Cysts and Scaring
I developed a cyst about two years ago. I had no idea what it was so made an appointment to see the dermatologist and he said that they were quite common and just to leave it alone. That was definitely good news but just last month, it broke. I won't go into detail about what happens when it breaks, but it was quite messy. (If you want to know, all you have to do is look it up. Every gory detail is there. ) Anyway, now I have scarring and it wasn't pretty but I did a bit of research until I found one old wive's tale that had been given to a patient by a doctor!! Nothing else had worked so she suggested trying this.
It involves hot salt water applied to the scarred area for twenty minutes twice a day. I have been applying the hot compress for about a week and I'm amazed at how well it is working. It's not completely gone, but it is a whole lot better than it was. And wouldn't you just know that it would be right under my collar bone, so I really need to get rid of it fast... especially in the summer when so much more skin is visible!
Anyway, wanted to pass the info along. :)
