OB GYN Doctor: Dr David, Doctor replied 7 months ago

I am sorry you have this bartholin cyst

you should alternate a warm and cold towel compress on the area to help decrease swelling and pain there.

you may have an infection in the bartholin's cyst

you may need to see a doctor to get a course of antibiotics

in some cases, these cysts have to be drained to allow the infection to drain out.

I would try the warm towels and compresses first

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
