When you say 'tender' does it mean it hurts? Mine doesn't hurt at all, just itches and now it doesn't even itch. Just wondering (if you are female) are you on any hormone therapy? i.e. Birth control. I would like to know your experiences if possible...I started OrthoCyclen 4 months ago and was wondering how long does it take for birth control to regulate your hormones.. my doc told me to quit so he can check my hormones in 2 months (I did some blood work 2 weeks ago, my estrogen is really low). My acne at the moment is neither worse or better (besides the maybe cyst) . I really don't know what to do. If I quit right now I would have wasted 4 months for nothing...

How does your cyst feel? is it a hard bump? or just a red mark?

thanks for reply...[/QUOTE]

Tender, like it hurts a tiny little bit and can feel its there - though its not painful.

Usually its slightly red but in certain lighting you can see its a big azz lump. Its usually feel like a hard small pea under the skin.

I'm not taking hormones but am on antibiotics. However, I've only found any improvement since I started eating well. Today I don't have a single pimple on my face and I plan to keep it that way.
