There is a tiny pimple like thing on my labia near the entrance of my vagina. It is really really small. It hurts slightly when I touch it. It isn't under that skin, its pretty much on top of the skin. I noticed it yesterday, it hasn't gotten bigger. Could this be a bartholin cyst or just a pimple? I'm really worried. I could provide a picture if anyone can help.

    It may just be a sebaceous cyst...I get them often and had a Bartholin cyst which doesn't hurt unless infected

      Is there treatment needed for sebaceous cysts, assuming this is one? I have really severe health anxiety and I keep worrying this is going to get worse lol.

      Hi Lara

      Try not to have stress over it.....Maybe go see your gyno to confirm what it is ....try a sitz bath with warm water and epson salt .....that is probably what dr wil say if there's no infection ...I had a bartholin cyst and had the surgery which was susceesful but now suffer from sebaceous cysts ...my gyno thinks it's just a skin thing that i keep getting ...they are annoying and hurt

      Hope this helps

    Hi Lara I just read that you had a successful surgery, are you talking about the gland removal or is it something else? I'm wondering because I am fed up with this Bartholin cyst that's making my life a living hell. I hate my life right now, this isn't a way to live. I just had another drained in the ER it got to the size of a tennis ball I'm not exaggerating. I really want this stupid thing outta me. I'm just so scared.

      Hi Mary

      I'm the one who had the marsuplization...this isn't the surgery that takes the gland out ...I highly recommend the marsuplization as it worked so far for me ...I'm dealing with just sebaceous cysts now they are so annoying

      Renee thank you for replying. I'm so scared of that one because I looked it up on YouTube. How long was your recovery? Is it painful?

      Hi Mary

      Don't be scared...it's not bad at all ...I live in ny had it done under general Anesthesia in and out don't look things up on internet makes things worse ...I was ok ...I got through it

      If u keep getting it drained that's painful just go for the surgery

      Thank you and you're right I shouldn't be looking up videos they gave me terrified but the pain that I feel makes me wanna get the gland removed. If they suggest that first I will at least know that it helps. Just the thought of it coming back makes me mad and scared. But thank you so much and I'm happy you had a successful surgery.
