Sebaceous Cysts - Underarms

Posted by

Hello Doc,

I am sitting here with iodoform gauze sticking out of my armpit from a lanced sebaceous cyst that got very irritated. I see that you have said that Ceflon is not a good idea, what about lancing and packing?

I get them under both arms very very frequently and also on my right hip, but not as frequently there. Could there be more problems since I have so many?

Chuck

Hi, Chuck.

Do you use antiperspirant deodorants?

No, I do not. I read some of your other postinigs and saw that a seb is caused by a damaged duct from the glands. But I am worried abouyt the frequency. I don't use underarm deodorant though. I used to but thought that could be a contributing factor.

Hi, Chuck.

Unfortunately, "used to" is enough. Once this condition gets started, there is enough damage to the ducts that is is self-perpetuating. I have seen cases so bad that the person had to have a total removal of the skin in the armpits and a full thickness skin graft to replace it. You might ask your surgeon. At least you would never sweat under your arms again---although that is not such a good thing.

This is so common one woud think the FDA would require the makers to at least put a warning on the label to at least let people know what they are risking to have "dry" armpits. Instead the FDA spends a significant proportion of their time trying to make food supplements only be available by prescription.

Perhaps what it will take is a class action suit to make it cost the companies more than they make selling the stuff.

I am having a problem with sebaceous cysts but not on the underarm. It caused me to be discharged from the military that it got so bad. They tried removing them 3-4 at a time. Before the healing could occur they were replaced by more. any help out there for me?

Hi, Mark.

There IS a way.

Go to the archives link I have prepared for you below and THEN, if you still have questions, write again.

As you stop having new ones, let us know of your experiences so others might be able to help themselves.

Remember that this condition is a cousin of acne and so the wellness program described will help this be resolved even quicker than the essential oils alone.

See the glossary for any unfamiliar terms.

Walt
