It has to have specific indications in order to be used. In order to be able to help you better, can you please fill me up with the following information please:

  • How long has it been there
  • How big is it, a lemon size, pea etc.
  • Is it painful and does it cause any problem
  • Is it evenly raised
  • Any other illness
  • Any treatment taken

I’ll wait for your reply.

Thanks for the additional information that I had sought.

  • To me it appears that it could be a small sebaceous cyst building up since it is just a month old as it matches all the characters that you have provided.

  • Had it been a long standing thing, then it could have been a dermoid.

  • I am so happy that you have no other problem and this problem is rather very simple.

  • This problem does not require any medicines or antibiotics, unless it becomes painful or inflammed, which is not the case here.

  • Whenever you are willing, you may consult your doctor and after performing some routine urine and blood tests, this may be excised.

I hope I have been able to provide you the informtion that you needed, and some more.

Best wishes.
