I am currently using Ziana to clear up cystic acne and folliculitis. I have been using it for about 4 weeks and it has been working very well to clear my pores. At the onset of treatment, I had two underground cysts. One of them started to form a head earlier this week, but now it looks very different than other drainage that I've experienced. There is a bulbous mass hanging out of where the open pore is. It isn't made of pus, but is a mixture of pus color and some red tissue. It is somewhat soft, but it just sits there. I can look down the side of it that it is coming from within the pore and seems to be connected to more red mass inside. I really don't know what this is or how to treat it. I have applied bacitracin to it to no avail. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. As it is on my face, I would really like to know how to help it heal as quickly as possible.
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine what it could be. Possibilities that may need to be considered include cell debris, skin tag etc. I would suggest getting this examined by a primary care physician or a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.
