There are many different natural cures for sebaceous cysts including herbs, vitamins and homeopathic remedies. Often cysts start to go away on their own without any problems but not always. They are small lumps that begin to form under the skin but they can appear sinister and ugly. Sebaceous cysts are usually benign and nothing to worry about but occasionally, they can become infected and painful so treating them is best just in case. It’s also best to try a more natural route and to self-cure if the cyst does not seem to want to go away on its own accord. Remedies are very simple and you may even have some of the ingredients in the cupboard already.
Many people swear by tea tree oil as it has strong anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties and because cysts can become infected, tea tree oil can provide a very safe treatment.
Aloe vera has also been recommended to help heal cysts. Aloe Vera has been shown to kill bacteria and to help ease any discomfort.
You can always use a moist heat application which will be soothing and also help to bring the cyst to fruition .
It’s important to keep your immune system strong and so ensuring you get enough sleep is vital. Stress can also weaken your immune system so try to avoid any stressors that might lower your resistance to fight of any infection.
It’s always a good idea to try out some natural remedies first although it may take time, the treatment is a more gentler route. If all else fails, do take medical advice rather than to let the cyst develop a nasty side-infection.
