Lumps on your neck and body are generally normal. However, at the same time, they can certainly cause worry, especially when you don’t know what they are or why they have suddenly appeared. Not all lumps are normal, but most of them are relatively harmless.
One of those that is harmless is a lump that suddenly appears on the back of your neck, on your back or behind your ear. This is a type of cyst called epidermoid cysts, which differ from the sebaceous variety. Sebaceous cysts develop because of the sebaceous glands, which lubricate the hair and skin.
Although epidermoid cysts don’t need treatment, most people who develop them will probably want to remove them because they are unattractive and can lead to an infection. Removing these types of cysts is easier than dealing with other types of medical conditions because they can be eliminated through natural methods. Here are a few natural things you can use to eliminate an epidermoid cyst.
Apple Cider Vinegar:
Apple cider vinegar is a great product to use for treating a wide variety of ailments. It contains infection healing properties and can protect you against harmful bacteria. Apply some vinegar directly to your cyst and bandage it for protection. It is recommended to do this every day for one week until a hard layer of skin develops over the cyst. Afterward, remove the hard layer and then drain the cyst. Reapply apple cider vinegar to the area for one more week.
Use a teaspoon amount of a mixture of dandelion and viola. Add to water and boil for approximately 45 minutes. Strain the mixture afterward and drink it or apply it directly to the cyst. Repeat four times per day for 10 days.
Take a hot bath and add Epsom salt. The reason this works well is that Epsom salt is a substance that is good for relieving pain and bringing down swelling.
Rub some aloe vera directly on your cyst. It will help to eliminate it in no time. You can also drink aloe vera gel to remove the cyst.
Soak a tea bag in milk and place the bag directly on the cyst overnight. Milk is known for reducing the size of lumps and for speeding the healing process.
A mixture of honey, banana and wheatgrass is also a good salve to apply to the cyst to shrink and remove it. Cover it with a bandage after applying the combination and let it sit all night.
Apply castor oil directly onto your cyst and cover it with a hot bag of water or a cloth. Do this regularly until you see results.
For best results in eliminating your epidermoid cyst, you should try at least a few of these natural home remedies. After some time, you will notice the cyst has shrunken and drained. You will be on your way to completely removing it and having new healthy skin back in its place.
