Does Bartholin cyst just go away in time ?? Does abscesses go away in time?? Can I put it cold compress ??

Warm compresses: Warm compresses are better than cold to help the cyst drain. Bartholin's gland cysts sometimes go away on their own but sometimes they have to be surgically drained and packed in order to heal up. Any abscess that does not drain fully may need to be surgically opened and drained to resolve. If it is not resolving with warm soaks and compresses see a doctor. ...Read more

Heat packs and time: Healing is promoted by blood flow which can be enhanced with warmth and continued good health and exercise. Don't smoke and give it some time. Your body will reabsorb the fluid. Some compression to the area or a pillow to lift your bottom when you're sleeping may help the fluid travel back up. Good luck! ...Read more

Infected?: A Bartholin gland is usually "lanced" when it's infected. This treats the infection, but the gland stays in place, and in these cases there is a very high chance of the gland enlarging and becoming bothersome again (not necessarily infected). The best time to completely remove an enlarged Bartholin gland is when it is not infected, so you may try for a more complete excision at this point. ...Read more

Is there anything I can get from the grocery store or drug store for my Bartholin's abscess or cyst until I can see a doctor?

Is there anything I can get from the grocery store or drug store for my Bartholin's abscess or cyst until I can see a doctor?

NO,NO: The treatment can depend on one or more of these factors: the size of the cyst, how painful it is, if it is infected, and the patient's age. In some cases, a small cyst can simply be observed over time to see if it grows. In other cases, the doctor can perform a minor procedure in the office, in which a small tube is inserted into the cyst]and inflated to keep it in place. ...Read more

What can I use for Bartholin's abscess or cyst if I don't have a doctor?

What can I use for Bartholin's abscess or cyst if I don't have a doctor?

Need to see someone: An abscess will not resolve on its own and needs to be opened up and drained. Otherwise, there is the risk of the infection spreading and becoming more serious. Applying heat to the area will help by promoting circulation and possibly cause cyst to burst and contents to drain, but you still need antibiotics. Keep area clean and put antibiotic ointment until you see someone. ...Read more
