Try peeing (midstream) into a jar. Wet a cotton ball or gauze or ? and put it on the cyst with a band aid. Keep doing this whenever you can. Do this for a few days and see if cyst goes down. It usually softens and brings down cysts on the skin. First time you try it do it right before you go to sleep and in the morning see if the cyst changes. Keep doing it for a week and noticing changes. It doesn't matter if the cyst if broken..... maybe it might burn a bit if skin is broken..... I don't know. The other remedy you might try is half tea tree oil and half lavender oil. It works on keloids so maybe on the cyst. Good luck.
Tried Vicks Vapor Rub on all 6 cysts for a week. Nothing happened. Oh, it's never worked for my congestion either.
Vicks Vapor Rub
Following (necessary) abdominal surgery five years ago, I developed a deep cyst (began 1/2 inch under the skin) at the incision site -- on a whim put Vick's on it for 3 days and the contents moved up through the tissue. 3-4 days later it came to a head (was a real medical event!) Cleaned repeatedly with alcohol, never recurred.
5-6 days ago I found a small lump in my breast, at about an inch under the surface. Hit the Vicks again and after a day and a half it started moving up, came up to various ducts at the surface -- completely gone where I had felt a solid lump. Then no movement for a couple days, a little uncomfortable. Put organic progesterone cream on it and it appears to be gradually working but I'll try some other things to move it along, thanks to this site.
Really I think it is a disgrace that this kind of quick no-harm preliminary tactic is not widely known and medically advised. I understand dog breeders are using Vick's on cysts -- why in the world don't we hear about it??!
I have sebaceous cyst in groin area, right where the leg meets torso, right where the panties rub against the skin. Had one couple of years ago. Went to dermatologist, done biopsy, said it' s not dangerous, just the location of it so gross. It went away itself after I gave up undies that where aggrivating it. Now it cameback a slightly lower, it is infected at the moment and hurts sometimes. Recently it broke as result of underwear and a always pad rubbing it while shopping groceries.I read almost all posts, was happy to find about castor oil, but the article here says it cannot be used on broken skin. The cyst is broke recently, but drained a little, most of the puss is inside. I don't even try to sqeeze it as it is really painful. my question is: can vitamin E oil be applied on broken cyst? I also have one in my armpit. These two appeared almost at the same time. The one in armpit doesn't bother me much, it's almost gone by now. I used to apply eucaliptus essential oil, but not sure if it did help. But the one in groin bother me a lot as I can't wear panties, they rub just right at cyst which aggravates it great deal. Thinking to get boy style shorts type underwear now although I don' really like them. Another problem is it' s really hard to fix a band aid in that area when applying ointments. Luckily, I work from home, so I can wear something without underwear, but still have to go outside sometime... Found one article about bloodroot salve that seems to help a lot, but not sure if such strong remedy is required as the cyst is about the size Of pea. If anyone have any info, it will be appreciated.

My 7 month old son developed a benign cyst just under the skin in the lower abdominal area. It appeared suddenly and within a week grew to tthe size of 5mm and became very red. There was no head to the cyst so I knew that it was not like a pimple. We took him to the doctor who then sent us for an ultrasound and then when he got the unltrasound results, he sent us to a plastic surgeon. I didn't want to put my baby in for surgery, yet I knew that if it got infected it could be bad, since I myself had that experience about 10 years ago and had to go into emergency surgery for a cyst on my back.
Anyway, I read here that Vitamin E oil could help so I bought a high quality natural vitamin E Oil (32, 000 iu) and rubbed it gently into the area of the cyst on my son several times a day. I have now been applying it for about 6 weeks and the cyst is almost completely gone. Now when I rub I feel a teeny bump inside that is smaller than 1mm, but it is getting smaller every day and I am fairly confident it will disappear altogether.There is still a red spot on the skin, but that seems to be getting dry sort of like a scab and I am guessing that will go away completely in time. Thank you for the posts about the vitamin E oil!!!! It worked to prevent surgery for my baby boy!! I hope my post can help others too.
After finding a lump in my breast, rushing to a doctor, I was told that I needed to find a surgeon, before a scan was even taken. After the scan, I was informed that it was merely a cyst and I could either have it aspirated with a needle, or just leave it, as it would cause no harm. I left it alone, and remembered being told that vitamin E can cause cysts to go away. It worked and when the cyst came back a year later, I went straight to the vitamin E bottle, and next doctor appointment, there was no signs of the cyst.I take it continually now. I am currently taking vitamin E (as d-alpha Tocopheryl Acetate) 1000 IU, but if I recall, I was taking 400 IU when my cyst dissolved
