hi there, a ruptured sebaceous cyst needs to be completely evacuated and the skin apposed together and sutured otherwise it will get infected leading to scarring and may be an abscess. If is the skin deficit is too large then you may even need a skin graft to cover that area. Do take a surgeon's consult and get treated accordingly. Now for the time being you can get it cleaned with antiseptic lotion and get a light dressing on it . Try not to sit on it or put pressure over it. Take care.
