Bartholin cyst gone but no drainage and swollen labia

Posted , 2 users are following.

So I have had a bartholin cyst for a week. It has gotten large. No pain, more like discomfort. Tonight I put a mixture of tea tree and some other oils on a cotton swab and placed it on the area while I wrapped christmas presents. I felt some stinging and went to the bathroom to check and it felt like it was coming to a head. I was happy thinking this would be over soon. I alternated and put phoebe's cure on and went back to wrapping gifts. Went to the bathroom to check about and hour later and my entire labia is swollen to the size of a tennis ball or maybe a little smaller than a tennis ball. The lump where the bartholin cyst typically is located is completely gone entirely flattened. but the lip of my vagina is huge. Also there was no drainage. This is my third BC I have seen them drain before so I know what to look for. There was nothing there. Its like the cyst migrated into my labia. This is weird. I don't know what to do.

      I don't know if you want advice from me. I am sitting in the ER right now post drainage. I used a combination of oils (tea tree, frankinscense, lavendar, copaiba, purification, theives) i put about 15 drops of each in a bottle and diluted with coconut oil. I sprayed this on a cotton round and placed it on the cyst for about an hour. It quickly caused a reaction. It caused the cyst to burst but not through the skin. It burst and leaked into the surrounding tissues. There was a small pocket of fluid that they drained with needle aspiration. All of it was horrible. Good luck
