How to get rid of a sebaceous cyst?

I want a sebaceous cyst removed. I m in Toronto. I think it s a sebaceous cyst. I injured myself – cut myself accidentally and I think a pimple formed there under the skin near my eyes. It feels like a pimple – it s a skin colored bump, small. I would be interested in the cost

Hi.
As per your case history of sebaceous cyst.
My treatment advice is -
1. Don't squeeze the lesion as it may worsen the condition.
2. Apply a mild antibiotic cream like fusiderm cream twice daily on it.
3. Only curative treatment is excision under local anesthesia done by a dermato-surgeon.

Thanks.

Hello, A few weeks ago, I had what appeared to be a zit on my stomach right where the waistband of my pants sit. Through showering, taking my pants on and off and general movement, I didn t realize it popped, and now looks like a dark purple sebaceous cyst. It doesn t hurt or ooze or anything like that, but how can I get rid of it?

i went to the er to have a doctor look at a bump at the base of my penis, but a little more to the right. He said it was an epidermoid cyst. It is bout the size of a pea n i can roll my finger under my skin to feel the sac im guessing. He prescribed me some antibiotics but its still there after i finished them last week. It is just a little smaller than what it was but it tends to get irritated when i keep rolling my finger under my skin to feel the bump. Is it better to have them do an injection into it, or is it better for them to jus cut it and get it??
