Does clarithromycin help cure sebaceous cyst infection?
I have an infected sebaceous cyst that has been drained. The site is finally starting to close but there is still drainage and if I press on it, there is a small amount of pus. I just started taking Clarithromycin for a sinus infection...will this help with the sebaceous cyst infection?
Hi, Recurrence of infected sebaceous cyst is very common. At present antibiotic you are taking will give temporary relief from infection but recurrence is likely. Consult surgeon and get cyst excised with sac to get complete cure. Ok and take care.
