[QUOTE=dan325;3383945]Have any of your ever had a lymph node tender due to infected cystic acne? I have a very small tender one on the same side that my acne is on. I've been trying to pop the cystic acne etc., and I'm sure that hasn't helped! I started my tetracycline that I Have for it, but I think I'm becoming immune to it.[/QUOTE]
My dermatologist told me to use a hot compress to reduce the swelling etc. DO NOT SQUEEZE...honestly it makes it alot worse. Use a white washcloth and soak it in tap water and then microwave the washcloth..try for 1 minute first and see if it keeps the washcloth hot for a while, if not try 1 1/2 mins etc. Put the hot cloth to the cystic acne and keep it there using a little bit of pressure. When the washcloth isnt hot anymore go over the same it for as long as you want, it wont hurt and it can only help. Do it for a couple of days at night and it should help.
