Re: Cysts
Jul 23, 2001
Whatever you do, dont pick at it or play with it. You may end up with a scar if you do pick it. cysts are way too tender and sensitive. I have just almost gotten over a cyst on my chin, and when I say a cyst, I mean a cyst not a pimple or a whitehead although it did come to a head and ooze out on its own.(sorry it sounds so gross, but it is!)

Anyway, It has almost healed right down in a week by taking 60-70mg of zinc (elemental that is),I try and take it on an empty stomach, eating RAW garlic everyday for the past week,(see my response to brianT (I really smell lovely,not! my husband says phew your breath, but raw parsley can fix that!)I would rather have a bit of bad breath that can be fixed than a cyst anyday.!!!(You can try the garlic pearls if you dont want to eat the raw garlic but it has to be the one that hasnt been altered to get rid of the lovely garlic smell,not!!!I havent tried the garlic pearls only the raw garlic so I cant tell you if it will work as well. Can you also try and get some over the counter acne medication ask your local pharmacist? KimmieCat mentioned zinc oxide ointment with a band aid sounds really good.

Also icing the cyst in the early stages can really help the bump not get any bigger. I am not eating any dairy except low fat yoghurt,and definitely no red meat which caused my cystic breakout.
