Have clogged bartholin gland. No pain or fever. How to get rid of this?

I have a clogged bartholin gland . I ve had it drained three times over the last 8 years or so. At present, it is about the size of a thumb and there is no pain or fever. I take baths daily. I know sitz baths can work, but I ve never had luck with this method. I ve read that silica complex can help the cyst to drain on its own. Is this a safe supplement to try? Or do you have other recommendations? Thank you for your help.

Hello dear,
Thanks for the query,
Recurrent bartholinitis could be sign of early malignancy, kindly get it excised and get the HISTOPATHOLOGY report. Check your blood sugars also. After total excision it might not recur. One more option is MArsupialization, where the chances to recur are high.
Hope I answered your question, Kindly reply me if you have any further queries or any comments. I will be very happy to help you.
