"A cyst is a closed sac having a distinct membrane and division on the nearby tissue. They may contain air, fluids, or semi-solid material. A collection of pus is called an abscess, not a cyst. Once formed, the cyst could go away by itself or will have to be removed using surgery.
Many cysts in the body are benign (functional), the result of plugged ducts or other natural body outlets for secretions. However, a few are tumors or are produced within tumors, and are potentially malignant," (Wikipedia)

[YEA] 01/12/2013: Boilbb from Anonymous: "I had a re-ocurring small groin cyst that wouldn't heal. I would sometimes get small re-ocurring ones on my lower belly too. Sometimes it would come to a head but still a soft marble existed below the skin. I tried so many different remedies (at different times) from apple cider vinegar to iodine to magnesium oil, turmeric, hydrogen peroxide, etc. Honey would help it close up. When I used T____ [anti-fungal cream] on them for a week or so, they all healed. I had a feeling the groin boil might be fungal related because it itched a lot. It is worth a try if other things aren't working. I also found it slightly aphrodisiac qualities."Replies

Apple Cider Vinegar
10/24/2010: Tish from Toronto, Ontario,canada: "Hey petra from trinidad, i would be very careful using the commercial vinegar. the ones u get in the grocery stores are way too acidic. my nephew tried for a sore throat and ended up with inflamation. so please find one that says organic vinegar unpaturised, u get them at stores where u buy organic stuff. hope this helped."

Bartholin Cyst Remedies
[YEA] 07/03/2013: Ana from Wilmington, Nc: "I cured my bartholin's cyst following two months of taking 2 tblspns ACV in small amount of water (had been on ACV for allergies for two months prior to discovering golf-ball sized cyst), but when I added 1 drop of Lugol's iodine and 10 drops of silica, the cyst felt smaller after a month and was gone in two months and hasn't returned. I had read on this site that cysts are caused by iodine deficiency, and it must be true!"
[YEA] 02/28/2013: Jimmychinga from Honolulu, Hi: "My wife has been suffering from Bartholin Cyst for a couple of years. Flare ups that lasts for weeks multiple times a year.
Very very painful. Doctors only made things worse by cutting the cyst open then squeezing and cleaning. Followed by "just enough" anti-biotics for the cyst to flare up again in a few weeks. 4 operations and 3 doctors later... still the same. She couldn't walk, move... It was horrible. Each flare up would last about a month.
Then we finally visited a Naturopathic doctor who suggested using Vitamin D3 (10,000 IU) and Colloidal Silver (I think it was like 15 drops under your tongue twice a day) and a couple of Unda Numbers.
The very next day, less than 12 hours, the cyst sorta blew it self up and disappeard within in a few days never to return.
Wow. Just simply wow. It's been more than 3 years since and still cyst free."Replies

[YEA] 04/04/2012: Margie from Austin, Texas: "For those of you that have problems with acne, you should try this. Buy a bee pollen complex that has pollen, bee propolis, and royal jelly that is 1000 mg. This cured the acne on my husband's back and for a couple other people I recommended it to. I discovered it by accident and upon doing some research found that it is a blood purifier which is why it probably works."
[YEA] 10/17/2013: Janie Y from Illinois: "I was born with a very rare disease called Pachyonychia Congenita which causes problems with the hair, nails, and skin. I am more susceptible to skin problems, one of which is being very prone to (sebaceous) cysts. I was excited to try the castor oil remedy that is being mentioned on this wonderful website! I have had a good-sized (very noticeable) cyst in the outer corner of my left eye for more than two years now. The outer part appeared plump and soft to the touch, somewhat yellowish in color, and puffy. I could see and feel the hard-like fluid inside of it, but while poking at it down deep, I could feel what felt like a pea. I had messed with with before, but had given up - Seemed I wouldn't excrete the substance underneath it very well. The stuff was very hard to get out. I would always get a little liquid from it and a little blood, causing it to swell up a bit, then got it infected... I thought it useless to try anymore, so I just left it alone. That is until I discovered the Castor OIL Remedyl!!! Anyways, after reading the posts here, I decided to tackle it again. On Sept. 1st, I started poking around at the cyst, squeezed at it, and got it to secrete some oily like substance and some blood out of it. It was still hard though! I musta messed with it for about an hour. It was really swelled up great by then. It looked like someone had punched me in the eye ( I was squinting by the time I was finished with my treatment of it for the day)! I was determined however, to march on... Well, after poking and prodding at it for an hour, I cleaned it up, rinsed it with warm water, dried it, then dabbed it with the castor oil, and covered it up with a bandage. I did this twice a day. Morning and night. I squeezed it each time, to get more liquid and blood out of it, and then repeated the castor oil/bandage thing. About 7 days later, Sept. 7, the cyst and my eye were still puffy (I got a lot of stares), , but I could tell that the cyst was getting a smaller. The castor oil was softening it up, which made it easier for me to squeeze the substance out of it! It was coming out pretty good by then, with hardly any effort on my part by that time. I could tell that the castor oil was really pulling the stuff out and causing the cyst to drain more! I continued this for about two more weeks. I could really see a big difference by then, so that was great for me. I was trying to be soooo patient, seein' as how patience is not one of my better virtues! After all, I told myself - I did have this thing by my eye for at least two years! By week 3, my eye was looking normal again. The puffiness/swelling was all gone - the liquid was drained from the cyst. The area felt flat! And, it was starting to scab over. All that was left of the cyst was this little pea- sized knot by then). I continued to rub and massage the castor oil into this area each morning and every night before going to bed. I woke up one morning - Sept. 26... to find a small "pimple" had formed in the spot where the cyst was. I squeezed it, and this stringy thread- like substance snaked it's way out. This was the "pea" that I had been feeling for the last two years! I write this on Oct. 17th, and as I run my finger over where the cyst had been... I smile (: The cyst had been my unwelcoming companion for the past two years or so, and it is NOW completely gone, and has been for a couple weeks! The area around my eye is nice and smooth. Yayyyyyy.... Oh - I might also add that... During the time that I was treating this particular cyst, I had several smaller ones on my face, as well. I would massage the castor oil into them all the while and... They are gone too!!! This will now become my ritual for every cyst I see poppin' up on my bod!! We gotta "Zap em before they Happen".. Castor Oil is definately the trick! Thanks be to you guys who write in with your wonderful remedies!!! Have a great "Cyst-free" day!!!"

At first I thought it was a infected pimple and tried to pop it swelled and became very big. After a few weeks of leaving it alone it went back down. A lot of people say it could be a wart but a pharmacist told me to not use the wart removal because she never seen a wart look like that. Looked more of a cyst. I've tried everything.. I've read alot of people say use castor oil on here. DOES IT WORK?? What are the pros and cons of using?! Thanks!"
[YEA] 02/09/2012: Joyce from Lansdowne, Pa replies: "Last Saturday night I was about to get into the shower and I looked in the mirror and noticed a bump (sty) on my lower eyelid. It itched slightly.

[YEA] 02/09/2012: Alan from Homestead, Fl. replies: "Castor oil has worked for me in this very application on many occasions. Put it on heavy and keep covered with a band-aid. If you search this out you will find it can be used for many EXTERNAL applications with amazing results."
05/02/2012: Maggie from Lansing, Mi replies: "My husband has been taking _____s apple cider vinegar for about 6 months, and olive leaf extract for two months. Suddenly his body is like a sebaceous cyst factory. They are popping up everywhere. He has had 3 removed, we got rid of the infected one with castor oil and manuka honey, and just today he showed me a new cyst on the back of his neck. These cysts have just kind of appeared on stage and I'm wondering if the vinegar and OLE have created a detox or cleansing thing in his body and the toxins are coming out as cysts. What do you think?"
05/02/2012: Sara from The Beach, Canada replies: "One thing is certain when you take these things is that you have to take a lot of water with it as well so that the toxins have an avenue to release in... Otherwise they will find their own way, and they do it through the largest organ... The skin"
[YEA] 12/26/2010: Abigail from Lawrence, Ks: "I developed a sebaceous cyst on my back about 1-1/2 inches in diameter! I had it checked by a Dr., who said it was just a sebaceous cyst and wasn't dangerous, and there's not much they can do about it. She said even when people get them surgically removed, the cysts sometimes come back. When I got pregnant the cyst started itching and got bigger and turned red and purple. This concerned me. My midwife sad that all the extra hormones during pregnancy can cause cysts to behave like this. She suggested trying castor oil, and warned that it might take awhile to fully go away.
Here's what I did:
Squirt some pure cold-pressed castor oil onto a cotton round pad. Apply the pad to the cyst. Apply medical tape to hold the pad in place. Change the pad once or twice a day. Sometimes when changing the pad there would be yellowish pus on the pad. Sometimes there was nothing. The castor oil did at least relieve the itching, but there were days I thought that this wasn't working. However, the cyst was actually slowly deflating. It took about three months, but the cyst went away! I still have a small, very light red circle on my back where it was, but the skin is flat and smooth, and I never have any itching. It's been gone for about 2-1/2 months now, so I think the cure was effective."
12/26/2010: Diane from Berkeley, Ca replies: "I had about 10 of them on my scalp for years. Tried a lot of things, none of them very effective, and finally chose surgery. I am so glad that I did. It's super easy (typically done in a dermatologist's office in less than an hour), and a HUGE relief to have it all gone. One started to come back, but I was able to extract its core and it went away after that. None of the others have come back, and it has been five years. Honestly, it wasn't worth all the mental anguish over a decade trying tons of things and hoping they would go away. Surgery was by far the best choice."
[YEA] 09/12/2011: Daisy from Jacksonville, Florida, U.s.a replies: "I have a small cyst on my face that I have been ignoring for at least a year, but then got hard and started to be annoying. I have no insurance right now, and money is VERY tight, so laying out hundreds of dollars to have it cut out is not an option right now. I've tried a number of things -- iodine, tiger balm, campho-phenique, coconut oil -- but the only thing that even remotely began to be of assistance was holding a hot compress to it for 10-20 minutes twice a day. After a couple of days, it softened it up to the extent that I could get some of the gack out, but only with *tremendous* pressure, and not enough came out to make a significant difference anyway. Repeated efforts didn't do much; it's like whatever got hard in there stayed hard and the heat only got to a small part of it, no matter how often or for how long I applied the hot compress. (I think this is because I ignored it and let it get old and hard, instead of dealing with it when I first got it. ) I didn't want to break the skin over it or get it infected, so I stopped mashing on it and kept looking for something else.
I saw the posts here on EC about castor oil, and after googling for more info I saw where it had worked for other people with stubborn sebaceous cysts, so I got some castor oil and put it on under a band-aid before going to sleep. Already, just after the first application, it's drawing the cyst up and out and softening whatever's in there: it never hurt before, but it did a little after putting the castor oil on, kind of like a tiny bruise, and then when I woke up and took off the band-aid, a bunch of nasty-looking stuff came out with almost no pressure. It's not gone at all, but it's flatter and the castor oil is definitely working to break it up. Many thanks to Abigail from Lawrence, Kansas for taking the time to describe exactly what she did, because that's what I'm doing and it's already working after so much else has failed.
09/16/2011: Daisy from Jacksonville, Florida, U.s.a replies: "Update to my last post: you can go ahead and call it a cure! I have been applying a bit of gauze saturated with castor oil to the cyst morning and night, and every time I change the bandage I try to express whatever's in there. Over the last several days, slowly but surely, most of it has come out (there was even a hair buried in there! ?! ) and now whatever comes out is mostly clear.
One thing that became obvious is that it was a lot deeper and more substantial than I gave it credit for. I think it must have had a few loculations too, because when I'd try to express it I'd change the direction of my fingers, and then feel a little pop and get more stuff out. It was a nasty and complex cyst.
I'm going to keep going with it for the next few days, but the area is already flattened out and just about gone altogether, which is what I was hoping for. Will it come back because I didn't get the sac? No idea, but today I'm thrilled that I no longer have the pea-sized lump on my cheek!
09/14/2013: Alice from Oakland, California replies: "Thanks everyone. I tried all of the remedies and then some. When my skin got so sore and it hadn't popped yet, after about a week, I put on some Vitamin E overnight. The next morning it popped though still had lots of hard areas around it. In the following days, whenever I was home I either used hot water soaks, vitamin E or Castor Oil and a heating pad. For the work day, I tried to dry it with calamine and witch hazel mixture covered by a gauze. I seem to need to massage the hard parts after I heat the area and kind of push toward the head to get all of the puss out. I've been doing this for over a week now, but I think it's almost flat. Did not get the core out though. Also, about a week ago, I went to the dr for antibiotics because it was so infected. I think that is one reason it didn't get too much bigger and I felt better mentally because I've had ones that just kept growing and they are so painful. This is definitely a time committment, but at least it's not surgery."
[YEA] 03/17/2009: Philippa from Surrey, BC, Canada: "I have problems with cysts/ganglia developing on my wrists and finger joints. I usually have to have them removed surgically. This was a real problem as I had to limit activity and keep the surgery site dry for several weeks after each surgery - not to mention the pain.
I had started developing another cyst on my left wrist that was becoming big enough to be considered my parasitic twin. I was putting off having it looked at due to the pain, the surgery, the inconvenience, etc.
I had previously been taking Terramin Clay tablets (1 tablet per 50 lb. of weight) to help cleanse my system; but, had stopped for some unknown reason. I started taking the clay tablets again without realizing that they could help my cyst.
Over a period of several days, my cyst shrank and disappeared. I had no idea how it happened; but, was delighted nonetheless. Two days later I happened to stumble upon the Terramin site at a place that was explaining how the clay in the tablets was small enough to break through the blood/tissue barrier. These particles were so small they had the ability to enter the cyst, start cleansing it and eventually remove it.
I'm back on my clay and loving it!"

Dandelion and Viola
01/22/2012: Heather from Ny: "Infected Sebaceous Cyst
Epidermal cyst; Keratin cyst; Epidermoid cyst
Any MD will automatically give you antibiotics for an infection! Try this instead. Dandelion and Viola clear out toxins in your body and will get rid of the infection. If you have a sensitive stomach you may want to eat before drinking the remedy.
Remedy: Go to Chinese Herb Shop. Get 8-10 bags of a mix of Dandelion and Viola. Each day bring to a boil one bag of herbs in 4 cups of water and then simmer for 45 minutes. Drink this mixture throughout the day and also wash the cysts with this mixture. (I even took some of the warm herbs and put them on my cysts for 10-15 minutes) Make sure to finish the herbs even after the cyst is gone. (drink herbs for 8 - 10 days) Amazing!"
Dermoid Cyst Remedies
04/22/2013: Snehanshu from Kolkata, Westbengal: "Sir, I have been suffering from painless cyst/tumor on my forhead for last four years.
Initially it was very hard and small in size. But now it has grown to 3.0 cm. Surgeons have diagnosed it as a benign growth and recommended for surgery. But I don't want to go for any surgery. Meanwhile I have undergone various homeo treatment but without yielding any positive result excepting that the cyst which was very hard has now become little bit softer Homeo medicines that I have already taken under Registered Practitioner are L.V. Alb., Canghis, Calc. Fluor., Slirrhinn, Phosphorus, Nat. Mur., Acid Fluor., Conium Mac., Tub. Borium, Thuja, Baryta Carb30, Aurum Metallicum 200, Medorrhinum, etc..
I shall remain ever grateful if you suggest the remedy.
Allopath surgeons have diagnosed it as Dermoid Cyst while homeopaths term it Lipoma.
One of my friends have advised me to take Thiosinaminium 6x.
04/22/2013: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines replies: "Hi Snehanshu... Ted from Bangkok advises using a topical mixture to be applied to the lipoma consisting of DMSO (Dimethyl Sulfoxide), clove oil and castor oil in the following mix:
Castor Oil 25%
Clove Oil 5%
Ted also advises treating with supplements like bromelain (a protein digesting enzyme which acts to digest and remove the cyst), Vitamin B3 as niacinamide and L-Lysine. Dosages etc are shown in this link:
Stay away from dairy foods like milk, yoghurt, cheeses etc because excess calcium in the diet actually promotes cyst formation. Take regular daily dosages of Kelp seaweed as well if you can -- this contains iodine which also has anti-cyst activity.
Supplementing Black Seed Oil (Latin: Nigella sativa) for cancers and cysts is also useful. You should have no trouble finding Black Seed Oil -- called Kalaumji in Hindi/Urdu - where you live in India. But be sure and get the organic pressed black seed oil. I have been taking a tablespoon of black seed oil with food every day which has successfully reduced and flattened a small sebhorreic cyst on the back of my neck.
From all the research, it also appears that black seed is capable of healing allergy problems -- in other words black seed acts to heal the intestines thus preventing foreign protein bodies leaking from a damaged intestines into the blood -- creating allergies.

Ear Cyst Remedies
10/05/2013: Cindy from Cochrane: "I would be grateful for information on remedies for a cyst I have been diagnosed with on a nerve ending in my ear. The past two months I have been to ER three times with severe vomiting attacks thought to be from meniere's disease and an MRI showing the cyst, though the doc doesn't seem to think it is causing me these problems. Does any one know what to do for meniere's or have information on chinese herbs for congestion in the ear and or dissolve the cyst? Thank you so much. I am feeling totally helpless with this situation and worried about keeping my job from having to leave work when one of these attacks comes on."Replies
10/05/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc replies: "Cindy,
About the inner ear problem... You can find some sources on the internet that mention a viral connect to the inner ear issue; the semi-circular cannals/ or labyrinth/ or endolymphatic sac... Can get virally infected. This condition can cause your vertigo and might have nothing to do with the cyst or the cyst might be a manifestation of the infection; assuming an infection is the cause.
My favorite for getting rid of an inner ear infection is colloidal silver. Obtained on line or at a health food store. Use an ear syringe to squirt into ear, gently the first time. Repeat twice daily for a week. A cyst can be caused by any number of things, but a good guess is that the same thing causing the menieres diagnosis you got may be the root cause of the cyst.
Other posts about infection include the use of tea tree oil, hydrogen peroxide and even apple cider vinegar. Those are anti virals. Look on the "ailments" section of Earth Clinic under ear infection or menieres and you'll find good posts.
Still my fav is CS for knocking out an ear infection is CS.
By the way, when you use the syringe make sure you are physically secure because the liquid going into the ear will REALLY make you dizzy especially given that you already have vertigo.
02/27/2012: Gorettia from Lena, Louisiana: "Just want to help anyone suffering from chronic painful cysts... Gluten intolerance may be your problem. It was mine. After YEARS of fighting a loosing battle, my bloodwork came back positive for celiac (over the limit anitbodies showed up). I had to give up soy, dairy, sugar, gluten, wheat, yeast, and most starchy foods like white potatoes, corn and beans... But I thoroughly enjoy healthy eating... Broccoli, cabbage, carrots, sweet potatoes, lean ground beef, salmon, turkey and a few other foods. For years dermatologist told me diet had nothing to do with it... But I am now convinced diet has everything to do with it ... Plus getting your stomach in good working order. Pantothenic acid (b5) in 500 mg per day and acidipholus and digestive enzymes are a must in my daily regimin.
Just hope I can help someone else with this advice... Give up the junk food and gluten and see if it helps. God revealed to me what I needed to do... So I give him all the praise and glory for my progress. Believe it or not, I now actually like the taste of FOOD without all the sauces, toppings and added "stuff" we destroy it with. Blessings!!!

I am wondering if this is some how her body doing a little bit of a cleanse. She drinks a ton of water because her body is not producing the horomone to retain the water. I am going to suggest the castor oil and maybe some lemon, oregano and melaleuca essential oils."
03/14/2013: Joy from Battleground, Wash replies: "Salt holds the water in the cells, so a good sea salt with iodine would probably help, and a multi mineral and a good mutli vitamin because she has been drinking a lot of water. When you go to the emergency room they give you a salt and potassium IV with water and most people feel a lot better after that and go home. She could get some pediolite to start out.
Coconut oil is amazing if she can tolerate it. Put some in oatmeal or drink in hot cocoa. Start slow because there can be die off symptoms."
