[YEA]  Batholin Cysts are a tricky thing. For one thing, doctors just want to poke holes in you, and for another, there isn't much out there on how to effectively deal with these.

I have had 2 bouts of a cyst over the course of 2 years. They were both badly infected, and painful, and I healed from both of them using home remedies.

I think its imperative first off that women look at the root cause of this issue. I know for sure that these cysts are formed as a byproduct of sex - and on each account when mine have formed I have been stressed, and not "in the moment" of sexual acts. This is stressful on your body. If you aren't feeling 100% pleasured by sexual experiences with your partner, its important to have these communications. If you are having sex and thinking about a million other things, its important to do things to relax, and "get into the mood". Things just work better that way. And if you feel soreness after sex, be proactive about it. Don't push your body past its comfort, and manage your stress. There are great herbs you can take to increase your sexual urge, such as an awesome formulation from Jing Herbs called Three Sisters. I take this every day, and right before sexual intercourse to really make sure my body is prepped, and that I will be producing adequate fluids in a healthy way.

So. For treatment of a bartholin cyst, I suggest to stop eating all processed sugars, dairy, & grains, and start eating/drinking lots of vegetables and fruits. Think green smoothies, and cooked veggies. You will need to load up on pro-biotic rich foods & supplements such as organic sour kraut, kim chi, coconut water kefir, or just general very high quality supplemental probiotics. You can treat yourself with honey and stevia chai smoothies if you need something sweet. But this is very important. It is also important that you mentally prepare to REST. Give yourself 3-5 days to deal with this, and allow yourself this.

What helped the infection most is douching with Silver Sol & Apple Cider Vinegar. Silver Sol will knock out infections, but it is more expensive. I took Silver Sol internally 6-8 times per day, and douched with it once every 2 hours for the first 2 days. Once the swelling & pain started to drastically come down, I started douching with Apple Cider Vinegar. The best way to do either of these douches is with a medicinal squeeze top tube - the kind that comes in a lot of herbal tincture bottles. For the ACV I mixed 1/2 cup of ACV with 1 cup of warm water, and used this throughout the day, on the hour.

The douches will knock out a lot of the infection & help with the pain. You will most likely notice changes happening quickly. Make sure that if you are in pain, that you are taking Silver Sol internally as well, in order to keep your whole system strong. Also be sure to be taking powerful strains of Probiotics, and treating our body extra well with nourishing foods. While you are resting and healing, consider the possible causes of the issue, and allow yourself to let go of anger & any resentments that you may be harboring towards your partner, or life in general.

To help with letting go of the emotional aspects that are so highly related to this issue, taking Epsom Salt baths will clear these emotions and toxic energies from your body. Allow yourself to soak in them for at least 20 minutes once a day. You will probably feel like crying~ allow yourself to do so. Being real with yourself about your feelings, and expressing them will quicken your healing, and help to eliminate these issues in the future.

Ear Cyst Remedies   0  0   

Posted by Cindy (Cochrane) on 10/05/2013

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.

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.

Eliminate Gluten   0  0   

Posted by Gorettia (Lena, Louisiana) on 02/27/2012

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!!! In the name of my Lord Jesus Christ!!!

My daughter has one of these cysts, and unfortunately she is already gluten and dairy intolerant, and she's not eating grains or sugar right how either. 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.

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.

Epsom Salts, Heating Pad   1  0   

Posted by Ashley (Houston, Tx) on 12/21/2010

[YEA]  Hi I too suffer from vaginal cyst they were always on the side. I have had this problem since I was 13 I am 20 yrs old now. The first time I got it I was so terrified especially me being at the age 13 I didn't know what the crap was going on. I had it for a whole week until my mom finally noticed that I was walking funny and couldn't sit down right. So I went to the doctor and got it sorted out. I literally had about 50 of them and let me tell you it was so not comfortable.

Here are some tips that helped me get a hold on this situation. First you can use about 2 1/2 cups of Epsom salt in warm water. Then when it is time for bed use a heating pad and put it in between your legs that usually helps. Also shave down there that has helped me a lot and use vaginal wash those are most what helped me. Trust me on this because no one wants to go to a doctor and get it popped.

I'm not trying to be rude but aside from the epsom soak everything sounds like a horrible idea. The shaving and vaginal wash thing will cause a whole bundle of other problems like infection in and outside the vagina. ( yeast ect. ) And shaving can cause follicitus which can lead to blocking and locking in sebum leading to a cyst... I know this because I've accidentally done this to myself because I was uninformed. Seriously, it causes more problems then when you started that are even more painful and harder to be free from... Yea thats a no.

Trimming might be still be okay, as long as the hair is not shaved low enough to grow inwards, and washing is okay if the soap is not antibiotic; try to keep it away from the urethra and vaginal opening.

Garlic   1  0   

Posted by Humberto on 01/10/2008

[YEA]  I had a cyst behind my ear. I would pop it and white stuff came out that smelled really bad.

1. I cut a clove of garlic and smeared the juice on it.

2. I put a cut clove on it with a band aid and left it on for 15 minutes. 3. I minced the garlic and put some juice on it.

(DANGER) 4. I made garlic paste with extra virgin olive oil. Crushed/minced up garlic, add extra virgin olive oil. Put it in a glass jar. It turns into a paste (like jam or jelly). I left it on for 1 hour. I made a mistake. I should had left it on for only 15 minutes. I burned my skin.

WARNING: Only leave it on for 15 minutes. The cyst is gone. The garlic killed it.

Dermatologist drained this cyst 1 week ago I have been washing the area with antibacterial soap and applying an ointment she prescribed and taking antibiotics I have been wearing a band aid on top of the area. This morning I removed the band aid and the skin came off the cyst area which is on top of my nose all of this white stuff started coming out I cleaned the hole with peroxide and I used the antibacterial soap. I applied the ointment and covered again. Have you ever had a cyst on top of your nose that left a hole? What did you do?

I have had a few cysts in different places.... My nose being one of them. It formed in between the outer part of the nostril, like where it can flare. I thought it was a regular zit. I tried to pop it and It became so huge I went to the ER where they left me to sit with an ice pack because I didn't have insurance. I left and went home, called out of work and spent my evening studying it, trying to pop it putting hot compresses on it. It became huge and inflamed. The next day it was so filled up it was causing me not to be able to see outta my eye because the puss had spread into my cheek making it swollen. All I could do was examine it. I noticed what appeared to be like three little blackheads near where the head would come out if it were to appear, so not being able to take the agony anymore, I went into the bathroom and I stabbed the three little black spots with a needle, then pressed my cheek towards my nose and to my suprise.... Lime green puss came pouring out. I guess you could say I drained it myself by pressing and pushing all the puss out till I couldn't get anymore. It look like a half hour. I had the hottest water running and just let it drain into the sink. Once it was done I put neosporin on the open parts where I stabbed it and went about my day. For about a week I could feel a hollowness from where all the puss came out of. I could push on the area and it would stay indented from my cheek all the way to my nose. It's been about 8 years since that happened and I never got medical attention for it, so I fear it may return, but my luck has been good thus far. It didn't leave a hole, but it was the closest story I had that could relate;)

Roughly 20 years ago, it was like a small mole at my right butt, near the anus area.

Now at age 80, it is may be the size of a match box or a small bar of soap. It is somewhat hard with a softy middle if I press. No pain, but sitting on it long enough like an hour watching tv, it is painful.

Is it serious?
Is it an abscess?
What the heck is it?

Someone online said that for his case, he cut himself and dipped his butt on a warm salty water to remove the swelling.

Ted from Bangkok, hmm, is there any other safer alternative?

You should go see a doctor for this. It sounds very serious. Any mole that has grown that large is not something you should try to treat yourself. The general rule is if the mole is larger than a pencil eraser, has changed color, or is painful then you should go to a specialist to have it checked for cancer. Find out if it is cancer and then come back and ask EC what options you have. That way you know what your battle plan should be rather than guessing and possibly causing yourself more harm.

Dear Lau.Ah.Pek,

If it lasts some 60 years, I don't think it is something as bad as cancer. If it was cancer, it would have been very much bigger than a small match box, like a soccer ball. Additionally, it would have been extremely stressful to the body to the point of needing hospitalisation.

The fact that you can live reasonably well that long suggests may be it is some trapped bodily fluids.

Long time ago, a friend had some fluids bulging out behind his neck. The doctor cut a bit and pumped out the liquid. Not the nicest thing but it solved the problem.

That's probably what you need to do. I can't think of anything else. It's a pity no one else, particularly the EC experts like Bill and Ted, is offering any simpler help. Probably after the Bangkok flood eases.

I hope this thread will not get buried too deep in the list and become forgotten. Hopefully God will send help to you Sir soon. Keep checking this thread for update.

Ah, uncle Lau.Ah.Pek,

I think your blood is dirty. That could be "bisul" / abscess / boil. It always appear at the "burit" / buttock.

I don't know how to cure it scientifically but I will phone my "nenek" / grandmother at the "kampung" / village for some traditional Malay remedy.

I'll be back.

Hydrogen Peroxide   3  0   

Posted by Carolyn (Abilene, Tx) on 08/21/2008

[YEA]  3% Hydrogen Peroxide cured a sebaceous cyst that I usually have to go to a dermatologist to have surgically removed once every 10 years as it reoccurs. I used 3% H202 on a q-tip daily rubbing it for several minutes prior to bedtime. The cyst became sore, then developed a pustule on top of it. Eventually that broke and started oozing. I felt a piece of skin protruding from the edge of the cyst and started pulling at it after I did the treatment each day. Eventually a piece of weird feeling skin came out of the cyst as I was pulling. I continued the treatment and as the cyst shrunk more, another piece of skin stuck out and when I pulled, the remainder of the sac came out, which had been the protruding skin! The cyst is gone with no hair loss or incisions and a cost of less than $1! The hair around the cyst area did turn a lighter shade of color due to the peroxides bleaching properties, but that was no problem. It feels great to be able to comb my hair or go to my hairdresser without this cyst being in the way. I don't know if it will return, it usually takes 6 years to start forming again, but I'll start the treatment as soon as it starts next time.

[YEA]   I had a similar experience to Carolyn of Abilene. I suffer from cysts on my scalp, but having the dr. cut them out only causes another to grow, within a couple of days, so I quit going. Finally, it grew very large, and one day I noticed it was draining a tad, so I began squeezing on it, over several days. It would only drain tiny bits, then it became so tender, I knew it was infected, so I started applying regular Hydrogen Peroxide with a cotton ball. It was much better by the next day, and over time, it would drain, eventually I would feel something sticking out and tug on it. This took several days, till finally a white sac would pop out when I pulled. Days later, a smaller sac emerged, then days later, an even tinier one! That was 9 months ago, and it has not grown back, which is amazing to me, but I never realized that it was the hydrogen peroxide that was the key, till I came across Carolyn's post on this site. I am so very grateful, because I know this will be a problem again one day, as my dad and brother suffer from this ailment as well. I cannot wait to share this with them! My dad gets several cut off of his scalp at least once a year! I am so very grateful for this site!

How long does it take for the hydrogen peroxide treatment to work for getting rid of the cyst?

[YEA]   I've been using hydrogen peroxide 3% on my sebaceous cyst, which started at an inch diameter for about a month now. It's working very well, and I've been getting pretty much the behavior described where weird white skin is getting slowly removed over time. At some point, my hair follicle got unclogged, and even though I'm not supposed to, I squeezed a whole lot of fibrous white stringy material that looked and smelled like ricotta cheese. It was quite a bit more than I was expecting! It's completely flat now, although I know the sac is just beneath the surface. I'm just continuing to apply the hydrogen peroxide solution daily and letting it continue to work its magic.

Just wondering does any one know how long it takes a sebaceous cyst to burst using apple cider vinegar? It has been 13 days now; it is finally coming to a head but at this point the vinegar is stinging the crap out of me all day every day. Was also given stuff by herbalist to put on it; it contains calendula, golden seal,chamomile, myrhh, thyja and one other ingredient I can't read, and an antibiotic as well containing golden seal, Echinacea, blue flag and myrrh. Just wondering does any one know how long it will take the pus to all.come out and after that what's the total healing time coz the herbalist did say I will have a hole where the cyst is and the heal from the inside out. Any advice be greatly appreciated

Ted: My wife was suffering from a dermoid cyst of size 6.2cm in right ovary (her left ovary has already been removed in 2012 due to a large dermoid cyst). We are regular visitors to EARTHCLINIC and we are following the suggestions on dermoid cyst mentioned on the site.

Last week, we performed her sonography after her menses and the report read: 'Dermoid cyst of size 4.3cm with bilateral hydrosalpinx of 4cm, 4cm each side.' The previous size of her cyst has been shown reduced but a new problem of hydrosalpinx has arisen. For dermoid cyst, she has been following a strict regimen as follows for the last two months- Apple cider vinegar, Blackstrap molasses, Aloe vera juice, Fruits n vegetables, Castor oil packs, Lemon, Honey. Occasional fish.

She's strictly refraining from Red meat, White flour, white sugar, Fatty substances, Milk products. I have two questions for you.

1.I think that this hydrosalpinx has developed because the fluid of dermoid cyst is seeping out through the sac and trying to reach the uterus thereby blocking the fallopian tubes. What do you think?

2. Given her present condition, what dietry suggestions would you offer so that she could better manage her problem of hydrosalpinx? Which foods should she keep continuing and which she should stop right away? Please also suggest as she is suffering from infections so what natural remedies can we have to maintain the body equillibrium? She has to take pills for regulating her menstrual cycle for the last three months. Can you suggest some herb or cure for her menses to start regularly and naturally?

[YEA]  Periapical Cyst: Eliminate it with Gauze, Water, Oil Pulling, Garlic Oil, Tumeric

A Periapical Cyst is formed after trapped puss cannot escape through the infected tooth's abscess, and instead finds a path into the jaw and cheek near the tooth abscess origin. The cyst usually gets quite large, expanding the cheek outward, putting pressure on the mouth and face. Until the puss finds a way out, it will remain. A possible cause is infection from biting down hard on the weak tooth, or through a narrow opening in the abscessed tooth.

SUMMARY

For a whole week I suffered with this type of cyst, making my cheek look bloated as though I had a very thick slice of salami between my jaw and inside cheek. It hurt on touch, and made my lower face nerves numb from the pressure. It was a bit embarrassing in public, but my health was most important, as this can sometimes be life threatening if it moves too far into the face or down the neck. Once you see the puss, you'll know why.

The day it finally broke, that morning, I decided to stuff a Gauze pad into my mouth throughout the day, to even out the look of my distorted face. By afternoon, the puss finally found a way out of my cheek tissue, through a tiny blister hole it pressed against, just above my lower jaw gum-line. Once the flow began, I carefully massaged out the rest, spitting out the salty, yellow-green puss and blood into the sink and rinsing with a glass of 50% hydrogen peroxide/ 50% water mix to disinfect the mouth.

I didn't have to use the scalpel, thanks to the gauze pad, stuffed into my upper cheek just above the infected tooth on the lower jaw. The pad was small enough to fit in my mouth, but large enough to press constantly against the cheek tissue from 10 AM to 2:30 PM that day only to my surprise. The gauze was very irritating to my inner cheek, and swelling began at 11 AM. By 2 PM, to the point the swelling of my cheek tissue was pushing against and almost over my lower teeth. By 2:30 PM, a hole broke through the blister on its own and the puss began seeping out. (Read below for the full story). To say I was pleased this worked was an understatement, as I was about to give up.

REMEDY INGREDIENTS:

If you have an tooth abscess and a cyst filled with puss in your cheek, try this:

1. Firm GAUZE PAD (or paper towel will work) folded near the problem tooth, against the cheek with the swelling and puss pocket. Gauze or paper towel absorb moisture and add constant wet pressure to the infected cheek, to help it form an outlet blister where nothing had been before the Gauze Pad was added.

2. Regular use of OIL PULLING as suggested on this site. I used Virgin Olive Oil and Canola Oil. Also, swishing with Hydrogen Peroxide and Water mix, and brushing with Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate) helps too, drawing out toxins.

3. Tumeric Capsules or Tumeric powder to reduce swelling at first. Once you put in the Gauze Pad though, any later swelling is a good sign if it's building inside your mouth's cheek tissue, gums. This indicates it's trying to for a blister to escape through, as it was unable to make it through the cavity tooth.

4. Garlic Oil soft-gels, Liver Cod Oil softgels (A and D), Vitamin C, Multi-Vitamins are helpful to your body. Vitamin A treats the skin. I took a few more than suggested.

5. Water. If you're 200 pounds, I suggest 100 Fluid ounces of water per day (under a gallon). Water reduces infection. Imagine not drinking water, how will the infection leave your body if your organs are drying out, unable to flush infection from your body? If you're thirsty, you're already dehydrated. Drink plenty of water, just don't over do it as it could kill.

6. Eggs. Eggs provide amino acids, omega fatty acids, protein, vitamins, etc. An egg helps provide plenty of nutrition for growth and health. Chicks thrive on the yolk especially. The yolk is key. Cooked or eat as you like.

After that, It could take as little as one day for the blister to form, or longer, depending on your intake of the ingredients. Altogether, I only used the Gauze Pad for about five hours before it opened up a blister in my inner cheek for the puss to escape. Of course, the week of taking the other ingredients no doubt played a role, but nothing sped up the process as fast as the Gauze Pad that final day to my surprise.


ORIGINAL SYMPTOMS, CAUSE and detailed SOLUTION: 7 days plus 1 day cured:

Friday night, I bit down hard on a slice of pizza, and intense, sharp pain shot down my cavity tooth. About fifteen minutes, the pain eased up mostly, but by evening that day, there would be no sleep. Throughout all day Saturday, the non-stop excruciating throbbing intensified full force, and the tooth was very sore to the touch, followed quickly by a fever including the chills, weakness, sore throat and congestion, but no vomiting or diarrhea. And I had a numb feeling on my lower lip and chin, which was slowly spreading to my right cheek.

From experience, I covered myself in heavy blankets and stuck my head over an oil filled radiator space heater, putting life on hold. Staying so hot that I "sweat out" the illness, with more water than I normally drink (2 gallons over 1 day) and plenty of replenishing vitamin C and A, D, and Calcium, with sunny side up eggs. By Sunday night at 6 PM, the fever was mostly gone; no more sore throat, weakness, chills or throbbing tooth.

Having not slept and barely eaten for two days in a row, the absence of pain allowed some shut eye, for 2 hours sprints, as I'd wake up with intense thirst. I continued drinking, but by that evening, the numbness in my face was continuing into the night, followed by swelling of my chin, and finally the right lower jaw of my face. The inflamed cheek expanded about 3/4" from where it normally rests.

Sunday throughout the entire day, I kept a warm wet compress rag held with my hand against my cheek and after seeing on EarthClinic that Tumeric reduces inflammation, I went out to the store and stocked up on the powder and the capsules (which are more tolerable to ingest). Also on pure Olive Oil for oil pulling/swishing, plenty of odorless garlic softgels, more vitamin C, cod liver oil softgels, and multivitamins.

I tried it all, and the swelling finally went down by the next morning (mostly thanks to the compress and Tumeric), but it was time to go to work with a huge Periodical Cyst/facial lump on my cheek, still filled with puss trapped under the tooth. I discovered quickly, food going into the tooth wasn't the issue, but when I first bit down on it, that caused trauma to the lower right jaw nerves, resulting in numbness and puss infection beneath the tooth root. Having no way out through the tooth, the puss found a path into my lower cheek bone and tissue. The lump was very firm, but didn't hurt much, but the pressure on my lips was heavy. I could barely smile.

That Monday, I felt very tired having not slept, and weak, so I attempted to sleep all day and continue with the treatment. By Tuesday, the swelling had not even shrunk an inch, and I had to go to work.

Continuing this all week, it finally turned to Friday night once again, and this thing was still on my face. I'm normally embarrassed by such things as this, so that night, I decided to put a GAUZE pad in my mouth to balance out the protruding bump, stuffing it just above the now swollen lower jaw. "Looks more even with my face", I thought.
Saturday morning, I could see swelling inside my cheek, so I replaced the Gauze with a new one and almost gave up as I drove up to the hospital, then decided to follow my instinct, and drove away. I was going to try and cut a hole in there and save the money. Throughout the day, I picked up groceries and shopped for foods that would feed the bones in my teeth, not sap away the calcium from them like so many junk foods. From 10 AM to 2 PM, the gauze was becoming more irritating against my inner cheek, swelling more than it had all week. At 2:30 PM, just as I got home, something wonderful happened. I tasted a very unfamiliar, salty, foul substance in my mouth. I stopped the car and glanced in the mirror, seeing a big ball of yellow-green puss sapping out of my cheek tissue just near the gum-line. Thrilled, I began spitting out over six tablespoons of puss and blood, carefully pressing on the cyst to allow more to follow out. Inside, I immediately rinsed my mouth with hydrogen peroxide/water mix, to cleanse the mouth. An hour later of this continued treatment, the lump is completely void of puss, though it is still slightly swollen having gone through such abuse. My face is back to normally thankfully and I'm convinced all that work finally paid off, mere minutes before I was going to "cut a hole inside my mouth" from the misery. Absolute relief and joy, with some apprehension it could always return.

Having learned a lesson of a lifetime, I will no longer take my teeth for granted. I have been reading much on "Curing Tooth Decay", and will eat properly once more. A man named Doctor Price, back in 1936, wrote a dental health book about various isolated villages across the world who ate rye bread, eggs, cod liver oil, butter, cheese, some greens, and milk from grass fed cows, and they were immune to tooth decay. Alternatively, he discovered that many in America, who ate mostly white bread and sugar with skim milk, suffered from many cavities and teeth that had trouble fitting in their narrow jaws, despite brushing and flossing everyday. You can find out more online with a search for "Cure tooth decay".

[YEA]  For more than 1/2 my life...Re: Post-surgery of the right armpit and beyond. In 2000 I had a cyst removed from my right pit. It was benign, the size of a grapefruit, & was an outpt procedure, Was sent home with drains & Oxy-contin. Detoxed self off that, & came through well with the drains meaning little scarring. 6 mos. later I was to return for the same procedure on the left arm, but refused as the right was beginning to swell again. Hence, SURGERY DOESN'T WORK FOR A SYSTEMIC CONDITION. What does?? Every thing mentioned in this blessed site so far! Especially the ACV-Epsom Salt, & Kosher/Sea Salt. Messy as hell, but very healing. Paper tape as well when draining, as it took me years to find a solution to ripped-off skin. Also, Curry powder which contains Turmeric, at night, but it can stain so be careful. Then, Campho-Phenique after bathing can catch new erupts early and stop them, especially in the groin area. Hot compresses of Golden Seal/Burdock/Slippery Elm herbal tea are also effective, but on thin skin they are indeed painful - had to take several shots of liquor before applying - BUT, 30 YEARS LATER THERE'S BEEN NO RECURRANCE TO THE AREA AT THE TIP OF MY COCCYX BONE. Good luck all, will write back soon...Jessy
