Since you have already had numerous courses of antibiotics, it may be time to have something done about the cyst itself.

You may need to see a dermatologist or a surgeon.

Good luck.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its due to inflammation. I would suggest you simple pain killers like advil.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
