Follow the directions carefully and don't overdose the amount, and wear gloves when applying it. Cysts shouldn't really cause any major problems, except for the pain & lack of sleep and this should solve that. ...Read more

Hello, I have a dermoid cyst on my ovary and the size is 2.8x 2.6x 3.1. Is this big enough to get removed?

Mature teratoma: It does not require removal at this size, although dermoids will need to be removed at sometime in the future. It is a benign tumor that can grow quite large over years, and is much more easily removed when small to mid-size. They do not "go away on their own." Many Gyn surgeons would remove it for you at this size: discuss with doctor you trust what's best for you. Good wishes ...Read more

2 warts on the bottom+side of big toe. I have been going at it with a scalpel trying to get the roots out but they keep getting bigger. They hurt?

Do not scrape...: In your attempt to get to the root of the problem by scraping the virus away, you are actually spreading the virus. Warts thrive on the foot, in part, because of the increased moisture. You must dry or dehydrate the surrounding skin before debridement can work. There are various solutions that will do the job. Consult with a foot specialist for the various options. ...Read more

Hello, I'm trying to get rid of or mitigate a big red bump on my forehead that seems to be cystic acne. Is there any treatment that could help?

Grieving Time: Hello,
Once you get a big one, my recommendation is to first GRIEVE as this lump is likely not going away in the next 48 hours. This grieving process will decrease stress and prevent the downward spiral.
Then, attack it with full fury with hot compresses many times a day and dry it up a bit. You also have the option of a cortisone injection. Better prevention is key.
