I've got a hard, big pimple. It's a sebaceous cyst, and i heard castor oil can remove it. Is it true?

2 doctors agree

In brief: No

Sebaceous cysts must be removed surgically.
There are some tricks that can be used to minimize scarring but there is no creme, oil or ointment that will eliminate them.
