I keep getting a recurrent cyst in my labia that won't pop and its very painful when its there. It comes and goes every few months. What's causing it?

Washing carefully and keeping the vulva free of oils and irritating soaps will help prevent the recurrances. Sometimes the cyst has to be permanently opened in a minor surgical procedure called marsupialization of the Bartholin's gland. ...Read more
