  • Cystic Acne

    This past week a form of cystic acne appeared on my right armpit. Its reddish and irritating. To the point that I felt a burning sensation down my arm and side of my breast. Sometimes at night I would feel a numbingness on my hand. Not sure if its normal or bad thing.
    I tried using home remedies like a warm washcloth and 2 other ones I found on youtube such as:


    Unfortunately, the cyst didnt burst so Im planning on seeing a doctor this weekend and hope to either get some antibiotics or have it removed. I hope its with general anesthesia and not local since I'm weak and squimish.

    Has anyone experience this issues and what did you do?

    I post some pics so you can see what Im talking about. ************************************************************************************************Wa rning its graphic************************************************************************************** **********
