I have not being diagnosed by a doctor but about 6 months ago i had a blister (Just one) on the walls of my vagina it last for about a week then it goes away leaving no scar it appeared about two months after and has appeared again (currently). It comes up after my period has ended. About the same time the blister started i found that after my usual drinking on a Sunday night, by Monday morning there is a rash on the inner part of my arm and palm. What could be the cause and will the blister worsen?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

What you have is probably a Bartholin cyst. On each side of the vaginal opening there are Bartholin's glands which secrete fluid to lubricate the vagina. At times their openings become obstructed causing fluid to accumulate in the gland, resulting in relatively painless swelling called a Bartholin cyst.

You can soak in a tub filled with a few inches of warm water (sitz bath) several times a day for three or four days. This may rupture cyst and which will then drain on its own. If this does not help, then please consult your gynecologist for incision and drainage. Other than that though a single cyst, it can be due to herpes, genital wart or due to chancroid, syphilis, and molluscum contagiosum.

The other possibility is an allergy to something and this could have caused the rash. If the blister is due to allergy, then this can worsen. Please consult a doctor once, preferably a gynecologist. Hope this helps. Take care!
