I have had a cyst on my face that started growing 6yrs ago. It started as a small pimple & grew slowly over the past 6yrs. the last couple yrs i have become really self consious about it. people stare @ it wherever i go. i knew it was a sebaceous cyst because my brother had one. i am self employed, have no insurance & really couldnt afford to have it surgically removed. over the past yr i have tried heat packs & needles to drain it myself, nothing worked & it seemed to get larger. i read this forum on the use of castor oil, started using it 2 days ago. Not only did look a tiny bit smaller already, a little white head formed today & i was able to remove some of the disguisting, cheese like material!!!! will keep you guys updated!!!!
