I had a cyst abscess before, about 2 years ago. Went to my physician and some doctor in training lanced it for me. During this, she showed her nurse the hair that caused it. I asked her to remove it and she said she can't do that. I now have another one. I didn't know it was possible to remove this, or that it even grows back. Did she do me wrong by not removing it or telling me I could remove it? I thought it was lance and done. Now I know it's a bigger issue. Any tips to ease the pain, and to drain it at home? I have no health insurance now, and no money. I won't be eligible for work insurance until October, and I'm looking into Medicaid now. Last time it cost me $236, and I went in not knowing my dad had removed me from his insurance. He went out of his way to kick me off. It cost him nothing having me there.
