Hello sir,
Thanks for the query.
White bumps with slight itch can be sebaceous cysts.
These are harmless cysts and require only symptomatic treatment.
You can use hydrocortisone cream for a week.

These cysts can be removed surgically, but that is rarely needed when they are large.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Wishing you good health.

Thank you

Hello, XXXXXXX
Thanks for the follow up.
They appear due to blockadge of hair follicle, which might be age related or due to slight infection of hair follicle. It is not related to any food or drink.
If possible, kindly upload a photograph of the lesion. I may be able to help you in a better way.
Thank you

Hi.. I have a sebasceous cyst on my forehead that I am most likely going to remove. It is not (at this time) inflamed.. Its just a 'bump' with no redness at all. My primary physician gave me a script to see a plastic surgeon (considering its on my face), however, Im wondering if I should see a dermatologist first. My concern is, that although a plastic surgeon is good at 'surgery'...are they competent to treat a 'cyst' on a face...Any thoughts??

I have a huge (almost tangerine size) sebacious cyst under my belly (I am obese). It has been draining a thick bloody pus discharge. I also have three very large ones under my left armpit. How can I get rid of them forever? My doc said that it would take a years worth of antibiotics, even though he has never looked at thime.

I had a sebacious cyst removed on the back of my neck. Four days before that I started on a week course of Flucloxacillin sodium 500 gram (3 per day). Right after the end of the course I came down with a cold (flu?) very sudden. It's unusual for me to come down so suddenly. Could it be a side-effect of the course. Lowered white blood cell count?
