Hi, i`m Richard, a Veterinarian from the UK. Hopefully I can help today.
When did you first notice the cyst? Did it come up suddenly?
Will she tolerate any handling at all?
If she will not be handled, there really is very little we can do for the cyst. Obviously draining the cyst is out of question and any topical treatments would involve handling. The only suggestion I can make which may help, is to talk to your vet who may be able to prescribe a course of antibiotics to go in her water, which may help with any infection associated with the cyst. However, from your picture, it does not have the appearance of an abscess.
You are very welcome.
