Doctor :   if it is painful and infected you have to go to a doctor and have it checked up.
User :   any precautiions to be taken (for eg. diet etc)
Doctor :   precautions have to be taken not in the context of prevention of cysts but protecting it from getting infected, use condoms regularly during sex when she has cysts to protect it to an extent from getting infected.
Doctor :   if she has pain use over the counter pain relievers.
Doctor :   sitz bath would be helpful in healing the area of cyst.
