My gyno confirmed I have a sebaceous cyst on my outer labia. It's unsightly! can my dermatologist treat it? How quickly can she get me back to normal?

If your dermatologist does surgical procedures, they can probably take care of it; otherwise, a general surgeon or plastic surgeon is your choice.

Best way to get rid of boils/cysts from labia lips and boils from breasts?  They don't hurt an i don't know u got them till i wash myself or check.

A boil is typically an infection, a cyst may or may not be, thus treatment is different for each. But definitely get an exam as wouldn't want to miss anything important. Good luck! ...Read more
