Hi three years ago i had a bump on my head that was the size of a quarter. I found out it was a Sebaceous Cyst. Throught the years i had no pain or nothing bothering me. Yes going for haircuts bothered me because my hair dresser would notice it. So i decided to get it removed which was a good year and a half to wait. I thought that was to long so i read up on a few home remedies. I read about castor oil and how it was suppose to help get rid of these. Lots of heat and a total devotion of an hour each day. Well i thought i would try it. So with cold pressed castor oil rubbed on the cyst and a cloth soaked in castor oil and plastic ,i put it over the cyst. Then with a heating pad i let it stay on for a good hour each day . I endured some pain each day but is seemed to lessen the more it did it. I then decided after two weeks to add some apple cidar vinegar to the cloth which also helped. well it was a good three weeks later that the bump on my head started to lower and took a concave look to it,sinking in the middle. I thought well at least somethings going on. A few days after that i was on my couch and i noticed a hot burning sensation and i went into the washroom to take a look and noticed the cyst was starting to drain . So i thought i might as well try to clear it out which i did. I just pushed down on the cyst and it completely drained out. My cyst was flat but then i realized i was not done yet. I had to get the pea size cyst out of it which was easy. Pressing both sides of the cyst i pushed up the pea size cyst and was free of my troubles. All i could see now was a little tiny pin hole and that was it. I cleaned up the cyst with anti bacteria cloths and then continued to use polysporin for the next two weeks at night time on it. I noticed the hair grew back and the cyst size shrunk all the way from a quarter to nothing. I needed no stiches and there was no infection so it turned out great.
