Please help, I have bartholin cyst and it has refused to go down for over 3 months now. It's not itchy, it's not sore and it's not painful either. It's just there as a small ball and I'm freaking out daily.

I cannot go to the hospital because of the pandemic. Please help. What can I do to make it go away.

Hello, Hope you are doing good inspite of chaos around you. Bartholin's cyst occur because of the obstruction to the duct of the Bartholin's gland. It's similar to the acne happening on your face. As long as it's not tender,not painful or discharging pus(when it's called a Bartholin's abscess) ,u can leave it in your present circumstances . Once the situation around you improves and u can visit a doctor ,pls see a gynaecologist who will do a surgery to remove it. Meanwhile if u develop any of the symptoms like pain ,discharge u need to take antibiotics. . Do not be anxious of the cyst at this point of time. U can make sure your genital area hygiene is good ,sexual activity is healthy and do sitz bath ( that's sitting in a basin with lukewarm water) which will soothe the area. Do not use strong antiseptics,soaps to wash your genital area. Hope this helps.
