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.

I've got a hard, big pimple. it's a sebaceous cyst, and I heard castor oil can remove it. is it true?

No

Sebaceous cysts must be removed surgically. There are some tricks that can be used to minimize scarring but there is no creme, oil or ointment that will eliminate them.
