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?

In brief: 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.
