I have a sebaceous cyst on my upper back that was raised about a half inch off the skin and was approximately an inch across. About a year ago, it got badly infected and I did research online for natural/non-surgical remedies and found information to support the use of tea tree oil and aloe vera. After the infection cleared, I started dabbing tea tree oil on the cyst and I was also using aloe vera on it and the surrounding area because my skin was badly irritated from the tape I had been using with bandages. I did this for a couple of weeks and then admittedly slacked off on doing this. Within a couple of months, the cyst size had diminished to the point that it wasn't really raised above the skin and I had to press on my skin to feel it. I had told my new primary care physician about the cyst and was referred to a specialist to have it removed. I went to see the specialist this morning and she said that the cyst wasn't well-defined enough for her to feel comfortable removing it. I highly recommend this regimen as a natural/non-surgical remedy.
I purchased Tea Tree (Melaleuca) Essential Oil. 10 ml. 100% Pure, Undiluted, Therapeutic Grade and Aloe Farms Aloe Vera Gel Organic, 32-Ounce on Amazon.com. The 32 ounces of aloe vera was significantly more than I wanted, but it was the smallest size of organic, pure aloe vera gel, with no other added ingredients, that I could find.
