Well I'm still lost on getting rid of cysts. I hate how they hurt. I've got a big one on my chin right now, and I'm trying what I can to just leave it alone b/c it hurts and is starting to turn a bit red.

I also think I might have somehow messed up. My back is breaking out with cysts, and it's slightly scarred, so I started using Stridex pads on my back and neck. I also started putting the retin a there to try to get the skin to start rejuvinating itself, and to try to get rid of some of the scars. I thought it was working well b/c from what I could feel the cysts were flattening out and going away. Then I looked at them in a mirror and it looks like I might have burned my skin. Not only is it tender, but the spots have turned dark, peely, and very obvious. They aren't raised, but they look more like sores. I'm worried that I permanently messed up my back. So today I skipped washing my back with the salycilic acid wash, and I only used regular antibacterial soap. I also used cetaphil moisturizer and a bit of neosporin cream to try to heal things up. Any suggestions on how to clear up back cysts and or the horrible effects of the stridex pads/retin a lethal combo?
