I have had a small milia on my right eye for about 6 months. I have been putting Castor Oil on it, and it is gone. I put the Castor Oil on it with the intent that the Milia goes away, and viola! It went away! It took a long time, about 6 months, but no medicine and no Doctor!

I have a bump near my eye that randomly popped up about 6 months ago. 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!

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. I took a q-tip with some castor oil and applied it to my eyelid. The next morning the bump (sty) was no longer there.

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.

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?

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

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.

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.

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!

Hi I am very interested in your post about taking clay tablets for the shrinkage of cysts... Was this for a Baker's cyst behind the knee... If so how long did it take to shrink?
I have one behind the knee that is causing me a lot of pain right now... The pain is intermittent but am anxious to find a home remedy that really works... Thanks so much for sharing what worked for you!

I have a sebaceous cyst in my scalp due to over production of sebum. After taking clay tablets will it heal my cyst, if yes, how should I take clay tablets what are the doses?

Dandelion and Viola  

Posted by Heather (Ny) on 01/22/2012

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  

Posted by Snehanshu (Kolkata, Westbengal) on 04/22/2013

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.

Regards, Snehanshu

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:

DMSO 70%
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.

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.

Very helpful advice. I had Bartolin's cyst which had gone to abscess stage, had to sit down, walking painful; I took homeopathic thuja 30, sliica 6, had hot bath, prayed that any bitter feelings I was holding on to would come out. I had a night of quite intense emotional pain and hey presto in the morning the cyst broke/ antibiotics!

Afterwards urination was very painful, open wound really. The doctor advised antibiotics but am using colloidal silver to stem infection. There's also a homeopathic mix you can get from Helios pharmacy Uk which fights infection. The doctor suggested holding a wet flannel over the painful area where cyst had broke to make peeing less painful, stopping urine going over the infected place.

I have used a few methods of dealing with surface cysts and below skin cysts. I say cysts; but I "lump" fatty tumors; cysts of mass as well as fluid in a single group.

I first want to make sure the cyst is not caused by infection or accompanied by infection. So I place on the site a poultice of colloidal silver mixed with DMSO. I let that sit for fifteen minutes on the surface.

I have also used a charcoal poultice and a turpentine poultice. I mix the turpentine with DMSO and colloidal silver. The turpentine is caustic so I don't put too much on skin for too long.

I've used Healing Clay. Not as a poultice. I just put a half spoonful of the clay with colloidal silver and then place the "goo" onto the site. I let dry.

All the above I repeat many times.

JUST in the past three days I found a number of "nodules" on my chest wall. They were sore and the size of a pencil eraser. I used the colloidal silver and turpentine plus DMSO on day one. Day two I used colloidal silver with tea tree oil and DMSO as a poultice and then did a colloidal silver with turpentine and DMSO poultice. The nodules covered an area about the size of three by four inches.

In only two days the sensitivity is down by 80 percent and the size of the five or six nodules is reduced by over half. I theorize I had an infection perhaps in my lymph glands. I will continue this poultice application for a month.

Ear Cyst Remedies  

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.

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  

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.

Replied by Joy

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.

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.

I had a cyst on my forehead, for the last 4 years, the size of a green pea.

Last night (2016/09/09) at 2:30AM, I crushed a clove of garlic and applied it on my cyst and around it. I held the crushed garlic in place with scotch tape. It burned quite a bit for half an hour. I went to bed with the garlic and scotch tape in place.

7 hours later, I woke up and looked at my forehead. Under the scotch tape, the crushed garlic had turned green overnight.

I removed the scotch tape and garlic.

To my great surprise, the cyst had COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED. A small puncture mark was left, probably due to where the liquid was drawn out by the garlic.

Also redness of the skin; better than that cyst that reminds you of witches.

I am on a waiting list to get a family doctor. I should be waiting another 4 years to get one.

That is the reason I tried the garlic treatment and it WORKS.

This is cool report. Thank you! Did you have any skin damage from the raw garlic straight on your skin (other than the burning after you first applied it.) Do you think it would work to put some olive oil on the skin before the garlic to protect the skin from the garlic?

Thanks again.

I have a cebacious cyst on my back and tried a crushed garlic clove on it but it stung and burned my skin (I have sensitive skin). I'm now using a turmeric paste which is slowly but surely flattening the cyst.

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?

Replied by Jen

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.

Replied by Yow_whaz_up

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.

Is it possible this is a torval cyst? I think I have one. Very weird. One moment I was right as rain no problem, then I bent forward to hoover the carpet and my back went, was in agony and found it hard to stand or move for ages. The day after someone noticed I have a round bump in the middle of my lower back, tender and fluidy well under the skin. I still have back pain and feel it is caused by that. Yet it was not there before or was smaller with no prob lems before. Torval cysts can appear after a trauma or can become fluidy and painful after one.
