Discussion in 'All Categories' started by Chathu - Dec 14th, 2011 8:35 pm.
I had a cyst on my armpit a couple of years ago. I went to a doctor,he adviced me to remove it surgically. Surgery was done four months ago.One month after the surgery I went to the doctor because of the pain.Now I have already followed some oral antibiotics and a cream. but sometimes it gives me a pain and the colour of the wound is still red, sometimes i can see pus coming out when i put pressure on the wound.How long will it take to heal completely.Will there be any problem if i use deodorants again . please advice me

Dear Chathu

In our opinion this is a case of recurrence and you may need another surgery if antibiotics does not help.

A sebaceous cysts are a phrase that loosely refers to either epidermoid cysts or pilar cysts (also called trichilemmal. Because an epidermoid cyst originates in the skin along with a pilar cyst arises from hair follicles, by definition, neither type of cyst is strictly a sebaceous cyst.] The name is regarded as a misnomer as the fatty, white, semi-solid material in both of those cyst entities isn't sebum, but keratin. Furthermore, underneath the microscope neither entity contains sebaceous glands. Used, however, the terms in many cases are used interchangeably.

The typical outpatient surgical procedure for cyst removal would be to numb the area round the cyst with a local anaesthetic, then to use a scalpel to spread out the lesion with whether single reduce the middle of the swelling, or perhaps an oval cut on sides of the centerpoint. If the cysts are small, it may be lanced instead. The individual performing the surgery will squeeze out the keratin (the semi-solid material consisting principally of sebum and the dead skin cells) surrounding the cyst, then use blunt-headed scissors or another instrument to hold the incision wide open while using fingers or forceps to try and remove the cyst intact. If the cyst can be removed successfully, the "cure rate" is 100 percent.
