How can a painful Bartholin's cyst that hinders walking, sitting and even laying down be treated?

I’m not sure but I believe I have a bartholin cyst. It’s so painful to walk, sit and even lay down. I’m not sure exactly sure how it’s caused but I haven’t been sexually active in months. I don’t have medical insurance right now, but is their any home remedies I can do to ease the pain? Can it burst on its own?

It should be drained or it should be excised or marsupialisation should be done. Along with anti-inflammatory agents.

I had a recurring Bartholin cyst every 2 months it will come back but it’s never painful and I’m always able to pop it myself and Drain and it goes away I would also sit in a hot tub of water during the healing process but will come back a few weeks later why does it keep coming back ? This time it magically pop up and I was able to drain immediately and it was pain less as usual but had a lot of brownish discharge
