I will begin by saying I'm in a somewhat fragile state at the moment (mental health and child trauma) so bare with me. Bella, my toy poo X has had 2 cysts and a couple of pimples (small cysts) that she's had since we got her back in February. One of the larger cysts is by her leg, the other on the back of the neck. The one on the side by her leg has popped, once just after we got her and I thought it was a one off. Tonight Ive gone to go to bed and I've noticed small blobs in her coat and sure enough it had broken the skin a was draining. Now it's dry stuff not liquid and there's no blood. Just when she moves a certain way it expresses some more. Well I got some warm salt water, not the most sophisticated treatment but better than nothing, just to wipe the gunk away and keep it clean. I applied a bit to much pressure while doing it, she squeaked and more had come out. It doesn't hurt her to touch it's just while this chunk of sebum/dead skin mix shot out her body. I feel awful because I've hurt her while just trying to clean the area to stop it going nasty. It wasn't my intention (Cysts have been checked by vet and they are somewhat walled off but still grow. Vet says they are not harming her and they don't bother her so leave it. They are the size of a BB so tiny really.) Was I wrong for cleaning it? Should I have just left it? Should I be taking her to the vets or at least mention it to her? As I said it's not bothering her, it's happened before and everything was fine. Am I overthinking?
