Common Questions and Answers about What does an acne cyst look like


Avatar n tn Not sure when to go to a physician regarding what feels like a cyst. It WAS much bigger (tried popping what I thought was a zit about a month ago). It has gotten smaller (smaller than pea sized) and is located between my left side of my neck right under the middle of my jaw bone. It moves and appears to be between skin. It is not associated with my neck lymph nodes I don't believe. Are there any ways to differentiate acne, cysts and cancer? I am a 31 year old male.
Avatar n tn But yes i am a virgin and im not gay either so im assuming its just like regular acne cuz i work alot and it does get very sweaty down there.
Avatar n tn But, from what you have described, it doesn't sound like pimples or yeast because if it was one of these conditions, you would have felt some type of discomfort at some point during the years you say that you've noticed them. Also, while it is possible to get the odd pimple on your genitals, it is unlikey that you would encounter as many as you describe and for that long. That area of your body does not produce as much oil as say your face, chest or back.
Avatar m tn I am assuming sensitive but, acne prone and light/moderate acne. Then again, cystic acne isn't light nor is it moderate or is it? Its usually like one bad inflamed pimple. It clears up and then the cycle repeats itself. Its very damaging to myself esteem. I get anxiety over this. I am concerned about my work environment and other parts of my life being affected by it. I am doing my best to coop with everything going on.
Avatar n tn I went to the doctors today and got given a doctor who didnt seem to have a clue what she was doing, she said it felt like a cyst and to just go away leave it and see what happens! I thought after seeing a doctor it would make me feel better but it really hasnt, the lump is the size of about 2peas and is really uncomfy... can anyone help me?
Avatar m tn People who use minocycline typically have about 50% fewer pimples after 90 ***not this it did not look like this just ingrown hair bump under skin with harden texture not liquid*** http://howtogetridofgenitalwarts.org/std/bump/ Warts appear and disappear at various points of life. they disappear by themselves. Some however are quite painful and do also spread fast and many of them do stay on for years. These warts need to be treated.
Avatar f tn it does sound like you are pregnant. i have an ovarian cyst and i fopund out on the net that the symptoms are close to that of pregnancy (even swollen breast) i thought i might have been pregnant also but found the cyst in an ultrasound. i have also heard in rare cases that a hpt gives false positive. im not sure what the cost of an ultrasound or blood test but i would ask for one or both.
Avatar m tn An ANA test shows inflammation. You have to look at the actual test result and see the ratio, and if is it speckled, etc to see if it is for a particular disease. Surgical recovery does not take long. Hormonal recovery can take a lot longer - it depends on how sick you were before to a degree from what I have seen. I also have high ACTH - that indicates something wrong with the adrenals. Mine are gone and my ACTH secreting tumor has gone crazy so that is my issue.
4692121 tn?1358041997 It sounds like with your daughters situation the cyst grew so that it was close to the optic nerve/s and maybe the carotid arteries. That can be really serious. The blindness could have come from the Rathkes and/or surgery due to the optic nerve being damaged. I'm sorry that this happened. By symptomatic I just mean that it caused "symptoms". Many Rathkes people newer even know they have one because it never causes problems.

784916 tn?1237931021 I went from 140 pounds to 170 pounds in the last year and changed nothing at all in my life style as far as exercises or eating habits. Has anyone else ever had belly fat or weight gain from a cyst and does it go away after the cyst is removed?
Avatar m tn Ok, i saw the pic and it does look like a cystic pimple to me. It could have been initially caused by an ingrown hair and it looks like it got infected. Can you try applying some warm compress on it, to see if it causes a drainage? a cystic pimple will usually not drain this way, but should go away on its own.
Avatar f tn Once you have those results, you will know whether or not, you need to follow up with a doctor (does not have to be an endo). We can help you evaluate the test results, since not all results that fall in a normal range, are really normal, for the individual. Do you have any other symptoms of a thyroid condition? Here's one site I found that does link thyroid with acne: http://acne.about.com/b/2011/05/07/study-shows-link-between-thyroid-problems-and-adult-acne.
Avatar n tn i am going to see an endocrinologist and hopefully get some answeres
Avatar m tn 1) Is the information true? Maybe. But be careful what you read, and also put what you read in context. As for an "online article that stated that pimples in the genital area (not blisters or other lesions mistaken as pimples, but actual pimples) could be indicators of a number of STDs including herpes": Only rarely. People don't understand the entire business about atypical herpes. Here's how it works. Positive blood test for HSV-2 (surprise!).
Avatar n tn I go to have an ultrasound done on monday to see where the baby has planted itself. And to see what is instore for me then. Just tell your friend to use all the protection she can from getting pregnant, cause apparently, you can still get pregnant after an ablation. I was finished having my babies, thats why I had it done. I have 3 children.
Avatar f tn I'm not a doctor or nurse let me state that first. I get hard cyst like bumps on my neck, face and back ALOT. What sounds like is happening is you may have a staph infection. Don't freak out we already have staph on us all over our bodies every day or so I'm told. OK the mama in me is going to tell you to leave it alone but I'm sure you've heard that 1000x already. I don't take my own advice and you can probably relate when I say having acne is so annoying! Especially when you have a 3rd eye.
Avatar n tn Have done a full battery of tests but everything comes back clean. What I would like to ask is an important question from you'll. Try to think back to the approx time of your "infection" and see if either you had visited an hospital for some surgery or was in REAL close contact with someone who had been in a hospital. (By Close contact I mean, maybe sexual relationship or exchange of body fluids).
299940 tn?1192322967 My cheek, behind my eye, my teeth, it feels like it's all swollen. I went to another ENT and took my CT scan with me. He gave me an MRI, got a better look at the cyst and again said it's no big deal. Gave me some more meds, they don't help the pain they only put me to sleep, and told me to come back in 6 months for another MRI to see if it has grown. In the meantime, I'm crippled. I can't work, can't focus, memory is bad, gaining weight, and generally am a mess. I can't wait 6 months.
Avatar n tn It doesnt look to me like an ingrown. I am terrified of finding out it's an STD, but am with one man and have been for a while except for a 6 month break we took where we both slept with others. (He with the girl before he and I got back together this time, long past with us) and me a new partner. We haven't had a problem since this is monogomous Sept/Oct.
628735 tn?1273879377 then we spend the whole TWW hoping and praying never to see that witch again!!! Well, it doesn't look like we will be cycle buddies, but we will still be here for each other!
Avatar n tn Yes I believe that's what it is...the Bartholin cyst. I have an appt tomorrow evening to get it checked...sounds like I mine might be absessed...it's even bigger and it hurts. I'll probably have to have it drained...yikes!
Avatar f tn I don't know about anyone else, but I have had such a difficult time trying to find the right birth control pill. I need one that doesn't make me tired,cause weight gain, or acne. It seems like every pill I try-either it helps my acne and makes me hungry and sooooo...... tired. I am also on Vyvanse for ADHD and that decreases my appetite.
603463 tn?1220630455 The egg then goes on its merry way down the fallopian tube, while the follicle from which it was expelled becomes the corpus luteum cyst. This cyst too, like the follicle is visible on ultrasound, but has a very different appearance. ***In the second half of the cycle--also known as the Luteal Phase: The HYPOTHALAMUS is sending out pulses more slowly--it is producing a pulse of GnRH about every 2-3 hours. Again, this is signaling to the pituitary gland to produce LH.
Avatar f tn i also had this dream where i was driving n the roads where clean and there where plenty tress like what would be in the country..they wur beautiful they did not have any leaves but if i wave my hand as i passed them flowers and leaves appear on them oh man it was beautiful.ahhhhh..then i had anther dream iwas peeing and i kept missing the toilet my mom was there getting mad and she wascleaning it up for me.lol..
Avatar f tn Well, they of course have to have certain vaccines and whatnot, but he wasn't exposed to anything that I know of that could have caused this to happen to me. I figure it he would have been, he would be experiencing some sort of signs or symptoms as well.
Avatar m tn or well that's just the problem, i have no idea what it is. i cannot seem to find an image online that matches it. I had one on my inner thigh just like it before. This one is located on my pelvic area. It reaches deep into the skin, not pop-able really. When squeezed, some blood comes out. This is minimal and the pain does not allow for much more squeezing. It is not smooth, it makes the pores look massive. Fairly painful to the touch. It is mostly red but at times i'd say its purplish.
Avatar m tn It does look like there is a hair coming out of it but i am worried again because Sunday afternoon i had found out that i had some sort of blisters on the top of my gums. Now i have had these before. Sometimes i accidentally stab myself with my toothbrush and this happens which i had just brushed my teeth when i had found them but i am still worried. I did donate blood a couple weeks ago and i have just today gotten my results back.
Avatar n tn i have bumps that look like pimples on my vagina what are they?
Avatar n tn However, I just recently started having abdominal pains, bloating, cramps, and fatigue, which is exactly what I had last time I had an ovarian cyst on my right ovary. Like I said before, every one of us is different. What works for some, may not work for all. But, I think that Mirena has worked very well for me so far, as I was able to go without a period AT ALL for the past year or so!
