How to Treat and Heal an Infected Sebaceous Gland (Nurse Reviewed)
While sebaceous cysts are mostly harmless, they are a source of annoyance, pain, and self-consciousness. The skin contains sebaceous glands that provide sebum which is a lubricating oil to keep the skin moist and healthy. When the glands are clogged by a hair follicle, the sebum builds up causing the red, puffy cyst. As tempting as it is, the solution is not to pick or pop these lesions because this makes the situation worse. Also called watchful waiting, this treatment consists of essentially just letting the cyst run its course with the help of heat to aid in circulation in the area.

To treat an infected sebaceous cyst, place a warm towel over the affected area for 10 to 30 minutes 3 to 4 times a day. Additionally, wash the skin with an antimicrobial soap and avoid putting any skin care products or cosmetics on the cyst. You can also apply 1 to 2 drops of tea tree oil every morning to help kill the bacteria and lessen any inflammation. Alternatively, rub aloe vera gel, which has antibiotic properties, on the lesion once a day.
