In brief: Bartholins cyst

Bartholins cysts take up to two weeks to heal.
It will get better faster once it opens and drains and this often requires a doctor to make an incision. If you want to avoid that I would sit in warm water 2-3 times a day for 20 min and use warm compresses. I'm sorry, they can be quite painful.
