Tumeric for Bartholin cyst
Take 1,000 mg turmeric capsules orally daily until swelling subsides. It took about 5 days for me and the cyst is almost gone.
My wife has been suffering from Bartholin Cyst for a couple of years. Flare ups that lasts for weeks multiple times a year.
Very very painful. Doctors only made things worse by cutting the cyst open then squeezing and cleaning. Followed by "just enough" anti-biotics for the cyst to flare up again in a few weeks. 4 operations and 3 doctors later... still the same. She couldn't walk, move... It was horrible. Each flare up would last about a month.
Then we finally visited a Naturopathic doctor who suggested using Vitamin D3 (10,000 IU) and Colloidal Silver (I think it was like 15 drops under your tongue twice a day) and a couple of Unda Numbers.
The very next day, less than 12 hours, the cyst sorta blew it self up and disappeard within in a few days never to return.
Wow. Just simply wow. It's been more than 3 years since and still cyst free.

Oh my goodness. I have suffered from Bartholin's cyst for over 20 years. 15 years ago I had one reach the size of a grapefruit ended up in the emergency room with a marsupilization. I never had one again until about 2 years ago. The other side. Life is so cruel. 2 ruptured on own until I had enough. Another one. I called my OBGYN and told them I had an abscess. Unfortunatly it burst before I got there. When I arrived the on call student Dr. said she was concerned because it did not fully drain. She mentioned cancer. Saw my regular dr 2 weeks later she said not cancer keep an eye on it we will do surgery if needed. For one year I have had an uncomfortable not abcessed golf ball sized lump. Never went away. Dr. still insists surgury no cancer though. I am desperate feel like doctor knows less than I do about this.
I hit the internet. I have stuck tea bags in there bought essential oils epsom salt baths. You name it tried it. I found the post about vitamin e.
Only one of its kind no one has mentioned it. Poured vitamin E oil on it and the gland drained before my eyes. Not the usual burst but natural drain where the gland is. Meanwhile in the last two weeks I had a ganglion cyst (also an ailment) once again surface on my hand. I bought vitamin E capsules. Took them within 24 hours hand cyst gone. Bartholin gland 3/4 of size. Vitamin E!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOD BLESS YOU FOR POSTING!!!!!!!
I get Bartholin's Cysts, not sure if it's from my IUD or what, but I get them. I've found that applying vitamin E directly to the cyst unclogs the pores there and brings down the swelling and pain dramatically over the period of about 12 hours. Maybe I don't eat enough vitamin E- so that's also something to look into. I use a brand of vitamin E creme, it has something like 30,000 IU's in it. Works like a charm!
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!
I have light complexion and get skin rashs and irratations. When I was expecting my last child I got a small spot in the girl parts rubbed raw from an ill fitting pair of pants. It went from a raw spot to a weeping spot to a blister to a bartholin cyst.
"The Bartholin's gland is a tiny organ on each of the labia (vaginal lips), near the opening of the vagina. If the vagina were the face of a clock, these glands would be found at about 4 and 8 o'clock. Normally they are invisible. They make a small amount of fluid that lubricates the vaginal lips. If a flap of skin grows over the opening of one of the glands, the fluid backs up. It causes a round swelling called a cyst. The cyst can grow from the size of a penny to larger than an orange, although most don't get bigger than a golf ball. Cysts can be tender and hot to the touch."
I had similar incidences of this before but usually after a few days and some "set" baths it would clear up. Not so this time. When I was 7 months along Doctors did surgery to remove a golf ball piece of infection. A few months later when a similar incident happened. I was desparate to find something to clear this up. I tried everything I could think of. Finally I discovered zinc oxide ointment, which is the active white ingredient zinc diper rash ointments. Over the years I have cured many of these that could of gotten worse that the one I had surgery on. Having had that surgery left an area of scar tissue that is even more sensitive than before. I have never met a doctor that had any idea of how to treat these and I can't believe I am the only women to have this experence. Apply to the affected area when you go to bed.
Frequently it will be cleared up in the morning. The zine oxide stains everything though. The zinc needs to be applied liberally to the sore spot, keeping it completely covered. Then wear an under garment that you dont like, that isn't tight. I was twenty eight when I discovered this remedy. I am now in my 50's. Straight zinc oxide is the best. The diaper rash crean is usually about 40 % zinc.
