Do you have a smooth, rounded bump somewhere on your face or body? It might be a cyst. They can form almost anywhere, and if irritated or infected, they can cause pain. While some cysts may resolve independently, others may need a professional to remove them.
What is a Cyst?
A cyst is a sac formed under the skin and filled with dead skin cells, fluid, or other material. Most pose no risk, but they can become infected and painful. Some cysts will go away on their own or respond to at-home treatments to help them drain. Others will benefit from the intervention of a dermatologist who can remove them properly. Cysts can resemble many other skin conditions, so have them diagnosed by a professional.
