    sebacious cyst that got infected and now bald spot

    I had a sebacious cyst that became infected, swollen and throbbed for about a week. The doctor told me to take antibiotics and it would go away on its own. It drained and cleared up but all the hair in that area has fallen out. I have an enormous bald spot the size of a half dollar on the back of my head. I'm wondering if the hair will grow back?

    I had the same thing happen to me. The spot (which was the size of a quarter), did regrow hair, but it took a little while. Now you can't even tell where it was.
