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?

Hi,

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

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

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

I have a bartholin cyst. I have had them before but this one seems to keep growing and I am in a lot of pain. Sitting down is extremely painful. I don t have a primary care physician as she moved to a different practice. Will a teladoc be able to help?
