Hello Dr. Khan,

I was so happy to find that forum and hope to get help. It seems magical how many women got appropriate treatments!

I am 24 years old and I've started developing Bartholin Cyst on the right side of vagina (it is getting close to the size of the golf ball). It has started a week up to 10 days ago with a small bump. I decided to have warm compresses few times per day hoping it will be gone. It did not help. I went to see my doctor and she diagnosed me with Bartholin Cyst, prescribed antibiotics for 7 days and hot salt baths at least once per day. My doctor said that I should see improvements after 2 days (so far I have been taking antibiotics and hot baths for 30 minutes for 3 days and no improvements yet). Doctor mentioned that if no improvements I need to have it drained at the clinic. I do not have insurance at the moment so it will be costly for me and I am scared it will not resolve the situation and on top of draining, doctors might prescribe surgery. I critically refuse to have surgery and will do my best and all self-treatment methods as I can.

Pain slightly releases after warm bath but comes back in the morning. It is very painful to walk or sit. I feel better laying in the bed, if only I am on my back (once I am on my side it gets uncomfortable). Due to that I've been having troubles sleeping and being self-aware all the time. I have been doing research and reading about Salica, Calcium and Vitamin B intake from forums and how all other women were relieved after taking it.

My only fear is that I am taking antibiotics and I might not be able to start my Salica treatment straight away. Is it safe to take Salica with antibiotics? I need your opinion on that. I also heard about: CVS Drawing Salve Ichthammol Ointment pads and that it can help to drain it. Please, let me know what is your opinion and how fast I can start the treatment (it is getting unbearable to have that pain every day).

I had close to that symptoms a year ago but it was an infection from an ingrown hair. I was shaving at that time. My doctor drained it and put cartridge (it looked like a tube) for 3 days. It was healed but this time it is worse. I also think now, it is slightly different.

Here are my answers for additional information:
1. Maria Kalashnikova

2. 24 years old

3. Female

4. Engaged

5. 135 lbs

6. 5'5'

7. United States

8. Mild/Highly humid and hot in the summer/Severe winds in spring

9. A year ago an ingrown hair infection with abscess. Now, developing Bartholins Gland Cyst

10. For infection from ingrown hair, less than a year ago for a week or so. For Bartholin Cyst now, for 10 days.

11. Non-Diabetic

12. Desire salt, sweets and sour

13. Slightly dehydrated

14. Tongue and taste are normal

15. Same conditions before and after medicine (antibiotics)

16. On May 25th, I felt a slight bump/cyst. I used hot compresses for few days but it did not help the condition. 3 days ago I went to see a doctor and was prescribed antibiotics. Have started taking antibiotics twice per day 2 days ago (on May, 29th) and hot baths for 30 minutes every evening. Conditions did not improve. Now, I am looking for alternative medicine and really want to try Salica but afraid, I cannot while taking antibiotics.

17. Kind of fatigue on and off during the day. Have hard times to exercise (I love being active and run).

18. It is hard for me to sit, get out of the car, or walk. I can feel the pressure and it is rubbing while I am walking so I experience a huge discomfort. Taking antibiotics now and hot baths. I can feel it is like the size of the golf ball.

19. It is not as hard but I can feel that it is kind of gathered in one place in the ball and pain starts spreading to the upper part of my vagina (probably gets irritated). Gets irritated throughout the day from walking, etc.

20. Safest and best method to help me to get rid of the cyst and prevent the future development of it.

21. I came to college to the US when I was 17 years old, leaving my family and all my friends. It was the biggest change in my life.

22. I was scared at first because I am very close to my family. But I was able to have a positive set of mind and start making friends.

23. Courage and pride

29. I am not picky with foods. I like Italian and Mediterranean Cuisines, Mexican as well as Russian traditional cuisine. I do not have foods that I dislike.

30. None

31. I like to follow the plan and I get frustrated and irritated if something does not go with the plan. I am affectionate person and love spending time with my future husband. I am very friendly, treat everyone with respect, and smile a lot. My mood is very up and down before my period and I can get very sad. I like to be involved in the conversation. I can get stressed out if I do not have a plan and uncertain about the future. I like to be included. I am a family-oriented person and we are hoping to have 2 kids in the future. I have hard times to say 'no' to people and I compromise a lot sometimes. I have a pretty accommodating personality. I like to be prepared ahead of time. I was college athlete and I still stay active so with the cyst I get very upset that I cannot get back to my exercise routine. It also affects and stresses out my future husband.

32. Aggravation was increased after being sexually active. Amelioration decreases after taking hot bath and rest.

33. Photos are not attached but if you need them, I can email privately.

34. In between clitoris and anal (kind of middle way). Inside the vulva (not an the outside).

35. Located on the right side of Batholin's Gland

36. No secretion or discharges, darker urination, stool normal, saliva normal, cyst is not red but the same color as vaginal tissue (or tissues around it).

37. My last period was on May, 6th. It usually comes on the 30th-31st day of the month but I was week late.

Any monthly cycle issues?
Regular, early, late, before problems, after problems, pain, any other discharges?

I was irregular with periods during stressful situations/times. For example, in 2007, my period stopped for 3 months and I had to control it with Birth Control pills to get it back. Since then it was regular but 2 months ago I was almost 3 weeks late. Last month, I was a week and a half late. I get sore breasts and pain in the lower back, stomach a week before my period and first 2 days of the period. Put on weight before period and my appetite increases by a lot. No discharge.

38. I am NOT pregnant. Cyst is the only current issue.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Thank you very much for help.
God Bless!

Hello sir, an update, I'm done with calc phos as you requested, now I feel very mild pain at the site of the cyst when I sit for a long time and when I rechecked as part of my OCD. What's next.

Do you have any experience with dermatitis( eczema), I have seborrhic dermatitis since 2003 on my face and I'm using ketoconazol cream for it. Also have eczema on my back and my left areola and each time I got a flare up the doctor gave me high potency hydrocortisone cream twice a day for 10-14 days then a week break and back to it if it stills there, the thing is each time I got a flare up its on the same exact places on my back and my left areola. I just don't want to use the hydrocortisone anymore.
No food allergy, but allergic to Sulpha.
Thanks for your help.

Hello Maria,

May God Bless You.

After the current antibiotics course is over, I would like you to take Arsenicum Album 200C, 4 drops mixed in 2 sips of mineral water, 1 time a day, for 3 days.

Also, get hold of Staphysagria 200c, Hydrastis 30C and Hypericum 200C asap.

Many prayers for your good health.

Hi rosy3,

For pain, please take Hypericum 200C, One Daily Dose, for 5 days.

Good luck.

Dr. Khan,

Thank you for your amazing help and support. May God bless your work and your family.

Update-my local 'Natural Groceries' Store that had a pharmacy section had medicines but in the lower dosage: Hydrastis Canadensis 30C, Hypericum Perforatum 30C, Staphysagria 6C, and Arsenicum Album 6C.

I purchased all of them. Will the effect be reduced? Should I take higher dosage on those? What would you suggest?

I would greatly appreciate your expert opinion.

Lots of love,
MariaK last decade

You are welcome and thanks for your comments Maria.

'Hydrastis Canadensis 30C, Hypericum Perforatum 30C, Staphysagria 6C, and Arsenicum Album 6C. '

Only, Hydrastis Canadensis 30C from the above will do the job. Please return the other ones. You must get the needed potencies. Please understand that in homoeopathy, the potency selection is the key for cure. Therefore, you may order online to receive in time.

Good luck.
nawazkhan last decade
Thank you, Dr. Khan! I purchased all the remedies in right dosages from this website. Is it reliable to purchase from here?

Keeping my fingers crossed it all will be delivered in time so that I can start my course. I will follow up once all of them are delivered.

Hello sir,

Recent update on my cyst: it got BURST on its own today once I was getting out of my car!!!

Yellow/grey pus with blood started to come out. There was a lot. It has been over 6 hours since it got burst and pus is still coming out. I used Hydrogen Peroxide 3% to clean out and warm compress to have more pus to come out. I am expecting there will be more over night.

My question is, should I still start treatment of 'Staphysagria 200c, Hydrastis 30C and Hypericum 200C, Arsenicum Album 200C, 4 drops mixed in 2 sips of mineral water, 1 time a day, for 3 days.' after I am done with antibiotics course? Or should I start a different treatment?

Even though the cyst might disappear or will be less in the morning, I want to take preventive measures for the future. I do not want it to happen again.

For now, I feel the right gland is slightly harder than the left but there is still some pus to come out.

What is the next step?
Please, let me know your suggestions.

Thank you!
God Bless,

I'm reporting back after the 4 days of calc. fl.

Not sure if I'm noticing anything new. The scalp cyst is pretty much flat, but still slightly tender if I press on it.

The bartholin cyst... ? Today it seems the same as usual but sometimes it seems like the area is less enlarged. It is really soft too. Just can't tell ifs changing or not. I haven't felt anything and there is nothing draining.

Sorry I don't have more accurate info, just can't really tell what's going on yet.

So, what do you think?

Thanks!!! :)

'The scalp cyst is pretty much flat, but still slightly tender if I press on it. '
Do you feel any pain when pressing it? Any size change?

How is your thirst, energy level and constipation? Any urinary bladder issues? Any other issues at the moment?

What are the current mind symptoms?

Many prayers for your good health Schabat.
nawazkhan last decade
Good morning!

Here's the info you requested...

The cyst on my scalp seems to be the same size since my previous post a few days ago. I can barely feel where the lump once was. i really have to feel around for it. If I press really hard on 1 little spot, there is a burning sensation still. Otherwise I dont feel it. So there's still a little something there, but only hurts if I find the exact spot and put alot of pressure on it.

Thirst? nope. I only really drink with meals. And the occasional quick sip of tea or water throughout the day. Have to force myself to drink water. I'm hungry more than thirsty. I'm snacking on something every 2-3 hours, fruit, crackers, sandwich...

Energy level? Usually normal. Last week I was little more groggy but was on my period.

No bladder issues, no constipation either.

Any other issues? Nothing big, but I dug up some smaller things that might help...

have few spider veins on left thigh since birth of my son. My mom has this issue as well.

I've worn glasses since 4th or 5th grade. I'm near-sighted.

I have had headaches the last few days, but I think its due to not drinking coffee. I usually have 2 cups a day, and since Ive tried to slack off, Ive been noticing headaches.

I do get more pimples than ever before. Growing up, grade school through college, I had perfect skin. Now I get pimples on my back and pimples here and there on my face. They're little and go away quickly but they're coming much more frequent than I've ever had them. And noticing more blackheads on my face, too. I assumed it was from trying new cleansers.

Always had thin fine hair, and brittle nails. And my bottom lip cracks and the skin peels like crazy. The skin on my lip literally peels off.

Sometimes the joints on my fingers get achy, too. Its pretty random though.

Oh and mind symptoms... Um the biggest thing that I think of is career. I've been a stay at home mom for about 10 years now and my youngest is about to start daycare in the fall, so I wonder what the heck I am gonna do next. I think about it daily. Its probably the biggest concern I have. I am a very crafty person, love knitting, making jewelry, etc. and would love to find a way to start a business with it. The idea of getting a normal day job seems kind of depressing so I feel a little pressure to figure something out soon. I really want to have my own 'thing' but don't know where to start.

That's about all I can think of. Hope that helps!

And thanks again for all your help!

Hi jrosevil,

So, you have no pain these days?

When did the current period start? Is it early this time?

Please list all homoeopathic remedies at home right now?
nawazkhan last decade
Hi sir,

I'm doing fine on the hypericum, just very mild pain and is infrequent. I think it helped my OCD too, thank you and you are the best.
what do I have to do next?, can you help me with my eczema, you said you needed time to study my case, hope you find me something.
Thank you in advance.
rosy3 last decade

no pain currently. My period started 4 days ago, Sunday. Yes it seemed a bit early. About 3 or 4 days.

All the supplements I'm using were listed previously. I am not using any other remedies. Do you need to know ingredients on these?

Thank you for responding so quickly. Please let me know what more info you need.

Dear sir Nawaz, a bad news, the cyst is recollected, I didn't check it for the last 5 days because I got my period, but when I checked today, its back and about 2cm long, soft and associated with mild pain. Im sad and frustrated and I don't want to visit my doctor because she will refer me to the ob/gyn whom would do a surgery :(
A friend advised me to take sepia( i dunno whats this) so I wont do anything other than the sitz bath and the heat compress and waiting for your reply, please don't tell me to go and see the ob/gyn, I would enter a vicious cycle of drainage, recollection and back to drainage till they decide to do a gland surgical removal.

Please help.
rosy3 last decade
Hello rosy3,

I need more info. on your OCD. Please give details of your symptoms. How long have you been encountering these feelings? What have you been taking?

Also, some pics of affected areas by eczema will certainly help to arrive at the correct remedy for you. You may email me these pics.
What remedies have been taken for this?
