Maybe you can answer some questions for me..
I've read about what cysts are and how they're a pain in the neck to get rid of..but the dermatologist can drain them or inject some kind of lotion, etc.

But... how do you know if you're ready to get them drained? Does it have a certain feel? Is it better to go to the derm as soon as you get a cyst, or after you've had it for a while?

Can you squeeze a cyst and have fluid or pus come out, or do you have to wait for it to shrink away on its own?

Should you put ice on it or hot compresses? (because I've heard of both)

And finally, how long do they usually last..and what are some signs that it might be going away or healing...?

Thanks for any info you all can provide.
