I just recently had my Bartholin cyst drained, the moments leading up to that point were so painful and unnecessary.
I've read multiple herbal remedies, home remedies, and tried a couple but none of them worked. I went to the store and bought Serrapeptase, tea tree oil, and ibuprofen. I didn't know that both serrapeptase and ibuprofen are blood thinners which really showed not to be a problem in the end, I just stopped taking them. But the tea tree oil was the worse. I'm not exaggerating when I say it burnt my skin off, which is my fault and I'm aware. I just want to urge those who are trying home remedies to protect your skin before using any oils. Also hot soaks do not help at all, they dry you out and also produce more bacteria.
I also found that since my skin was now rough and dry and irritated that Vaseline petroleum jelly was a life saver, it healed the dry skin and actually promoted self drainage!
Anyways, for those who are new to Bartholin cysts and are desperate for relief, do alot of research! And if you are looking to get your bartholin cyst drained ask for someone who has more than enough experience! It is so nice to have someone who knows what they're doing helping you out!
