So, about a year ago I had my first flare. It got inflamed and infected and I went to the ER. Opted not to have it lanced and drained and instead started a round of clindamycin and it drained through the pit. When that was done I had a "pit picking" done but thought it was odd that the surgeon just punched the skin where the pit was and didnt do anything with the cyst itself. Anyhow, fast forward a year and the pit looks like it's still there and the cyst is usually a small purplish bruise looking mark, no bigger than a pencil eraser. Occassionally, it will become aggravated and a boil or pimple looking head will appear. It's not painful and when that happens I just squeeze a little to drain it and it goes back to the small purple mark. I guess my question is, if its not painful, the discharge doesn't smell, it hasn't gotten bigger, and it drains fine when it becomes aggtivated what should I do? I'm afraid if I have a surgeon di anything more it will make it worse. As of now its manageable but it is annoying to have ti pop it like a pimple every now and then.
