Apple Cider Vinegar for Sebaceous Cyst on Vagina (Labia)

Sue (California) on 12/04/2017

I have a small (about small pearl size) nodule on my labia that tends to get larger and hard when overly stimulated by intercourse or irritated from undies/pants etc. It's bugged me for a few years now, but never got bad enough to make me worry or feel the need to do something.

Celebrating my birthday weekend recently with lots of 'play' time, it became extremely painful. I have a sebaceous cyst on my back, and this seemed to feel and behave the same way. I found this ACV thread and decided to give it a try. Throughout the day, after urinating and wiping I soaked a tissue with Raw Unfiltered ACV and pressed it on the cyst, keeping contact for approximately 30 seconds. I also made sure to wear my most comfortable underwear and pants to minimize irritation. It did sting a bit on the very first application, but all I felt for the other three applications was cool relief. By the end of the day, the swelling was completely gone and the cyst has shrunk down to it's 'normal' size (about a small pearl). I also did see a small spot of bloody fluid on my undies after the first application, but no more after that.

I think with repeated treatments I may be able to make it go away. I did not experience the burning that many report, but this is likely because my application was relatively external, fairly brief, and I also used a high quality raw ACV product.

Oregano Oil for Vaginal Cysts

Anon (Anon) on 09/29/2017

I had two small bumps on the opening of the cervix for nearly ten years. The obgyn said it was "just a little irritation". They would flatten out and then come back now and then. I started to treat what felt like a pelvic infection by swabbing the inside of the vagina with wild oregano oil diluted in olive oil. I applied several drops to my fingers and rubbed it in once a day. I also started douching with raw apple cider vinegar after sex, and eating and applying kefir inside the vagina. The two bumps on the cervix are gone and the texture of the tissues feels smoother. This treatment has been maybe three weeks on and off. The oil burns for a few minutes. The kefir I drink two cups in the morning first thing. Especially after an oxygen and magnesium colon cleanser the previous night. My abdominal/pelvic area feels much better after many years of pain. My legs also no longer hurt, though that may be from quitting caffeine. I have been using the acv/lemon/ginger/garlic/honey and getting more protein, too. I would like to cure the scraping sound in my knees, so I drink whey and hydrolyzed collagen.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Vaginal Cyst

THANK YOU!!! I was hesitant about applying Apple Cider Vinegar to my bc, because of the burning/stinging sensation, trust me it works. I went to the doctor second day of pain when walking she pushed it and nothing came out. Because it was so close yo my clit( sorry tmi) she said she would have to drain it because it would be super uncomfortable. Came back home in pain and helpless. I found this and after 2 days of barely being able to walk and only 4 hrs of sleep I got courage and applied it every 2 hours. The third time I applied the cotton ball I only was able to keep it for 10 min and whrn I took it off it finally started draining. I definetly used about 60% Apple Cider Vinegar and 40% water. It stung and burned but it's finally drained. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!

Apple Cider Vinegar for Vaginal Cyst

I tend to get bartholin cysts that get very painful. I just came across these posts on using ACV for vaginal cysts. Last night I made a small batch of watered down ACV mix 50/50. Then I soaked a qtip in it. I used the qtip to rub the mix directly where I thought it should be. Then I dipped a cotton ball in the mix, just enough to get the top wet. I put the wet side of cotton ball directly where I thought it should be and left it there for 30 mins. Luckily I did not feel any burning. I think because I watered it down. Afterwards, because I heard it might help with the cyst itself besides any discomfort from the ACV, I used Coconut Oil. I fell asleep with that cotton ball in.

When I woke up in the morning, the cyst had flattened and was hardly painful. I did have some blood on my pad. I assume that meant it was draining. Yea! I expect this to continue until the cyst is totally drained.

I knew ACV was great for many things, but never thought to try it for this!

Apple Cider Vinegar for Vaginal Cyst

Came across Jill's?post below on accident and decided to try this.

Day 1, I placed soaked Cotten ball inside where my cyst is at for 30 minutes. With just one treatment, I can already tell that the cyst has softened. It was hard and pea like before and now it has a gelatin feel. Although it was a little aggravating, I find the burning to be tolerable so far! If it gets rid of the cyst then it will be well worth it!

Thanks for posting about it!! I was embarrassed about going to the doctors again. I hav already had it cut and drained twice. Keeps coming back. I am excited to find a natural home remedy!!

Apple Cider Vinegar for Vaginal Cyst

Works but is Extremely Painful

I have had an inclusion cyst for maybe 7 years. I have sporadically made efforts to make it go away, including using epsom salt soaks, castor oil, and serrapeptase (because for a while I thought it was a Bartholin cyst). All of these were completely ineffective, but this week I was feeling particularly determined and decided to try the apple cider vinegar method.

The first day I soaked a cotton ball in it and left it on the cyst for thirty minutes. It burned initially but then was just slightly uncomfortable.

Then I tried it a second day and could only leave the cotton ball on for less than five minutes before the pain was unbearable. I tried diluting it with witch hazel, but it still hurt immensely.

One of the major problems is that there's no real way to localize the treatment and it was starting to burn all of the skin on my inner labia. Still, I decided that I would try to make it through four days of Apple Cider Vinegar treatment before giving up, so I applied it several times a day for as long as I could stand (usually not more than a few minutes), then applied witch hazel, aloe, or castor oil to help soothe it. The pain from this was so intense that I lost sleep and had nightmares.

On day five, when I woke up and decided that I was done with the process, it hurt so much that I felt immense regret over using advice on the Internet to resolve the issue. I felt resigned to the idea of the cyst being there either forever or until I sought medical intervention for it. Then I went to a physical therapy appointment involving light exercise, and while I was there, to my delight, the cyst started to drain!

I'm excited it worked, but to be honest, I am not so sure that using this method was any less painful than utilizing a surgical option. It felt scary for a little while there.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Vaginal Cysts

I was diagnosed with labial cysts two months ago. My doctor drained the largest cyst and put me on antibiotics but as soon as I was off them, it popped back up again. I went back and he put me on on antibiotics yet again but still no cure. I assumed you could put apple cider vinegar directly on this cyst. I put it on twice by soaking Cottonwool in and organic ACV and leaving it on for 10 minutes. It stung like crazy. The cyst is no longer raised but flat and red raw and weeping. I can barely walk. And all I would say that apple cider vinegar works but I guess you need to dilute it, who knew?!

Apple Cider Vinegar and Other Remedies for Painful Cyst

Vaginal Cyst:

Hallelujah. I've been blogging home remedies to avoid surgery and today I didn't think I could stand the pain but then it drained! Started Friday, was uncomfortable Saturday, became really painful Sunday, limped to doctor on Monday to be told it was not infected nor was it that big but they could do surgery or I could wait for it to drain, Tuesday I took advil and went to work but could barely move, Wednesday I coukd not move at all till it popped. Over the days I tried lots of stuff. Did shots of apple cider vinegar, Epsom salt baths several times a day, slept with turmeric and coconut oil on it, took Mucinex Monday and Tuesday, switched to silicea 30 on Wednesday morning and alternated apple cider vinegar on cotton on it and Tufts pads with witch hazel during Monday and Tuesday nights. When it burst I had decided it was unbearable but now it's healing. So so grateful for online forums and all of you.

Turmeric Relief for Vaginal Boil

Have had a boil on my labia (ouch! ) for about a week and a half. Warm baths and compresses weren't helping at all, so I decided to try turmeric.

I took one teaspoon last night - under my tongue, and then swished with water, and then another this morning. It's been about 3 hours and my boil finally came to a head and I was able to drain it! I definitely attribute this to the turmeric. Thank you Earth Clinic!

Re: Apple Cider Vinegar for Vaginal Cysts

Looms (Buhl Id) on 06/01/2016

I have had an inclusion cyst since I was molested at the age of 6-9. It was caused by physical damage, but has "always" been there. Now I am 54 and as my vagina shrinks from old age it's beginning to hurt as the cyst does not shrink with the vagina. All my doctor can do is suggest estrogen cream to keep my vagina "young" (flexible) thus making the pain less, but increasing my chances of cancer. It is up pretty high and can't be reached with a finger, and is very deep under the skin so it can barely be felt. But it is very painful when pressed. I'm wondering if any one has had experience with this and if the vinegar can penetrate that deeply...that's even if I could figure out how to get it in there? Thanks

Apple Cider Vinegar for Bartholin Cyst

Acvworks (Austin Texas) on 01/20/2014

I have been using apple cider vinegar on bartholin cysts which pop up and haven't responded to any treatment so far.

Before bed I have been taking a cotton swab soaked in ACV and applying to the area, sometimes it stings, sometimes it does not. I applied for at least a week before I saw any changes. The top layers of the harden skin slowly flaked off and at that point, I soaked a cotton ball and left it on my cyst while I rested for about 30 minutes. About two days later, when I was applying ACV again with cotton swab, the cyst burst and drained for quite some time. they heal quite nicely and I continue to put ACV on the site.

Be patient, it works!

Apple Cider Vinegar for Bartholin Cyst

My wife has had a cyst for 12 years - above the Bartholin's gland so it was apparently a Skene's duct cyst. It had bled some upon examination by a gynecologist recently and was very tender. We were concerned about cancer but the results came in clean. I read about the use of apple cider vinegar for a Bartholin's cyst, and she used it on the cyst for about 4 nights. This morning, it bled and drained out flat. Now it is not tender and it had been. She was to have it drained by the doctor later this week. Thank God for your post and for this natural cure. And thank you!

I have had a bartholin gland cyst for 4 or 5yrs. I tried putting apple cider vinegar on the cyst and It immediately started bleeding and the fluid came out and went flat. Mine was the size of a pea and now gone! I am amazed and still in disbelieve that I could have used this simple remedy years ago! Apple cider vinegar is amazing!

I highly recommend trying apple cider vinegar for a vaginal cyst instead of having it punctured. It's like a miracle!

Homeopathy for Vaginal Cysts

Sheila (Dewsbury, United Kingdom) on 08/19/2008

I have suffered for a number of years with recurring Bartholin cysts. These are cysts on the external part of the vagina. Mine are always on one side only, and are quite painful to the touch or when urinating. They clear up eventually, but the discomfort meanwhile can make life difficult. A couple of years ago, when I was looking at one of my books on homeopathic remedies, I came across Sepia as being a remedy for vaginal cysts. I tried it next time another one of these cysts came up. I took one Sepia pill three times a day for two or three days,by which time the cyst had subsided. I do this every time I feel another cyst coming on, and it works every time, usually within hours. Decrease and then stop the dosage as the symptoms subside. Your body will complete the healing process. My book says that the 12C, 30C and 200C potencies work best. I usually use the 30C potency, but I have also had success with 6C. Sepia can be ordered from any online homeopathic pharmacy. It's important to follow the rules about taking homeopathic remedies -don't take them within 30 minutes either side of eating or drinking or teeth-cleaning, or the effectiveness will be compromised. Also, store them away from the light and strong-smelling substances.
