Hi doctor,

I burst my Bartholin's cyst while having sitz bath. But, the small lump without pus is still there. Is there anything I should do now? I am on antibiotics and immediately after bursting I have applied T-bact ointment on the lump. Will the lump get filled with pus again? Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Now, as it has burst already, daily dressing should be done for the next seven days to avoid infection and start antibiotics for a week.
