Common Questions and Answers about Chest acne cyst


Avatar n tn hi i am 29 now. before 4 years i got a small acne on my chest and it became big now it is like a overgrowth on skin, now it is 4cm long and 3 cm wide. doctor suggested to get operated.
Avatar m tn I was on the drug to cure my stubborn and cystic acne on my face, chest and back. I had no problems with my scalp before taking the drug. After I got off of the drug i started to notice some hair shedding and little pimples on my scalp. They would usually go away within a day or two. I’ve had a couple breakouts but nothing serious. About three months ago I developed a cyst like pimple on my scalp and it eventually went away on its own a month after it formed.
Avatar n tn my 15 yr old daughter came to me with a cyst on her chest it had a head on it and she squeezed pus out. It is on the breast tissue. We went to the dermatologist and he injected it with steriod. It seemed to shrink but then filled up again. While it does not look bad for the outside the cyst seems to extend very deep. He said he eill inject it again and if this does not work referr us to a plastic surgeon for removal. I had had cysts in my breast and my mother had breast cancer at age 39.
Avatar m tn Hello, These can be back and shoulder acne. Back and shoulder acne are quite difficult to treat compared to acne on other parts of the body. Thoroughly wash your body everyday, especially the back and shoulder part using a back brush and frequently change your bed sheet, as it is conducive for bacterial growth. Engage in a diet that is low in sugar and fat but is rich in vitamins. This prevents acne by preventing the buildup of excess oil on the skin.
606518 tn?1221344850 I have no idea if there is any creme or ointment for this or if this itself is a cyst or even a tumor. I also have another one that I did not pop and it is the size of a mini pea. Thank You, Jeff.
Avatar f tn I am looking for help in regards to my 13 year old daughter. She has severe cystic acne for the past 7 months. The cystic acne was just beginning late last year in 2013. The oral antibiotics were of no further help so we started Accutane in Dec 2013. She had the terrible initial flare but it has not stopped!! She started out on Accutane 30mg twice a day and then bumped up to 40mg twice a day. Then dropped to 40mg once a day. She weighs about 155lbs.
Avatar n tn Hello, It can be a sebaceous cyst. A sebaceous cyst may occur anywhere on body but scalp, ears, back, face, and upper arm, are common sites for sebaceous cysts. Blocked sebaceous glands, swollen hair follicles and excessive testosterone production will cause such cysts. Generally no treatment is required but they become painful then it means they are infected, then surgical excision by traditional wide excision, minimal excision, and punch biopsy excision may be required. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn Stanb is right. This is not acne vulgaris which occurs on the face, chest and back due to the oil glands present there. Do speak to your doctor. If you are told these are harmless cysts that cannot easily be removed, don't panic-all men look different down below.
Avatar f tn Sometimes it's nearly as bad as it used to be and it is very uncomfortable. It's also frustrating as after nearly 7 years of trying to rid the acne it's returned! The doctor is looking to refer me back to the dermatoligist, only I am worried that they will be unwilling to provide treatment as for a lot of the time it probably isn't as bad.
Avatar m tn I am 28 years old and recently developed pretty severe acne on my face and chest. Since I've never had to deal with this before I am at a complete loss at what to do and am feeling absolutely horrible about myself. I work out regularly, wash my face twice daily with a transparent, light soap, I eat healthy and don't wear a lot of makeup. I drink a ton of water and don't touch my face, I also don't let my hair touch my face.
Avatar n tn It was on my face, chest, back, and butt! My doctor told me I could use St.Ive's Medicated acne scrub. I think it worked a little. I am awaiting either AF or a positive HPT right now. ...and guess what is on my back right now. I hope this is a sign. Oh, and I had a girl with my first!
Avatar m tn While i've been in this relationship i've also experienced boils under my penis shaft that had hair follicles, sebaceous cyst on my scrotum and acne on my shaft (always on the top sides the ones that i pop always have a hair follicle in them or a hard pus like that of a fordyce spot). Also alot of these things have left scars on my skin. Also when these are popped they are red like acne, leave a small crater where the acne or puss was and take a few days to heal.
Avatar n tn However since you have acne, it could be a larger one. It could be an acne cyst (deep pimple) or a pustule. The pus in cysts and pustules is generally sterile and does not contain bacteria. Thus it can be there as it is for a long period of time. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn It can also cause secondary infection, delayed healing time and even scarring. Acne occurs on oil-rich areas of skin such as the face, back and chest. What you describe does not sound like acne. Repost this in the Dermatology Forum. Best Wishes, Eloise.
Avatar n tn Well it really is working. It does not get rid of the big cyst type acne but it is keeping his face clear of regular acne blemishes. Its important to use it everyday to keep the alkaline ph level but I really think the ACV is great.
Avatar n tn I am not sure how much of these are true but since I went through a strict diet to reduce weight (30lbs) two years ago, I got rid of most of my acne problems (on face, back, chest,and arms)- What a nice surprise! - My diet now consists of mostly vegetable and fruits with little meat and starch. Here are the items that I no longer consume: fried stuff, fat, sugar, and others high calories things (i.e. donuts, cakes). I also drink 3 liter of plain water/day.
Avatar n tn I am a 27 y/o female and have had abnormal hair growth on my stomach and chin area the past few years. Also I have suffered from many pimples/acne on my face and other areas Are these related to some hormonal imbalance and what can be done about them?? One other thing is that for around 5 or so years now I have had large pimple like growths under my arms that eventually burst containing a puss like substance and blood. After they have healed they leave scarring.
Avatar m tn Hi, so recently I took a trip to a warm destination and on the plane ride there I noticed a cyst on my chest in my chest hair. On the second day there I popped the cyst, then two days later after being out in the heat I noticed I had several pimples on my back shoulders and chest. I have sensitive skin so it is not surprising for me to have acne...although I don't get much on my body anymore. About 6 weeks before this I did have unprotected sex with a girl of unknown status....
Avatar m tn I would put a scar cream on it. It is sold over the counter. Mederma. Or if it is still an active acne cyst, maybe putting tea tree oil on it would help.
299940 tn?1192322967 I went to my PC and he said they did see a cyst in my sinus cavity. I knew it was there because of prior scans, but was told it was not a big deal. He said I sould see an ENT. I did last year and was told to use nose sprays to dry it up which did not work. Now the cyst is severe and takes up my entire left sinus cavity. I want to take all my scans to my ENT (which I have an appt with next week) and say I am miserable and here is why when can you remove this?!
Avatar n tn I have had a small bump on my chest now for around 3 weeks. I would say that in terms of size it is around the size of the ball in a ball point pen. It is not swollen, though some days it has a little bit of redness which is typically on days that it has been a little bit itchy, likely with the redness resulting from my scratching it (I try not to, but it happens). The bump is not painful, and causes me no problems, except for the occasional itching.
Avatar n tn Ren May will thus carry Damp and Heat to the face, while Chong Mai might disperse this pathogen over the chest and upper back.2 In western medicine too, the pathogenesis of acne is understood mainly in terms of an imbalance of hormones.3 Acne begins at puberty when the increase of androgens causes a corresponding increase in the size and activity of the pilosebaceous glands. The pilosebaceous follicle becomes blocked and leads to the formation of the comedo acnes.
Avatar f tn When I went in for menorrhagia and related symptoms, an intravaginal ultrasound shows I have a 5-6cm cyst with an enlarged right ovary. As treatment, they want to remove them; but the OBGYN refuses to do it laproscopically. He wants to do a full open vertical incision (not even transverse=bikini,) surgery! What the heck? The only reason he really gives for this is that he doesn't do them if he suspects cancer. A.
Avatar n tn They stated they didn't even know how to diagnose it, but called it acne and charged him $300. This was five months ago and it appears as a cyst still. Besides it being an annoying spot in the center of his forehead, it is sometimes painful. I have suggested that he see a dermatologist, but after his bill from the hospital, he's afraid to get the same dx. He has had these spots on his chest and head, but where it isn't so noticeable.
485259 tn?1519050626 I went into hospital for something entirely different last week and by accident, they found a huge cyst on my ovary. I am SO not wanting to be in patient so I am really hoping this is going to be laparascopic. They believe so now, but I have to find out more this week. Can any of you who have had this, tell me was there a point where they decided open vs. lap? What made them decide this for you?
Avatar m tn In the past 6months or so I have had this acne outbreak occurring on my upper chest, upper back and abdomen like red inflamed non itchy acne spots with no real whitehead. At the same time I have had a swelling of my left armpit that is painful and feels like possibly a cyst. The swelling usually goes down within a few days and the acne subsides within 1-2 weeks. I was traveling in the U.S when this first happened and it occurred a day or so after a very difficult hike where i was sweating ALOT.
