Surgery For a Sebaceous Cyst I had a cyst removed from my armpit eight months ago. I have already used some oral antibiotics and a cream (Fucidin) as per the directions.But still I can see some white boils on the wound and colour is still red.Is this a no

Go back

Antibiotics
Either there was another cyst or the surgery failed to remove it completely. No antibiotic and no cream will have any effect. There is more cyst still there.

There

There may be recurrence if the entire cyst wall has not been removed at the time of the first procedure. Another possible explanation is a condition called hiradenitis suppurativa where multiple lesions appear and usually on both sides. A dermatologist might help.
