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 Tinactin [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.

Guess what? The main ingredient in that medicine is undecylenic acid, an organic unsaturated fatty acid, directly derived from castor oil!
