Many prayers for your good health and a happy life.

Hi Nawazkhan

Thanks for the reply. As I was out shopping yesterday I bought silicea 6x tablets and have sucked 2 3xs a day since yesterday. I thought the cyst felt less uncomfortable this morning but I have experienced an uncomfortable stomach and don't know if it is related. I did sleep well last night though and I don't know if the silicea is related or not.

I will stop taking the silicea and buy the pills you suggest.

Thank you for your assistance.

I know that homeopathic meds work as my daughter was successfully treated for her asthma when she was a young toddler living in Zimbabwe and my husband is currently being treated successfully for restless leg syndrome by the homeopathic hospital. His legs used to wake him up every morning around 4am with deep aching in his bones so he was unable to sleep and now he gets 5 - 6 nights sleep with no pain. He was treated by different medications by the normal doctor for 8 yrs and nothing worked.

Thanks again

Hi Dr. Khan,

Sorry for lack of communication. Since our post, I had some a yeast infection and then my menstrual cycle.

As advised, I just completed 4 days of the following remedy.

Kreosotum 30c
4 pellets dissolved in mineral water
3 times a day.

Current Symptons: Cyst Softer
Discharge Blood and small particles that resemble bloody tissue of my period. (My period ended over a week ago...so it is not actuallly that)
-It drains periodically. Not a constant flow.
-No pain
-Smell: Like that of normal blood...nothing out of ordinary
-Cyst only started to drain on day 3 and 4.
-So far cyst seems same size
Mental state: Had some stress. End of a relationship that started but never really developed as person traveled and resisted real commitment. Repairing broken heart. Upset as unable to talk to person as they aren't very talkative and a closed personality. Yesterday the stress from this subsided a lot more after talking with friend and draining was a bit more efficient.

I have following treatments on hand

Kreosotum 30C
Calc Flouor: 6X (the right dose)
Hydrastis Candensis 30C
Pulastilla 30c.
Calcacare Phosphica 200ck

So, please take Ignatia 200C, 1 daily dose, for 3 days.

Many prayers for you.
 
nawazkhan 6 years ago
Hi Dr. Khan,

Took Ignatia 200C for 3 days. Still very upset..headache from stress. Anger and regret.

Cyst same size. No vaginal discharge. However, there is a 'bacterial smell' to my secretions. I am speculating but think maybe I have Bacterial Vaginosis. (had it years ago). Should I treat with drs or is there a recommendation you have?

Thanks
 
lannay222 6 years ago
Hi Lannay222,

Please take Nux Vomica 200C, 1 time a night, for 3 nights.

Many prayers for you.

nawazkhan 6 years ago
Hello, thank you so much for taking the time for me. I really appreciate it. Here is my information:

1. ID or Your Name: starsyrup
2. Age 26 this month
3. Sex F
4. Single/Married: Single
5. weight: 115
6. Height: 5 foot 7 inches
7. country: USA
8. climate: Midwest, cold and dry half of the year, humid summer

9. List of your complaints: I have a bartholins cyst on my right side that I've had for several years. It has been drained twice, once with a catheter, always to return. Last month, it grew large and bothersome, infected after I went through a stressful period travelling and dealing with a primary HSV2 outbreak. After healing from HSV2, the cyst has grown large again after it was popped a couple times. It did not pop naturally. I poked and squeezed the pus out myself because I had to take care of it in order to function in my daily life, but obviously it's a bad idea and now I am dealing with it. I do not plan on popping it ever again.


10. Since how long are you suffering from each complaint: This last flare has been a month. I have had a cyst for 4+ years

11. Diabetic or non-Diabetic: Non

12. Desire sweets/sour/salt: Salt

13. Thirst: Frequent thirst, probably from eating salty food

14. Tongue and Taste: Tongue is normal

15. Current Blood Pressure (without medicine and with medicine): Usually around 90/60

16. What exactly is happening?
The cyst looks infected. It seems to have a 'head,' as in the bottom inner part of the cyst, which is hard and pebble-like, has a soft node on it that looks like the head of a large pimple. It is reddish in color. The cyst protrudes quite a bit, like a large marble under the surface, but seems to go deeper. It is painful and sore to touch and is a bother to my daily routine as I cannot move without pain. The skin is swollen around it.

17. How do you feel?
Worried about the cyst.

18. How does this affect you?
It is distracting because I spend time worrying about it instead of doing other things.

19. How does it feel like?
Painful and stressful.

20. What comes to your mind?
I worry about the pain of going to surgery for it and why it feels hard and not soft. I also worry that since it is recurring, it will negatively affect my current romantic relationship.

21. One situation that had a
big effect on you?
I recently traveled in Europe and met up with some friends in Scotland, but around that time I had my first HSV2 outbreak which was extremely painful and debilitating.

22. How did that feel like?
It felt like I was the most sick in my life and I was in a foreign country, which made things stressful. I had also, prior to leaving for Europe in August, ended a 2 year relationship with someone I love but wasn't in love with to be with someone else and it was emotionally crushing to deal with all of it at the same time.

23. What sensation do you experience in that situation?
A lot of physical pain and mental anxiety. I lost some weight as well.

24. What are you showing by that gesture of your hand (Habits or Actions)?
Not sure. My hands are thin and reserved, though I like to gesture when I talk sometimes.

25. Important Question.
Current and previous remedies/medicines you are taking or took in the past?

I took a little acyclovir. I also took some monolaurin for HSV, and some herbal tinctures such as lemon balm and olive leaf as well. Previously last year, I've taken silica complex supplements for the cyst but they did not have a significant effect on the cyst. When I had my cyst lanced, I was given antibiotics courses.

I have tried coconut oil for BV. When I was 16 to the age of 20, I took birth control pills.

Recently, I took some oregano oil (80% carvacrol) as a supplement, MSM tablets, and fenugreek. I also put some PRID drawing salve on the cyst.

I also took a few Femdophilus probiotic pills because I had a little BV symptom 2 days ago.

26. Family Background
Chinese, parents moved to the USA in the 90s.

27. Educational Qualifications of the patient: I just finished an MFA in creative writing

28. Nature of work, what do you do for living?
I just got a job as a nursing assistant. I used to teach classes at the university I studied at.

29. Desires, likes and dislikes for food:
I like savory foods, including meats, and avoid dairy since I am a little lactose intolerant I think. I don't eat enough vegetables.

30. Name of foods which increase your problem: Maybe dairy?

31. Important Question.
Mind-behavior, anger, irritability, hurry,
impatient…and so on.. How are you different from other persons, public speaking or not, you can describe all of the details about your behavior, love and affections:

I am a very calm person on the surface but I tend to have low key anxiety because I am future-oriented but my life is very unstable. I got good ratings as a teacher and can project confidence with ease, but do not consider myself a good public speaker and feel very sensitive in front of others and their comments. I prefer not to lead, but like to work alone or in small groups. Creative writing and art are my favorite activities besides reading. I am very attached to my current partner and feel extremely happy with him. My concerns right now are starting my new job, going back to school for another degree (maybe) and dealing with my health.

32. Aggravation (increases-time, season,)&
Amelioration (Decreases)
It seems to enlarge with stress, sex, and sometimes shrinks by itself, but not recently. I have had it lanced and drained once a year since 2011. I remember that I noticed it for the first time after taking a vigorous indoor bicycling class, which may have damaged the gland.

33. Attached here your photographs of the affected area. (if required/optional)

34. Location of the disease
Bartholins gland.

35. Side of the problem (Right or Left), (Upper or Lower part of body): Right

36. Color of the secretions/discharges e.g
urine, stool, sputum, Saliva etc:
When I popped it, the pus was beige or a little yellow-tan.

For Females Only

37. When is the period during the month approx date?
Oct 8

Any monthly cycle issues? Regular, early, late, before problems, after problems,
pain, any other discharges?
I am regular and tend to have short periods, but cramps on the first day.

38. Are you pregnant? If yes, please give pregnancy start date? Any current issues?

No.

Update! Since the PRID drawing salve, the cyst started to drain by itself from the head. The pus was tan with a bit of red. I pressed on the cyst and more came out, but I can feel a hard center on the inside. I am not sure what that is. I am not sure what to do at this point.

Thank you again for your time!

Hi Dr. Khan,

Took last of 3 day dose of Nux Vomica(during evening)

I am not sure if my period is starting...but this seems to be the case. First I thought I was the cyst draining but I had a small clot..that resembles clots found when I am on my period. It may be starting a little early...but sometimes my cycle does start super early and doesn't really begin for several days.


I am not as upset as before. However, I am still anxious and a bit angry.

The cyst is softer and usually is during my period. However, I am not 100% sure my period is starting. Only in a few days will it be clear to me. The discharge is very smelly.

Please advise

Thank you

Hi starsyrup,

Sorry for the late reply.

Please take Staphysagria 200C, 4 drops mixed in 1/4th glass of mineral water, 1 time a day, for 3 days.

Also, get hold of Hydrastis 30C and Berberis Vulgaris 1x.

Many prayers for your good health.
 
nawazkhan 6 years ago
Hi Lannay222,

So, let's wait for a couple of days.

Many prayers for your happy and healthy life.
 
nawazkhan 6 years ago
Thank you for your advice!

I will let you know when I get the Staphysagria. May I ask what the difference is between liquid and pellet?

Also, I cannot find Berberis 1x, so I got the 30x. Is this ok?

An update on my status: the cyst stopped draining after I went to sleep and there is still a hard lump.

Thank you, and I hope you are well.

Hi Dr Khan,

It is in fact my period. The only strange thing is the awful smell is something that I do not normally have with my period it was honestly 10X stronger in smell. It was a very foul smell. (Like that of a carcass) . Last time I had that smell, I was taking Barty Carbonica (unaware of hoemopathic rules..was taking during my cycle)and my cyst happened to be draining while i was on my period.

Honestly, yesterday, I think there was underlying BV mixing with the blood, causing that smell, but I do not know. However, today because I have a normal flow I am not having that smell.

My mental state is much better. I am feeling optimistic and happier.

The cyst is soft but appears same size.

During this time should I stop taking Nux Vomica?

When my period subsides what should I do?

Thank you

'Also, I cannot find Berberis 1x, so I got the 30x. Is this ok? '
No, it is not ok.
Please find 3x, 4x or 6x.

'May I ask what the difference is between liquid and pellet? '
Remedy in the liquid form is more effective.

Hi lannay222,

Again, please be patient and let the mother nature's process completely over, unless you have any pain, smell and other issues at this time.

More prayers....
 
nawazkhan 6 years ago
Hi Dr. Khan,



As the day progressed, I noticed there is a smell..however, it is not as strong as previously. It smells more like someone has passed gas. Must wear a tampon during work so it is not evident.

I can wait but will await your instructions.

Thank you.
 
lannay222 6 years ago
If the smell is really bothering you at this time, then, take Kreosotum 30c, 2 pills dissolved in 2 sips of mineral water, 3 times a day, for only one day?

Many prayers for you Lannay222.
 
nawazkhan 6 years ago
Hi Dr. Khan,

Thank you so much. Should I obtain more Kreosotum for later use?
 
lannay222 6 years ago
