Hello and welcome,
It seems that it has developed into a chronic abscess
. Do not worry, Bartholins cysts typically tend to recur.
You will need to get it removed. If it has already burst, it will not be possible to remove it now. You will need a culture swab test done to determine which organism is causing the infection and need antibiotics to kill it.
Once this settles, then the cyst needs to be removed when it is not infected. Another process is marsupilisation of the cyst where the opening is broadened and the duct of the cyst is not allowed to block so that secretions do not get collected and infected.
So please see your doctor and get the swab test as well as a prescription of antibiotics or local antiseptics.
Hope this was helpful.
Feel free to ask any further queries and I will be happy to help.
Thanks for using HCM.
Have a good day.
