HOME REMEDY FOR BARTHOLIN'S ABSCESS THAT WORKS!

Posted , 156 users are following.

Hello ladies, I am writing to share my story with you and my amazing home remedy that actually works! After nearly three years of suffering from these horrible, nasty, painful monsters, I finally found a cure.

I had my first abcsess at 25, it was excrutiating pain and went to the size of a tennis ball. I tried all the advice on the internet (sitz baths, hot compresses etc), none of these worked and I eventually had the marsupilaziton surgery (which for some people, is a permanent cure). It was uncomfortable and I was in hospital for around 10 days.

My second one came up around 6 months later, again extremely painful. I was admitted into hospital for surgery again but fortunately, it decided to burst itself in the night whilst in the hospital. I was discharged the next morning and was pain free.

A few months later, another one decides to pay a visit. So as usual, I go to hospital, which by this time, the gynae doctors are familiar with me. The doctor examines me and says it is not as big as the first two and that if I want, I can have it drained there and then. Obviously, this would mean that I would be awake throughout the procedure but also that it will be a quick fix and can go home the same day. I choose to have this and with a bit of numbing cream and squeezing of my moms hand, the abcsess is drained. 

This procedure is painful, but NO WHERE NEAR AS PAINFUL AS HAVING THE ABSCESS! When you are desperate, you will do anything to make it go!

A year and a half passes by (present time) and my 4th one arrives. I went to the hospital within hours of feeling that familiar pain. it was not as large as it had been but I wanted to nip it in the bud asap before it got to that size and that horrendous level. The doctors turned me away twice over two days and said that they cannot do anything as it still isnt big enough to operate on. 

Absolutely distressed, in pain and physically drained, I went home, where me and my mom frantically googled other peoples home remedy ideas, desperate to find a cure. We kept coming across a remedy involving,tumeric powder, coconut oil, baking soda and sea salt.

First, I mixed tumeric powder with the cocunut oil, to make a paste. This bought all the puss to the surface of the abscess, making it almost triple in size and the skin layer very thin, almost ready to pop. i left it on for approxamatley 2 hours. it does get very painful and uncomfortable but u can see that it it is ready to burst. A few painkiller kept the pain tolerable. Once it looks ike it is about to burst, mix the baking soda and salt in some water and dab on with a coton pad. I left the cotton pad there, held in pace with my underwear and sanitary towel. 

Baking soda and salt are supposed to burn the skin. So when the skin is very thin, it shouldnt take much for it to tare which will lead to the abcess draining.

i left the cotton pad in place for twenty minutes and realised the pain of the abscess jad dissappeared. When I checked, it had burst! the pain relief is instant and you feel almost back to normal.

I am now writing this less than 12 hours later and I feel great. There is very little pain (only to touch) and hardly any swelling. The abscess is draining itself. I have been having warm baths to keep the area clean and speed up draining but overall Im feeling happy and relieved.

Please try this as it really does work! Be patient and brave no matter how hard it gets, and believe me, I know it gets hard! If u think about it, this is a logical remedy- the tumeric (an anti-oxidant) makes all the puss come to the surface, making the skin thin and the baking soda and salt (an acidic formula)  burns the thin layer of skin making a hole for the abscesss to drain.

Good luck ladies! You can do it xxx

    Hello ladies,

    Im currently having my abscess. I guess it's may 5th day since it started to swell. Pain killers do the trick for few hours when I work but it's not enough. I tried the sitz bath, hot compress, probiotics and baking soda with salt paste since thursday. None of them works actually. But I'm still hoping that it would burst today or tomorrow. I'm having my baking soda with salt soak as of now. It just relieved the pain but the abscess is still there, not ready to burst I guess. I cant use some of your remedies since it's not available here in my country. I hope it stops. It affects everything. 😦 I dont want to take pain relievers anymore. It might damage my liver as well 😦 God bless to us ladies.

    Thank you for the post. I have an abscess. I followed the curcumin (tumeric) with organic coconut oil. I wore a pad for a few hours. Then I applied the baking soda and pink himalayan salt and wore a pad to sleep. When I woke up, the severe pain I felt in my pelvic area had severly lessen and the pain of the abscess had lessened as well. MY PELVIC AREA AND THE ABSCESS WOULD HURT TO TOUCH THAT I BARELY COULD WALK OR SIT. Now it has severly lessened. THE ABSCESS GREW AS IF IT IS OK THE VERGE POPPING. I have a second application of curcumin and coconut oil. FYI: I FROZE THE CURCUMIN AND COCONUT OIL BROKE OFF A PIECE TO PUT IN BETWEEN MY INNER AND OUTER LIP. THE COLD CONCOTION SOOTHES THE ABSCESS. I will report back soon. THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE!

    I came across this remedy after trying sitz baths and apple cider vinegar.

    I made the mix of Turmeric and Coconut oil and as I type I'm waiting for it to take effect.

    I had a marsupialization about 6 months ago because the pain was harsh. Now I have it again but don't feel pain (only discomfort). I really hope this works because I'm so drained from all this 😕

    I'll be back and let you know if it worked! This is Thursday at 8:35 ... (I applied the mix about 5 minutes ago)

    I had my bartholin cyst when I was 15 yrs. old. I been under an operation also at the age of 18. But still the cyst just come and go buy taking anti biotic. But recently for almost 4 times its getting worst ,cause it is very painful and the size is like a golf ball and even my left pelvic is swolllen. Thats why its hard for me laying my bed in normal position that I use to do. I cant even stand and sit well. It happend for almost 2 weeks before it drain. That made me having a sleepless night.

    After reading your idea using baking soda and seasalt give me the idea maybe it helps a lot burst-out the fuss of my bartholin cyst. Because before it takes almost 2 weeks before it drain. But now it take 3 days only and also with the help of taking anti biotic also....THANKS for sharing the idea...

      my pain was for two weeks. couldn't stand, lay or walk comfortably. the day of my surgery it popped. it was the size of a golf ball. because i didn't squeeze the puss out my doctor was able to remove the membrane successfully. so now i wont have a cyst ever again at least on the left side. best thing I've ever done!

    This post is super old but I just found it while searching for something to relieve my cyst that just popped up a couple of days ago.

    This has got to be the best treatment ever! I applied the turmeric mixture for two hours, and by the time I went to the bathroom for the baking soda/salt solution, I noticed that the cyst had popped. I was able to squeeze out most of the rest of the infection with minimal effort - never needed the baking soda at all.

    Thank you so much for posting this treatment! It saved me a weekend of pain.

    Thank you so much for this remedy! Did it today, the pain went away, yay!! I couldn’t believe it worked so fast! I have been in pain and discomfort for almost two weeks and was about to go to the doctor’s tomorrow! I did the turmeric and coconut for one hour and then applied soda/salt/water solution for 20 minutes. The abscess bursted maybe half an hour after. When it bursted the discharge was bloody. Question, do I need to take antibiotics? Please let me know. Thank you 🙏

    Hi, I'm trying your tumeric and coconut oil for the first time now. How much are you supposed to use? (i've created such a mess!). Also, i've assumed to wash all the tumeric and coconut oil prior to the salt mixture? Everything about this abscuss is stressful, scary and hard to find information, please help, can't stop crying today.

    hi ladies, fellow BC suffers

    just wanted to pop on here to tell you that the turmeric and coconut oil paste worked for me.

    Ive suffered with BC's for the last 20+ years. Im 39!!!

    Ive lost count of how many Ive had. anyway, cyst started on Sunday morning, always have anti biotics with me just in case so started taking them straight away.

    Cust abscessed yesterday, Monday, so knowing what was ahead of me, tried the turmeric and coconut oil as a desperate measure.

    put it on yesterday afternoon and did notice it reduced but was back to full size of a peach again this morning.

    Made the paste a bit stronger and it had burst an hour later. I would strongly recommend this to any of you suffering. 1 tablespoon of turmeric and a small bit of coconut oil, mix to a paste and push right up inside you!!!!

    good ladies

    Denise ❤

      hi

      i used 1 tablespoon of turmeric and added a small amount of coconut oil

      mix it to a paste

      the first one i did was not strong enough so maybe try less turmeric for your first time an if it doesn't work use more until it works

      hope it helps you

      Denise
