i keep on asking about this topic to different sections of the forum. i was able to read topics about bartholin's cyst and all i see was surgery. it really scares me alot.
i had this condition a year ago, but it resolved with antibiotics prescribed to be by my gyne, now it reappeared and the pain is terrible. i have difficulty walking, sitting ang moving around.
i forgot the name of the antibiotic, to my despair, i started with amoxicillin but it doesn't work. ciprofloxacin rings a bell, i think it might be it. anybody who knows that medication?
please help. im in a foreign country right now for our (me and my bf) vacation, aside from i already spoiled it, because of this condition, the thought of going into a doctor and surgery really scares me.
is there anything that i can do to relieve the pain? aside from sitz bath or hot compress, which im also doing, but the pain is still there.
a great antibiotic is metronidazole. Taking motrin or advil should alleviate some of the pain and swelling. sitz baths are good too. the best thing though is to get a super strong shot of antibiotics! the shots will absolutely deliver results fast, like an hour or so. trust me. BTW-if none of these are available-a double shot of whiskey chased by a glass of wine wouldn't hurt,just kidding. hope you are better.
yes I had one that i got rid of by drinking comfrey tea and parsley tea every four hours plus using golden seal root on a white cotton rag very hot soaking brought the cyst down completely...dont give up on it
I think I finally found a remedy, my cyst was the size of a golf ball so painful I could hardly walk it hurt just laying on the couch. I soaked in a bath with tons of Epsom salt about 10 cups and just enough warn water to cover the area. This only helped sooth the pain a little. I then made a paste of Epsom salt and water. I put it directly on my cyst and inside the lips. I fell asleep and when I woke up a few hours later it was swollen twice the size but then it burst and tons of fluid came out. What a relief. Some was clear fluid and some blood clots. I then soaked in the tub and more stuff came out. I lightly squeezed to cyst didn't hurt and more stuff came out. Hope this helps let me know if the epsom salt paste helps you too.
there's a good rave online that states sucess with using cleavers herb tea for bartholin cyst. for cleavers is a natural cleanser for glands....worked great for me imediately and is 4.50 to purchase online
I would seriously advise AGAINST 1 tsp of tea tree on on this cyst. It will burn most people.
The recipe above is worth trying if you use only 5 drops of tea tree. Out of a dropper.
I would be careful about the witch hazel if your cyst is inside the vagina. Test a SMALL amt first.
I do plan to try this for myself as I am having this issue.
combo of rosemary, cayenne ginger, garlic and ghinko in a tea and drink. Save some left over fluid for a compress.
It appears to be an issue with poor circulation. Hot compresses with herbs could help.
I had a bartholin cyst for the first time in early 2012, my OB gave me metronidazole. After about 2 or 3 days it finally burst, the pain was horrid..It came back again last week (July 2013) I was in soooo much pain I went to urgent care, the OB there didnt want to lance it because he wasnt sure if it was ready to be drained. He perscribed me an antibiotic of bactrim & gave me vicodin for the pain. The vicodin really helped, BUT I could barely walk & I had to go to work the next day. That same night, I googled some pain releiving methods for the cyst & found that making & applying an epsom salt paste (epsom sal and water) would get it to burst. I made the paste & applied it to the cyst then I got into my bed lying on a towel & took a nap. Two hours later I got up to take a shower & the blood & puss were dripping on the floor. I could not beleive the paste had worked that fast, the pain was immediatley gone. I used a warm face towel to press out more of the puss.
