Customer Question

I had a small cyst on my face and the doc. pinched it, that was 3 weeks ago, slowly it became bigger and bigger and now it is really infected and it hurts. I am taking sulfamethoxazole. but it is very red and it seems a little crust has form on some part of it. As it is Xmas it is very hard to see a dermatologist and the doc who pinched it never return my calls (he happened to be at another doctor office while I was there and looked at it and did ask if he could pinch it). I am worrying about going to just any doctor as it is on my face and I really want to have minimum scar and thought I could wait till monday and try to see a dermatologist??
