I would apply yunnan piao to open sores.
I've used it for people with PCOS that have inflamed cysts.
Yunnan piao is a Chinese herb that comes in a few forms.
You want the powder form.
Not the pills. There are capsules, that are filled with the powder, but the powder form is best in this instance for easy use.
I would take a small but and make a paste of it. Apply the paste to the sore, then pay with dry powder to seal it all in, and just leave it.
It should accelerate healing and help close off the tracts a bit..
Buy a few bottles, as it will take a while to get used to using it, and the vials are not that big.

Did you have a blog about your experiences? I just wonder because I came across one, where the author called them her "aliens". Localized anesthetic, on an active inflamation is horrible! I was told after "sometimes it isn't fully effective because of the infection" - a warning I would have liked before they cut me open! I have had 2 on my face removed. I know having them on your face isn't "supposed" to be part of this condition, but I have also read about others having them there as well. Thankfully they were small and not a huge deal. But the scarring left from the cysts became discolored and looked like constant bruises. There is some scarring from the removal, but it is nothing compared to the bluish spots I had before!
Don't give up on finding someone special. If a person is not willing to get past this issue, he/she isn't worth pursuing. I am very fortunate that my husband has never once made me feel self conscious about it, even when my face swelled up and a co worker asked if my husband (then fiancé) had hit me! But I do feel horrible in a swim suit, the scarring on my legs usually keeps me in a cover up unless I am actually in the water.
I feel for you guys, because it sounds like you have it worse than mine, and mine is way too much!
