Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: If this is clear fluid oozing then this is normal and it may last for 6-8 weeks postoperatively. If there is pussy or bloody discharge associated with pain,redness around it or fever then it indicates wound complication and reoperation may be necessary if antibiotics arent efficient. In Barthlion cyst there is a tendency for the cyst or abscess to recur so you should be patient and if there is no improvement,you should do more radical surgical procedure such as marsupielisation or complete excision. All in all,try with antibiotic creams and frequent showering for 1 week and if there is no improvement or those signs I ve mentioned occur,you should visit gynaecologist. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards
