Hi,

So roughly a week ago the right side of my nose was a little tender and in the last few days a cyst has developed - there is a slight head on it but I have never had a cyst before. I have absolutely no idea what to do and I can't bear the thought of anyone seeing. However, I read online that some cysts can last months! What should I do?

Thanks

    See a plastic surgeon for removal. Best way to Go! Cysts are very deep and leave huge scars if not removed by a plastic surgeon. I had one on my cheek and found a great plastic surgeon you can't even see where it was.

      No age limit. And the cost depends on many things. Ask for a appt and just get it done. You Weill be glad you did they just get bigger and bigger. Get it done now before it really becomes complicated.,

    Reece,at your age you could be developing acne. Do you have a greasy skin? Any other red spots on cheeks or forehead?.   Whatever you do dont finger or squeeze this cyst or you could have a scar or spread the infection..    Keep your face very clean but dont scrub or it could become sore. A flannel soaked in hot water and put on your nose like a hot compress could help it to come to a head and discharge.

    If you get many like this you may need antibiotics to get rid of an underlying infection.
