Castor oil has not been shown to cause hair growth. There are some medications that may help but you have to be seen by your doctor to get these prescriptions.

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.
