If you had a ruptured sebaceous cyst that is now healed and shows no signs of infection, such as redness or tenderness, then you do not need any medication at this time. At this point, you may want to wait to see if the cyst recurs and, if it does, have it removed. Your other option is to have the area where the cyst was removed now, in effort to prevent future recurrence.
