Tea Tree Oil for Bartholin Cyst

I apply tea tree oil with a cotton wool bud to the affected and surrounding area several times a day. I do this until it drains. This remedy has worked over 5-6 times for me! I plan to avoid tight clothing and have a hot bath at least once a week to avoid infection again. It's awfully painful and can be scary I'm thankful to have this site for guidance!.

Tea Tree Oil for Bartholin Cyst is the best treatment.

I get them periodically, 1 every 2-3 years and only Tea Tree Oil helps burst the cyst.

I use use a Tea Tree body wash but I have used the oil diluted with some coconut water. I soak some tissue and wear it in my underwear and within hours it starts to work.

Tea tree oil saved the day!!!

The first and last time I had a bartholin abscess was 7yrs ago. I didn't know what to do, so by the time I had gotten to the doctor it almost the size of a golf ball and I had to have it surgically drained.

This time I started feeling off over the weekend and woke up Monday in pain. In the shower I noticed a small marble shaped ball that was hard. It was already midday and I couldn't get to my OB until the next morning. I knew a sitz bath would help but as I researched the internet, I found many websites (including this one! ) that talked about tea tree oil. The cyst was rapidly growing so I was willing to try anything!

I took two sitz baths in a bucket in my shower. I had added about a tsp of the oil (4-5ml). I sat for about 10min once in the afternoon and once at night. I also did try a soaked cotton ball in the oil directly on the bump for about 20min. It does have a slight hot sensation but nothing compared to the pain of the cyst. Rinsing off and swabbing with some witch hazel on the area helped to soothe it. I wore a heating pad overnight to help with comfort and also took ibprophen thoughout the day.

The next day my cyst was about half the size! I saw my doctor who confirmed that tea tree oil has been known to have positive effects. He put me on 3 days of antibiotics to kill any infection and told me to keep doing the sitz Baths. I had to run errands in the afternoon so I put a soaked cotton ball down there with a pad. At 4p I checked it and it had shrunk even more and there was a discharge that had been released. So in just over 24hrs tea tree oil helped to break down my cyst. Amazing!

Tea Tree Oil for Bartholin Cysts

Wow! Tea tree oil really works! I did heat compresses for the first 2 days, using cloth dipped in warm water and a homemade heat pack. I made the heat pack by putting uncooked rice in a clean sock and heating it in the microwave for 1min. I usually massaged the wet cloth with the heat pack. I also washed and cleaned the area with warm water and soap after every compress. Then I put rubbing alcohol and neosporin on the abcess. I took a long hot shower the second night, did another compress, and went to sleep. By morning it was just ready to burst and hurt like hell

I used a cotton swab to dab tea tree oil onto the big bump. I waited about 2min, then applied a maxi pad soaked in very warm water to the area. I felt it burst! Then I massaged it with my heat pack, and swapped pads and did this until the blood flowed slower. Then I took another hot shower and put a dry maxi pad on the wound to pick up any discharge. I will continue heat compresses and tea tree oil😊

This is for anyone suffering from bartholin cysts. I have had them on and off since I was 23 i am now 27. I have tried everything serrapeptase worked great the first few tries along with 800mg ibuprofen which helps with fluid retention. Then I tried epsom salt soaks only to find that it did nothing for me. I bought some tea tree oil and which hazel but that did nothing for me. So I was reading about essential oils I found 100% tea tree oil and I put it on a cotton ball and less than 30 minutes it burst and i felt istant relief. I caution you to buy real essential oil they are more potent and they really do work. But when you use it be sure to dilute it with another oil like coconut oil because it is will burn the skin a little bit.

For the past 2 years, I had 4 Bartholin Cysts/ Abscess. The first time I had it I was so scared and went to the doctor with excruciating pain that I never felt before. Walking, sitting down is a torture. The doctor subscribe me with antibiotics and on the 4th day, it rupture own its own. The first time I had it I never did much research on how to do home treatment because at that time I am too focused with the pain I totally relied on the antibiotics.

The second time I had it, I couldn't think much because I know how painful it's gonna be so I went straight to the hospital. I was admitted for 3 days and was about to do marsupiliazation when it ruptured in the operation room right before the operation so the doc decided only to lance it. Even that is so painful.

The third time I had it I was like I am just gonna wait till it burst own its own. Without antibiotics it took longer time to burst, but the amount of pain is still, indescribable. At this stage, epsom salt/sitz bath helped me alot to relieved the pain. You could get the epsom salt at the pharmacy.

The fourth (hopefully last) was recently about 2 weeks ago. This time I decided to do home treatment and combined it with the doctor's antibiotics. I used tea tree oil at least three times a day. Just wipe it on the cyst, you will feel a tingling sensation but only for a little while. It will make you feel relieved as well for awhile. And guess what? It ruptured 2 days after I started using the tea tree oil. I recommend the australian tea tree oil as the smell is quite relaxing as well. At the same time, I took sitz bath with Epsom Salt three times a day.

Good luck! Hope this post could help you.

Tea Tree Oil for Bartholin Cyst

I don't know where I read it but tea tree oil is the best! I hadn't had a cyst in 2 years! The last 2 I had (out of 5) at the time opened on their own after a painful week. The first 3 were helped with a catheter. The most recent 2 (total 7) opened on their own with tea tree oil along with hot compresses! It opens up my scar from the catheter and drains with no pain. Just gotta follow up with hot compresses and make sure you drain it well!

I had a bartholin cyst that started about 6 days ago. I read about the tea tree oil remedies. I'm happy to say it works and saved me from the knife!

I applied tea tree oil 2x daily and took 2 sitz baths. After the 2nd bath (didn't have time to do more) on the 6th day it burst. The doctor wanted to cut it open and put a catheter in it on the 6th day. I had that procedure before and it's extremely painful so I decided to give the tea tree oil a few more days. I came home and did the 2nd bath and then applied tea tree oil and in less than a hour it started draining. Oh what a relief. I wish I knew this the 1st time.

Thanks for the great remedy it really worked. Mine grew to the size of a golf ball hanging and as it gets close to bursting it becomes VERY painful but when I applied the tea tree oil it seemed to numb the pain. It definitely did the job and the pressure is relieved. The doctor gave me antibiotics and I only took one today so I know that it was the tea tree oil. Thanks ladies.

Tea tree oil helped alot with my recurring cyst. A week of rubbing it on the labia saw good results in a week. I also cleansed internally by ingesting fresh garlic with olive oil on toast (to avoid upsetting the stomach), manuka honey in tea and acf immune booster extra strength .I may have had an infection and now I'm all better. I also avoided sex for that week as well.

How long did it take for the cyst to go away?
