NATURAL AND HOMES REMEDIES FOR BARTHOLIN’S CYST
The Vestibular gland is two small organs under the skin in a woman's genital area. They are on either side of the folds of skin (labia) that surround the vagina and urethra. Most of the time, you can't feel or see these glands.
If a Bartholin duct gets blocked, fluid builds up in the gland. The blocked gland is called a Vestibular gland cyst. (Sometimes it's called a Vestibular gland duct cyst.) These cysts can range in size from a pea to a large marble. They usually grow slowly. If the Bartholin gland or duct gets infected, it's called a Bartholin gland abscess.
Bartholin gland cysts are often small and painless. Some go away without treatment. But if you have symptoms, you might want treatment. If the cyst is infected, you will need treatment. Read till the end to know more about our natural remedies or join us on 22967546677.
Home remedies for Vestibular gland Cysts and Abscesses
Before trying these, you need to decide whether, in the case of small cysts that are not otherwise bothering you, it is better to leave them alone. The vulval and vaginal skin is very delicate and applying things such as Tea Tree Oil may cause you some discomfort. Proceed with caution.
- 1 oz calamine lotion
- 1 tsp tea tree oil
- 1 tsp witch hazel
Put all these on a cotton pad or gauze and apply for one hour (or longer). Other sufferers have had better results by increasing the ingredients to, for example, 6 oz of calamine and 2 teaspoons of tea tree oil and witch hazel. You may need to play around with the ‘recipe’ to find what works best for you.
You can buy sitz baths from Amazon a plastic bowl that fits over your toilet and allows you to ‘sit’ in it to bathe your nether regions in warm water. Otherwise, just fill your bathtub with water up to your hips. Try adding Epsom Salts or some sea salt if you don’t have anything else to hand. Soak for around 20 minutes 3-4 times a day – depending on how painful your cysts or abscess is.
Hot water bottle
You could try getting the cysts to ‘pop’ by sitting on a hot water bottle but make sure it is wrapped in a muslin cloth or tea towel to avoid burning yourself.
Alternatively, you could use a washcloth dipped in hot water and carefully wrung out. Apply the compress for 10 minutes and repeat 4 times each day.
Tea Tree Oil or Witch Hazel
Add a couple of drops to a cotton pad and apply. Check first whether you need to dilute it.
This is a homoeopathic drawing salve that claims to ‘draw out the pus and infection. Its main ingredients are carbolic acid, arnica, calendula, echinacea and sulphur in an ointment of beeswax, petrolatum and parabens. Apply direct or on a gauze pad.
A much cheaper alternative would be Magnesium Sulphate Paste, a topical treatment for skin infections such as boils and carbuncles (so roughly similar). Prid is a US product which you may not be able to get hold of so easily in the UK.
Silica is a trace mineral that is only required by the body in small amounts. It is said to support joint structures, hair, skin and nail health whilst its efficacy for Bartholin’s Cysts seems to be anecdotal.
Silicea 10 homoeopathic remedy
There seems to be some confusion between silica and silicea 10, a homoeopathic remedy for cysts. I have tried the latter on numerous occasions. These are little sugar pills you place beneath your tongue until they dissolve.
Serrapeptase is an enzyme that acts as an anti-inflammatory and an analgesic. It is said to boost antibiotic activity and tackle bacterial resistance. There are huge claims made for Serrapeptase but again, its reputation seems to be based on hearsay. I have taken this supplement on many occasions but am not sure whether it made much difference. You are advised to take these on an empty stomach so watch the dose as the stronger ones can upset your stomach a little.
Castor Oil may help cysts in the same way as apple cider vinegar or tea tree. Research shows that this oil is antimicrobial making it effective at killing bacteria that live in the skin (causing, for example, cysts and acne). Apply directly to the cyst on a gauze or cotton pad.
The stuff we were slathered in as kids to treat chickenpox – helps to dry out oozing skin irritations and is one of the key ingredients in Phoebe’s Cure (see above).
Aloe Vera has confirmed the anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties and both may help with pain and irritation in cysts. It may also help reduce the appearance or get rid of certain cysts caused by bacteria or other pathogens. You can find an aloe vera gel in your local pharmacy or online.
Those unfortunate enough to suffer these blighters repeatedly may use one or several of these remedies whilst waiting to get to their doctor. It is a matter of trial and error.
Tea tree oil: Applying a mixture of tea tree oil and castor oil to the abscess may encourage drainage. Tea tree oil has natural antibacterial properties. Use gauze to apply the mixture and place a hot compress on top of the gauze. Hold in place for 15 minutes.
Apple cider vinegar (ACV): Typically, people who use ACV to treat a Bartholin’s abscess dilute it and apply it to the cyst with a cotton ball.

When the abscess ‘pops’
Sufferers report that when their abscesses burst there will be quite a lot of unpleasant liquid which seeps from the cyst. You may need to wear a sanitary pad. The site of the cyst and the surrounding skin may be tender so you should make sure you gently wash it and then call your GP for a check-up.
