Hey all,

I recently have a cyst on my buttocks that became agitated and is quite large (about 2" in diameter) and swollen. It's red and hot to the touch as well. I've made an appointment to see a doctor, but the earliest I could get in was Friday. Meanwhile I'm in quite a bit of pain just standing / walking and sitting is nearly impossible unless I uncomfortably contort my body so the area of the cyst isn't touching the chair. Do you have any tips or suggestions to deal with the pain / swelling in the mean time while I wait for my doctor's appointment?
