What are good types of antibiotics for sebaceous cysts?

Removal best

Antibiotic
Sebaceous cysts should be surgically removed with attention to removal of the seb gland that is secreting into the area. Scraping alone is often not curative. Antibiotics are used in those seb cysts that have been infected. These can be cultured and sensitivity checked to insure right antibiotic. It is important to remove the 'capsule' that forms around skin oil outside the duct system

What are the symptoms of sebaceous cysts on your skin?

Mobile mass attached

Cicatrix
Sebaceous cysts originate within the skin and are therefore attached over the mass. There is a layer of fat underneath the cyst that makes them movable. If the cyst ruptures under the skin, scar tissue forms and can initiate an inflammatory response. This will reduce their mobility and make them more difficult to remove.

What type of ovarian cyst when ruptured can be mistaken with appendicitis?

Corpus luteum

Ovarian_cyst
The most common would be the corpus luteum cyst, that which can develop in an ovary after egg delivery. However, any cyst which ruptures into the abdominal cavity can cause irritation of the pelvis and right lower quadrant, and is in the differential diagnosis of RLQ pain in a female. good luck.

Hello, I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst, which is causing me alot of pain and making nauseous.Does this type of cyst have to be removed? and how?

Most often not

Open-uri20130517-30366-zh1lv3
Functional ovarian cysts don't need treatment and often go away on their own in 6 - 12 weeks. If you have frequent cysts, birth control pills can be prescribed to reduce the risk of new cysts. Rarely, surgery may be needed to remove the cyst or ovary to make sure its not cancer. Complex ovarian cysts & cysts causing symptoms that don't go away plus very large cysts are often surgically removed.

Does a dermoid ovarian cyst always include hair, teeth, skin etc? Just had one removed and doc said it needed to come out, why would that be?

Usually

Emergency_surgery
Dermoid cysts contain mature tissues and include one or more of those tissues but not all are always present. It needs to be removed because it will not go away on it's own, could possibly grow larger or even twist upon itself resulting in the need for emergency surgery. If these cysts rupture and spill their contents into the abdomen, peritonitismay develop.
