I have a sebaceous cyst on mons pubis near labia mayora. Yellow bloody draining is occurring on its own. Should I let it drain on its own? What to do?

I have a sebaceous cyst on mons pubis near labia mayora. Yellow bloody draining is occurring on its own. Should I let it drain on its own? What to do?

Cyst: Yes. Continue to let it drain on its own. It is best to place warm compresses on the area for 20 minutes at a time, at least 3-4 times per day, which will encourage the drainage. If it spreads, worsens, gets red or hot, or if you get a fever, you should see a doctor, as then you may need help to get it to drain. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have a pea sized red bump with a yellow centre on my inner labia minora.  Pimple or sebaceous cyst? It popped but the yellow centre came back.

Cyst?: A recurrent lesion like this, if in the same spot each time, suggests a cyst, e.g. a blocked sebaceous or mucus gland. (You seem to ve aware of this possibility, since you selected 3 different kinds of cyst among your topic tags.) Best to see a doctor; minor surgery (opening it to drain, perhaps cautery) probably would prevent future recurrences. ...Read more

Unclear: I see from your patient information that you have genital warts, sometimes condylomas (warts) can grow on the labia majora.
