the case with white heads and black heads.  When caring for cysts you should avoid pressure to the area.

Popping a cyst can cause pain, and infection to other areas underneath the skin.  Most cysts are usually 5mm or larger.  If your cyst continues to increase in size or does not dissipate, you should consult with a pharmacist or dermatologist. 

Caring for cysts can include taking topical solutions for cystic acne.  Usually your pharmacist or dermatologist can provide you with a product or refer a product for you.

Many people also consume specific vitamins that can decrease the prevalence of cysts in the face.  For more information regarding caring for cysts, consult with your dermatologist or pharmacist.
