A cyst is a closed sac filled with a cheese like greasy material, fluid or other semi solid substances. They appear in the form of white, yellow or flesh colored lumps under the skin. They form due to plugged in ducts at the site of a hair follicle on the skin. Though the cysts can appear anywhere on the body, they are more commonly seen on the face, scalp, ears, back and the scrotum.
If the cysts become injured or if there is some kind of hormonal imbalance in the body, then they can become large and infected with bacteria. Though most cysts are painless, some can cause itching as well as pain and can turn red if they become infected. Cysts are firm lumps and are usually benign and often go away once they have drained out the fluid.
5 Best Ways To Treat A Cyst
Castor oil is very good for treating a cyst. It has powerful anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and healing properties that can heal a cyst very quickly. Cut a piece of a clean rag into a small square that will cover your cyst easily. Warm some castor oil and dip the square cloth into it.
Place it on the cyst and cover it with some cotton gauze. Bandage the whole. Change the dressing again after a few hours and keep it overnight. Castor oil will soften the lump and will help it to come to a head very quickly. The cyst will drain and shrink and will go away completely after a few days.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Dip a cotton ball into some apple cider vinegar and place it over the cyst. Cover the cotton ball with some first aid adhesive band-aid and cover it with some plastic tape so that the apple cider vinegar does not ooze out. Repeat this process three times and keep it overnight. Apple cider vinegar will not only help to clear away the infection but it will also dissolve the cyst and make it vanish over a period of time.
You should take care not to scratch or try to puncture the cyst as doing so can irritate the lump and further inflame it and push the infection deeper into the skin.
Apply hot wet face cloths on the cyst for twenty to thirty minutes three times daily. The hot moisture will soothe the cyst and will stimulate the blood circulation to that area thus helping to speed up the healing process.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil has superb antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which can cure a cyst most easily. Dip a cotton ball in some tea tree oil and place the cotton on the cyst and tape it in place. Keep it overnight and in the morning apply a fresh dressing. Continuous use will make the cyst come to a head and will help it to drain quickly thus hastening the healing process.
Cut a potato into some thin slices and place two or three slices on the cyst and tape them in place with a band-aid. Keep it overnight and by morning, the moisture from the potato will make the cyst come to head and help it to drain.
