A Bartholin's cyst
develops when the duct exiting the Bartholin's gland becomes blocked. The fluid produced by the gland then accumulates, causing cyst to develop.
The treatment can depend on one or more of these factors: the size of the cyst, how painful it is, if it is infected, and the patient's age. In some cases, a small cyst can simply be observed over time to see if it grows. In other cases,a minor procedure can be performed, in which a small tube (a catheter) is inserted into the cyst and inflated to keep it in place. The catheter stays in place for 2 to 4 weeks, draining the fluid and causing a normal gland opening to form, after which the catheter is removed. The catheters do not generally impede normal activity, but sexual intercourse is generally abstained from while the catheter is in place.
Cysts may also be opened permanently, a method called marsupialization, in which an opening to the gland is formed with stitches which hold the secretion channel open.
Antibiotics would only prevent infection to develop in bartholins cyst which forms abscess
. But antibiotics dont have a role in treating the cyst per se.
Dont worry, bartholin's cyst are common and benign.
