The Bartholin's duct cyst--abcess sometiimes can be opened and drained, but many times, to prevent it from returning the gland is surgically removed completely under anesthesia.

How to treat a bartholin cyst abscess?

Antibiotics

If antibiotics do not work or the gland becomes infected again, then incision and drainage is appropriate.

Does oral sex cause the bartholin cyst abscess?

Probably not!

After_sex
Got me there! I din't think so, but there are no published papers suggesting that oral sex causes these cysts. There are factors asuch as diabetes, weight issues that are far more important!

Where to find doctor that is using carbon dioxide laser for the treatment of bartholin cyst?

Gyn oncologists

Co2
Most general gynecologists don't dabble in lasers. They are primarily used for vulvar and vaginal dysplasias. A gynecologic oncologist would most likely have "laser privileges". But bartholin's cysts are readily treated with traditional methods, and I'm not sure how a CO2 laser would improve upon that.

Does a bartholin cyst sometimes accompany herpes outbreak? Awaiting results on herpes test but also hard tender abscess near left vag opening

Bad luck

Sorry to hear that! Quite annoying and painful. One doesn't usually cause the other directly. You will likely need to have the cyst incised and drained by your OB/GYN, ER, or FM doc. They will probably pack it so it will be able to drain. They CAN come back--hopefully not! Good luck!

Looking for a find doctor that is using carbon dioxide laser for the treatment of bartholin cyst. Let me know if you are doing it or know who does.

Not common

That is a not a common approach to the treatment of a Bartholins cyst. You will likely have to contact doctors in your area and ask this specific question of their office staff
