Healing of removed sevaceous cyst

Had the cyst surgically removed nearly a month ago and a stitch and scab removed 3 weeks ago but it left a hole that doesn't seem to be healing very fast, even with antibiotics.  It's hard to contact the doctor due to covid closures.  How long does this take to heal?

Update.  Saw a doctor today.  The cyst wound is healing well but could take another month or more.  I had no idea it may take 2 to 3 months to heal from an excised cyst.

I’m having a similar issue just had 2 cysts removed and I believe they are either starting to come back or the wound is taking longer to heal than I thought even with antibiotics. It’s very frustrating, mine did not leave a hole though just looks stitched up. It’s been 2 months since surgery for me, I hope your wound heals soon!
