    I currently have a sebasceous cyst behind my ear which I had before and it has come back. I also have what I believe to be a spot (Due to being able to pop it and the fact that stuff was coming out) but I think it could be an infection as every time I finish doing it - it fills up again. I've started using Hydro-Cortisone cream to see if it works as that was what I was prescribed by my GP for the sebasceous cyst behind my ear but it hasn't worked so far.

    Does anyone know if it could be something else though that I'm missing. I have a GP appointment next week.

    don't use the hydro cortisone on your face! that's not what it was prescribed for and it one of the areas you are specifically NOT meant to apply it to.
    and if it is a spot then your just aggravating it with all the poking and bursting of it then applying steroid creams. if its not a spot then you still shouldn't be applying something so strong without instruction to do so

    wait until you see the gp and don't touch it. if you really, really feel worried about it then take some parceptamol or ibuprofen

    I am not an expert, and no one else on here is able to tell you what it is- so leave it to the doctor
