cyst by my eye

Dear Dr Stoll,

Around this time last year I had a sebaceous cyst
removed from my shoulder, my doctor did it properly
and it's healed well. I started on the essential oils you
recommend in an effort to prevent getting any more,
and after a few months my acne, which I also suffer
from, improved a lot so I knew it was doing some good.

I lowered the dose every few months, and then my acne
started to get worse again so I've been through the
whole process and have now stopped at the correct
dose for me.

The only problem is that I've just discovered a small
new cyst beside my eye, near my temple. I can't see it
unless I scrunch up my eye but I can feel the hard little
bump under the skin. I'm hoping that this developed
when I went too low with the essential oils and now that
I've found my correct dose I won't have any more. I'm
just a bit nervous about when the time comes to have
this one removed as the skin around the eye is so thin.
Do you think I will have any problems with this?

I know it is a bit premature to be thinking about this now
but I've read that they almost always grow bigger
eventually. How big sholud I let it get before having it
removed?

I'd be very grateful if you could help me with this. Thank
you for a wonderful website.

~Jennifer

Thanks, Jennifer.

This probably did start when your dose got too low. It takes a little more to prevent recurrent sebaceous cysts than to help acne.

Once you are sure that the increased dose does not make the cyst go away, surgical removal should be considered. The larger it is (in this location) the harger to remove it without a disfiguring scar.

Let us know how you do.

Walt
