Sebaceous or Epidurmal Cysts

I did an experiment recently. I have had a small sebaceous cyst (also called epidurmal cyst) on my right leg about 2-3 inches below my knee for several years. It's NOT painful, and my doctor has told me it poses NO health threat.

It's just annoying for me to have it. I already hate the look of my legs because of varicose veins and I don't like them, but short of having them surgically removed, I don't see a way out right now. But I thought maybe there is something I can do at home about this pesky little cyst.

I have been using Zeolite as a facial and also taking it internally each morning for a several months. But a few months ago, whenever I did a facial, which is usually once or twice a week, I took a little of the paste and put a dab on the cyst.

Lo and behold, it has almost completely disappeared.

I have heard of great results with people taking Zeolite who have cancerous tumors, so why shouldn't it help with a harmless sebaceous cyst? Well it did and I am thrilled.
Bonus Information for You:
A sebaceous cyst is a closed sac occurring just under the skin which contains a "pasty" or "cheesy" looking substance. A foul odor is also often present in the substance called keratin which fills sebaceous cysts. (No my leg doesn't stink - it's only when you open it up) Keratin is a protein that creates the sac of cells called sebaceous cysts. The bumps or lumps you can feel under your skin are actually the sac of cells. They are often the result of swollen hair follicles, or skin trauma.
