Scabies.: Eurex application would be appropriate for scabies, which is typically intensely itchy. With pus, though, it sounds like you may have a bacterial superinfection. I'd have to see it to be sure, but that sounds a little more involved than just scabies. Not worrisome, just curious.

No treatment online: and you didn't mention where the cyst is? you need to see your doctor or surgeon for definitive treatment, good luck
