Sebaceous cyst on scalp, burst, scab formed, white fluid, started leaking. Treatment?
I have a sebaceous cist on my scalp that burst just over a week ago, my doctor said he can see a scab and that it should be fine unless it becomes infected. It is in the very back of my head so I cannot see it but I can feel it, it s quite tender, the scab is still there but it s often sticky. I think the scab is still attached to the gooey white stuff inside and that it s just slowly leaking out or started to leak then got stuck. Should I go back or am I worrying too much??
If this is Sebaceous cyst then it needed surgical removal or electrocautry to remove..consult your dermatologist, he will advice appropriately..Medicine will not be effective in this condition except unless it is infected.
