Anyone else ever get a cyst ? I have one on the back of my leg right below my buttocks :(. I got one about 8 months ago on the opposite side of my leg as well. Have never had problems with acne or anything and like to think I have pretty good hygeine. Anyone ever get these things ? I hate em :(.

You can be the cleanest person in the world and still get one or two or more.

Yep. I'm having one removed next week in fact. :lol: Also it has nothing to do with acne or hygiene.

I had one in the back of my head, one on my forehead and I have one in my mouth that won't go away. They just came out of NOWHERE. Good thing the two on my head went away. They should go away TC for some reason the one in my mouth won't go away! :?

It's just one of those things, nothing to worry about. Show it to your doctor and he'll help you out

you can get them from acne and you can get acne from poor hygiene so to say you're 99% wrong is only nearly correct

A cyst is essentially a bag of puss under your skin. It is not acne nor a zit. Also, you can have the best hygiene in the world and still get them, so nothing I said was wrong.

That's different. Cystic acne is cystic acne. I'm literally having a cyst cut out of my body tomorrow. I know what they are.

In grammar, cystic acne is NOT cysts but an acne that has visual properties of a cyst. Also, if we wanted to refer to acnes, we would've just said acnes, not cysts. The latter is usually referred to something that's happening deeper into the skin unlike the common acne.

Right, but an regular cyst, which I'm going to assume the TC is referring to as they are much more common, is like a hard ball under the skin. They typically have to be cut out and removed. Word of advice though, lay off on the snotty 99% wrong gig unless you know what a cyst typically is. ;)

well you said a cyst is a bag of puss when apparently a collection of pus is called an abscess, not a cyst acne cyst are cysts all the same as any other, so dont wink at me, cowboy

No an acne cyst is not the same as a regular cyst. Acne is within the sin. Cysts are a ball under the skin. Acne cysts and regular cysts both involve puss but they are very different.

I have a pretty big one on my back that comes and goes. Once it became infected and blew up to the size of a walnut and any contact with it was painful as fvck. That was a crappy time. But I got it drained and now it has remained more or less flat for the past few years.
