    Hi I'm on my second cyst now the first one I had got like that too I couldn't even walk I had to go to the hospital and they performed a marsupialization straight away. If I was you I would go town to the hospital it might be infected on you try take a hot bath with tea tree oil and sea salt if you can it helps with the pain and also helps it pop or drain on it's own but for me this does not help but i hope it will for you they are not nice to have.

      Aw you are lucky then it probably was infected if it was bleeding but I'm not certain.. just keep getting the baths it will heal for you quicker and help it drain more if needs to.. unfortunately mine is still there after 3 months going back to the hospital again with it sad

    Mine popped itself yesterday 2am. I spent 4 days in bed. You need to get to a doctor. Get him to see if it's abscessed. If it has he will give you antibiotics.

    It's the worst pain I have ever had including all my major surgeries.

    I couldn't walk or sit. Going to the toilet was hell on earth.

    I used warm compresses with teatree on and salt baths. Took 4 days to pop on it's own. It's the best relief in the world but messy.
