Let me try: Painless epidermal cysts are normally harmless and need no treatment. These appear and normally go away after a few days. But if the cysts get infected they may swell to be large enough or drain from time to time. The bumps may become a cause for embarrassment in such cases and require medical attention. You should ideally visit a dermatologist, a doctor who specializes in treating skin problems.
