Sebaceous cyst woes.

In the same area (right below my mons pubis on the outer labia) over the past few years I've been developing cystic pimples over and over. I scar very easily so it's like I have a record to remind myself that this isn't new.

The past 4 months I've had what I thought was a cystic pimple form, swell, then shrink and reabsorb repeatedly without heading or "popping". I've learned to leave them the heck alone but now I'm fed up. The past 2 months it hasn't completely reabsorbed so when it shrinks a small bump remains. I saw my doctor this week and she confirmed it's a cyst and that I should just leave it alone unless it becomes painful. It IS painful though. It's a normal cystic bump, but the skin looks taught and red. I told her this but nothing came of it.

Are these cysts the same as cystic acne? And what can I do to help move this one towards healing and possibly prevent this from happening again? I'm already doing hot compresses, but it's becoming a read drag. It itches at times but if I scratch I irritate it even more. I did a search to see if this has been discussed already, and I apologize if I overlooked anything.
