Have had a Bartholin cyst for several months now-before today it was less than the size of a grape and not painful or even uncomfortable. Today it swelled up to the size of a walnut and became very painful to sit down on or walk with. I had previously tried tea tree oil, compresses with water and tea bags, and apple cider vinegar, and none of it worked (though the tea tree oil softened it a bit for a while). I had some witch hazel pads leftover from when I gave birth a couple years ago, and so I put one on the cyst hoping it would at least soothe it a bit. Within a few minutes the pain was almost gone, and when I went to check it ten minutes later I couldn't even feel where the cyst had been. This was from a pad that was almost completely dried out. Luckily my mom had a bottle full of witch hazel, so I reinvigorated my pads and put another one on. Going to keep using it for a few days to be sure it stays gone, but I am absolutely thrilled that this worked so quickly. Wish I had used them several months ago when I first found the cyst!
