I'm sure most of you have heard of putting a dab of honey on a cyst and covering it with a bandaid over night? I tried that recently and was VERY pleasantly surprised with the results. Typically for me, a cyst will pop up, stay for a couple of weeks and no creams or potions can even make a dent in it cause it's under the skin, and then one day it'll come to a head, pop grossly and leave a horrible scar. But when I tried the honey thing for two nights, the cyst I put it on is now almost totally gone! It's just a tiny little knot I can barely feel. I have no idea why or how it works, but it does. I use raw, natural honey for the record, and trim the bandaid to be smaller.

Just wanted to throw that one out there for you home remedy fans.

Re: honey

Surprisingly, I've never heard of that!

I have a couple of cysts popping up right now; I'll try it and see what happens

I don't think the honey we have is very "natural", but I'll give it a shot anyway.

Re: honey

Manuka honey is unique as it is used for wound healing and infection - I usually use this however have not covered it as you have. I will try that.

Look up Manuka honey guys.
