For many years I had cysts on my scalp. The doctor cut them out, but usually another grew in the same spot. Cutting them out is not a cure. I had a cyst that grew to be quite large. One day I noticed that it was a bit sore and tender, so it was infected. It developed a pustule on the top, that eventually broke and started oozing. I applied 3% hydrogen peroxide with a cotton tip, several times per day and for several minutes before bed. I could feel a piece of skin protruding from the edge of the cyst and gently pulled at it. This took several days, till finally a white sac popped out when I pulled. Days later, another smaller sac emerged the same way. The cyst is now gone, with no hair loss, scarring or incisions. All this in less than two weeks, and at a cost of less than a dollar! The hair and skin around the cyst got bleached a little when I was applying the h2o2, but the skin was back to normal a couple of days after I stopped. This was a couple of years ago, and the cysts have not come back.

I had a cyst below my right eye and it bothered when I slept. I could feel it and it would not go away. I went to six skin specialists including university doctors but no luck. All of them recommend surgery! I use hydrogen peroxide to clean fruits and veggies. One day I thought I would try some on my cyst since h2o2 is good for the skin too. Within a week you could barely see it. And now, a year later, my skin is smooth and scar free!

Hi, I'm from Perth Western Australia. Where can I get 35% Food Grade H2O2?

Hello Zim, in Perth, West Australia you can get 50% food grade h2o2 at several chemists, including some but not all Friendlies Chemists. Be careful, it is potent and dangerous. Double check that you dilute it correctly, it is 50% not 35%.

I got "35%" from nightingale pharmacy in south lake, after using it or a few weeks and having no improvements, I put 1 drop on my skin, knowing it should oxidize, nothing at all. So I ordered H2O2 test strips, and after testing a diluted solution I've determined I was sold 3% I'll be heading back to nightingales and demanding they refund my money. Will be trying a supplier on eBay.

Hi there, I just found this site, i am from perth also which makes me really exictied about finding this site based in w.a. I'm going to spend the nest couple of weeks studying this site! In the meantime I just had a question about using hydrogen peroxide for removing cysts. I was just wondering when you apply it topically to the cyst, how diluted should it be? I have a sebaceous cyst on my forehead that I would really like to remove without surgery. I'm hoping this will work for me. Any advice would be great, thank you so much.

In reply to Ana of Perth, Australia. The Hydrogen Peroxide link at the top of this page has details on its application. In the comments above one visitor used 3% H2O2 directly. I would suggest using 1% or 3% and monitoring how you go.

Applied for 3 consecutive days, 2/3 times a day on a small cyst on my face, and on the end of the third day, it popped out. The skin around was a bit damaged, but nothing a good moisturizer can't fix
