Posted , 4 users are following.

hi i have a bartholins cyst on the inside of my vagina, its small and hard and slightly green in colour. it kinda burns/tingles every now and then and the gland swells the odd time but i was told to leave it alone and that it will go itself. has anyone had one that lasted this long? i was told they can last awhile but is there anything i can do to help it go away

    I have had 3 so far that became extremely swollen and painful and after trying everything that i read, there are a few things that have helped. First, drink a ton of water! The cyst usually comes up because of an increase in toxins and/or physical obstruction of the gland. If it starts to swell and become painful, use warm compresses to try to open up the gland. These can become extremely painful, but if you treat it correctly you may avoid that. For drawing out the cyst Ive found that Prid drawing salve works wonders! It is a small balm in a orange container that you can find at most pharmacies. Some other successful treatments have included epson salt baths and turmeric mixed with coconut oil and tea tree oil.
