Cysts are typically characterised as fluid-filled lumps. They are shaped like small domes and are often located just beneath the surface of the skin. While commonplace and harmless, they can be quite painful whenever they rupture. Cysts will grow gradually and may also develop into boils or skin abscesses which usually require medical attention.
While not necessarily the case, infected cysts will produce a foul smelling pus. An infection can occur if the cyst ruptures and isn’t treated or if the cyst is burst using unsterilized implements. The type of cyst is determined by the location, these types include:
- Epidermoid – usually located around the face, neck, shoulders, chest, skin and genitals
- Pilar – located around the hair follicles
- Chalazion – located on eyelids
You should book yourself in for a cyst removal in Dubai if it presents an issue such as catching on clothes or if it becomes infected. Some people also choose to have cysts removed if the location has an impact on their appearance. For more information, get in touch with our dermatology team today.
Keratin production takes place within certain cells, and over time, the keratin gradually moves up to the surface of the skin. However, in certain situations, the keratin will sink deeper into the skin. Here it multiplies creating a sac which, in turn, forms a cyst. Within the cyst, the keratin forms a yellow paste which can ooze from the cyst.
While cysts can appear on anyone at any time, the chance of one appearing is highest in any of the three instances mentioned below:
- History of acne
- Injury to the skin
As mentioned above, cysts will rupture from time to time and when they do this can be quite painful. This cycle won’t necessarily break itself with ruptures occurring on a regular basis if left unchecked. Cyst removal in Dubai should be sought sooner rather than later as once a cyst ruptures; dead skin cells disperse under the skin causing severe inflammation.
If the process is allowed to repeat, scar tissue will form making the treatment process incredibly tricky. You should always avoid squeezing cysts as this has a high chance of causing infection. Here at Blue Tree Clinics, our consultant dermatologists have access to the latest treatment methods for cyst removal in Dubai. We start with a complete examination and will discuss and suggest the right treatment for your needs.
For smaller, inflamed cysts, we provide Cortisone injections that help to shrink the cyst down until it eventually disappears by itself. In the case of larger cysts, these can be surgically removed by our team with as little pain or discomfort caused to you as possible. If the condition persists, we are also able to prescribe retinoic acid to help manage the problem long-term.
