Ladies I can't thank you enough for sharing your stories. My cyst popped up from no where I went doc's got put on antibiotics and then 48 hrs later developed a really bad fever and ended up in the A&E. so went there and they thought it had burst but a week later it came back full force painful to sit, stand and sleep and worse I was on holiday and had to endure a long flight unable to sit, stand etc it was so bad.

So 3 days after finishing my antibiotics I started getting mini fevers with shivering for 3 days and basically had to take paranormal and ibuprofen to keep the fever down which worked and it went.

With no option of seeing a gynea I took all your advice as I was on holiday. I sat in warm/hot baths which soothed the pain so much and helped me sleep but the cyst was growing more painful daily. So I decided to us apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball. I was only able to do this for 2 days (3 application over the days) cause it hurt so bad and to be honest I thought it made it worse but that is part of the healing. The pain got so bad at the airport on my way back home I put Vaseline down there to help soothe but that didn't help. Ounce I got home 12 hours late in so much pain (pain killers were not working I took. Othc patacetamol and ibuprofen) I sat in a bath with table salt cause I couldn't get anything else cause it was 12pm for 30mins then I applied tee tree oil and within 1 hour the cyst popped and started to drain. I did help it along cause I didn't want anything left inside it. I then sat in a warm bath again and applied more pressure to make sure it all came out. Then rises with saltly water then water mixed with tee tree oil and got a hot compress and now I'm in bed and all the pain is gone. Thank you so much ladies natural remedies really do work well, takes a few days but they work and once the cyst pops pain relief is instant.

I've been dealing with my Bartholin cyst for a few days now. I've noticed it a year ago when it was just a small lump the size of a small grape. It never hurt it just grew a tad when I would have sex and I'd feel it when I wipe myself after using the toilet. It would come and go though, and again never painful. As of about November 28 it started growing bigger and as of two days ago it became very painful. I'm thinking it's infected but I'm not experiencing any fevers. Since it started hurting I have taken about 4 baths in the past two days. I am applying tee tree oil and castor oil to the area. Right now I'm on ib profen so the pain is bearable. I had to call off work today but I really want to encourage it to rupture. I can't call out forever. I have no insurance for this year. I enrolled for the 2018 year, so hopefully it'll be resolved by then.

I had this terrible cyst about a year ago and I noticed it started to swell again several days ago and I immediately started to panic because my first experience was extremely painful and scary. I got it lanced the first time because that was all I knew but I'm a strong believer in natural remedies so I stumbled upon this site and saw quite a few but I wanted to to witch hazel, tea tree oil diluted with coconut oil but eventually excluded the coconut and just used tea tree and the witch hazel. I also did hot baths with epsom salt and when I ran out of epsom salt I used sea salt and soaked for about 20 min each time. I would do hot compress and immediately after I'd apply the tea tree oil and then the witch hazel and by the 3rd or fourth day it had burst in the wee hours of the morning (which was today) I felt so much relief as the pain was excruciating! Thanks so much for your stories they have really helped. I no longer have to go under the knife, thank God! Well wishes to all. :)

While wiping myself three days ago, I noticed a smallish bump which I believe is a Bartholin Cyst after it has tripled in size and doing research. I didn't have anymore tea tree oil in my house so I made a paste of coconut oil and turmeric, drenched a cotton ball in it and put it on the cyst. 5 hours later I came home and the cyst had popped. I cleaned the area and applied a new paste. Woke up this morning and the cyst has gone down by half. So thankful for the first person who reviewed the turmeric.

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.

Would like to know what else besides the D3 and the colloidol silver was taken to reduce the cyst? Fenugreek and Bayberry can help remove cysts.

Hello, I need to know please - is the vitamin D3 purchased from a health shop and are they in tablet form? Also is it just 15 drops each day of the colloidal silver? I have a bartholins cyst the size of a golf ball and they want me to go to hospital to have the draining proceedure - I'm frantic to find another way. I am currently on a homeopathic remedy but results are slow. Kind regards Elle.

Hi there,

Absolutely, All cysts and infection in my physical body are toxin and chemicals needed to solve. The best way to get rid of them is the natural way if you can you can use whether from alkali diet, raw food diet, vegan for a few months or forever, Vitamin C, D3, off sugar and yeast all these benefit the cure and using tea tree oil and castor oil both have evidence to vanish the cyst. I did mine.

Good luck!

Hi my name is Jessi. Thank you for sharing your story. I have been to doc 4x to have them cut and drain the abscess/cyst. I had surgery couple weeks ago after a routine visit to er the doc cut down the wrong part of my labia (mid lip) and left ugly scar. Surgery seemed to work on right gland, but left just flared back up while out of town for work. Just got cut again for fifth time. :'( II have two ugly scars from botched surgeries and I can't seem to find a solution. Can you please be more specific about treatment and how much it costs? Thank you so much.. Desperate and scared, Jessi

That sounds awful! I would definitely sue that dr btw - totally not okay.

1. frequent epsom salt sitz baths 3-4 times a day for 15 min

2. witch hazel compress on gauze, can add tee tree

3. Iodine topically to keep clean and help keep from getting infected (if it's not already)

4. Take iodine daily along with Vit C, D and zinc

5. colloidal silver - 10 drops under tongue

best of luck!

Jessi,

Try using a mild soap with no additives or perfumes such as Dr. Bronner's Baby Mild Bar Soap. Also re-wash all towels, sheets, wash cloths and underwear in Seventh Generation Baby detergent with an extra rinse cycle. No fabric softener or dryer sheets. Also change your toilet paper to a chlorine-free variety like Seventh Generation. Avoid chlorine bleach in your wash and cleaning your toilets or chemical toilet cleaners. Use vinegar and Bon Ami cleanser or baking soda to clean the toilet. Irritants can cause the glands to swell shut, the cyst and infection to form.

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.

From http://familydoctor.org/online/famdocen/home/women/reproductive/gynecologic/235.html

"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.

Dear Kay from Hastings: Thank you so much for this valuable information!!

Could you please possibly list what brands of "straight" zinc oxide ointment you have used successfully and what percentage of zinc oxide is stated in the active ingredient listing on these products. My newly married daughter has been suffering from a Bartholin Cyst for several months now. The doctor prescribed antibiotics in case the cause was an infection but it did not help. They also said hot baths twice a day, that has not helped her either. The only zinc oxide ointments I have been able to find online contain only 20% as the active ingredient, the rest is petroleum jelly and stuff. You stated the diaper rash ones contain usually 40% so you suggested using "straight" zinc oxide which I thought meant it should have a higher percentage than 40%. If there is one out there, I have not been able to find it yet. I may have misunderstood though, have I? Kay, I would greatly appreciate a list of zinc oxide ointments you feel comfortable recommending. If you would like to email me directly with that information, my email is [email protected]

Thank you! Nina in California

Hello there.

I've been suffering from these bartholin cysts for years now and I was about to get my gland removed when just by chance I gave zinc oxide a try, simply because I use that ointment for literally EVERYTHING. and I couldn't believe the way this cured me!! If you are looking for a higher concentration of the zinc oxide, I got mine in Tijuana Mexico where I live, but maybe you can order it online, I don't know but it's called Pasta de Lassar and is for babies and skin problems.

i love this product, I will consider the rest of these recommedations,

thank you

As far as I've found, 40% zinc oxide cream is the highest available without a prescription. I have a cyst problem too, and I've started applying Desitin at night. It's been a few days, and I'm not sure I notice a difference. But the cyst is the size of a golf ball, and so I'm hoping that it will shrink after a few more days.
