HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR SEBACEOUS CYST
This is a condition where accumulation of a cheese-like substance is found in the outermost layer of the skin, epidermis. This is usually referred as epidermal cyst, thus its existence under the skin follows. This is primarily caused by our sebaceous glands which are known to be responsible for secreting an oily substance for our skin and hair’s lubrication. Once the action of sebaceous glands is blocked, the possibility of sebaceous cyst formation is expected. Sac formation is filled with a waxy or oily, typically cheesy substance and accompanied with an unlikely odor. Other alternative names include keratin cyst and epidermoid cyst
Epidermoid cysts can appear anywhere on the skin, but are most common on the face, neck and trunk.
Causes-The surface of your skin (epidermis) is made up of a thin, protective layer of cells that your body continuously sheds. Most epidermoid cysts form when these cells move deeper into your skin and multiply rather than slough off.
The epidermal cells form the walls of the cyst and then secrete the protein keratin into the interior. The keratin is the thick, yellow substance that sometimes drains from the cyst. This abnormal growth of cells may be due to a damaged hair follicle or oil gland in your skin.
Symptoms-Epidermoid cyst signs and symptoms include:-A small, round bump under the skin, usually on the face, trunk or neck,A tiny blackhead plugging the central opening of the cyst,A thick, yellow, foul-smelling material that sometimes drains from the cyst,Redness, swelling and tenderness in the area, if inflamed or infected
