If there is Bartholin cyst and if there is no infection nothing to worry.
If size increases or it becomes infected then it should be excised with sac.
This will give you permanent relief from cyst.
At present applying Magnesium sulphate cream i think has no value.
Consult your doctor and get it diagnosed.
Ok and take care.

Thanks for your question.
Magnesium sulphate paste is not a treatment for Bartholin's cyst. It is treated by surgery only.
Please see a Gynecologist in your area for confirmation of diagnosis & proper treatment, which may include excision or Marsupilazation of the cyst.
Take care.
