Topical castor oil appl'd to hands - dev'd painful welts a few days later & immed'y discon'd use. Still have the welts wonder if it's an allergic reac?

Likely

Wheezing
Try some Benadryl spray in that area and topical cortisone like Hydrocortisone 1 % over the counter. You may also take antihistamines by mouth (like Loratadine 10 mg qd or Allegra or Zyrtec during day time) or Benadryl or Chlortrimeton at night. If significant swelling of lips or wheezing or shortness of breath go to Dr or Emergency Room ASAP.

Are castor oil packs effective on constipation?

Not really familiar

Constipation
Taking castor oil used to be recommended for constipation, but it is not healthy to take it orally in large doses. Castor oil packs might be okay, but there are side effects to castor oil, and it is definitely absorbed from the packs. See this article for more info: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/04/28/castor-oil-to-treat-health-conditions.aspx

Has castor oil ever caused a misscarriage?

Ever?

Castor_oil
It's really hard to say whether something has 'ever' happened because no one knows. Unless you have thought up something really unusual to do with the castor oil, the answer would be 'no.'

What is the dosage of castor oil to a kid of 2years?

5ml = 1 teaspoon

Medicinal_herbs
Caster oil is an old school remedy for constipation. I prefer Miralax laxative powder (1/2 capful) mixed into a favorite 6-8 oz beverage daily until soft stool is achieved (5-7 days).

Dr. Emily Ridgway answered:

Is castor oil good for sebaceous cysts?

I doubt it

Cyst
I can't imagine how this could help but there are numerous anecdotal reports of it helping sebaceous cysts to drain. Chronic sebaceous cyst frequently drain and resolve temporarily but then what recur. For recurrent sebaceous cyst the only effective treatment I have seen is excision of the entire cyst lining.
