anyone ever heard of this? the doctor diagnosed me with this, i have painful cyst under my arm and this isnt the first time, i get painful cysts often. the doc prescribed antibiotics but my supply tanked so i had to stop taking it. i've been taking probiotics. its not getting worse. a couple days ago it finally popped and drained, but i feel like not everything got out cause there was still a small lump.

i've also been drinking ACV with baking soda. i'm going to keep putting hot compresses on it and see if that helps. it does seem like its going away but i'm worried it may not have drained completely....

has anyone else had this? or heard of this? i've been told there is nothing really i can do...

theres an ointment called Ithamacal (sp) that helps drain things like that ..  ask the pharmacist
