    You could try to put on a small amount of vaseline or hydrocortisone cream, but be careful, especially if the wound has not closed properly.

    My son had a mole removed a couple of months ago, and his dermatologist said to be sure to apply petroleum jelly to the area to help with the itching, and, as a side benefit, she said the stitches would be easier to remove.

    don't scratch
    neosporin has petrolatum in it (vaseline petroleum jelly)
    i would continue to use it

    also too, throw on an ice pack every so often that will help any inflamation and itch.

    ya ya sure you had a cyst......i bet she did hit you with a frying pan!!!
    be well my friend.
