Sebaceous cysts removal

If you notice an innocent-looking pimple is growing and feels soft or tender to the touch, you may be experiencing a sebaceous cyst. Leaving it alone may not be a good idea, as an untreated infected sebaceous cyst can lead to complications like an abscess. And if an abscess ruptures in a body, it can lead to septicaemia or blood poisoning.

You must not attempt to pop/cut/squeeze the sebaceous cyst yourself. Please seek professional help to get it thoroughly removed. Sometimes, the cyst may require a more thorough examination.
