This is my first Cyst. It started tiny a week ago and grew to be the size of a small marble earlier this week. Over the past 3 days the pain has gotten worse. I tried warm compresses and sitz baths but had to go to urgent care tonight.
They said it was an abcess and offered 2 courses of treatment: lancing and draining or antibiotics. I chose antibiotics because I'm going tubing in a river in 2 days.
But now I can't find anyone else who made that choice and had it work. Do the antibiotics work? Do they make the swelling go down? How long should it take?
And if it DOES burst I probably shouldn't swim right? Ugh. Worst birthday ever.
