  • Bartholin Cyst ! Help !

    I developed a pea sized cyst on Christmas Eve and ever since it's gotten bigger and more painful. I am now on the 4th day of the cyst and I just want it to go away! I've tried a sitz bath but mainly I've been applying castor oil and tea tree oil to the cyst. This worked for maybe a minute. Then I tried some witch hazel which didn't work at all. I'm so tired of it and I'm beginning to feel depressed about it. It's so painful even to the slightest movement. Currently I am sitting completely still and there is still some sort of pain. I'm so tired of
    it so please if anyone has any tips to reduce the pain or even ways to pop it without actually poking it, I would really appreciate it.
