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.

I have now been applying the Vitamin E oil regularly - about once or twice a day. I just put a drop or two on my finger tip and rub it onto the spot on my son's abdomen. It is pretty much completely gone. All that is left is a little light red mark on his skin, but the bump underneath is gone. Thank you earth clinic!

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.

Dear Orange,

Frankincense essential oil has been very helpful to my family for cysts. It is gentle and can be used on broken skin. It can be hard to find 100% but I think Now sells one that is 25% Frankincense so it is already diluted and ready to use.

Charcoal poultices may also be helpful to draw out infection. They help inflammation and pain. You could try them overnight when you aren't moving much--maybe wear some type of bike shorts to hold the poultice on?

Turmeric internally, a teaspoon a couple of times a day may also help a surprising amount.

I hope you get some relief soon. Let us know how it goes.

Hi Orange, when I get cysts I treat them from the inside and the outside. They come from the inside, but they make it to the outside so I find they need be be tackled from both sides. On the outside I use zinc oxide ointment, several applications a day as needed. Slather it on and cover with a band-aid if need be, depends on the location. You can also put a panty-liner in your clothes for the area. For the inside I take probiotics before bed and turmeric with meals. That's what works for me.

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
