Vaginal cystI have a bartholin cyst, pehaps an abscess. I have tried warm baths, Epsom salt compresses and heat compresses. These encourage the cyst to enlarge but will not drain. I read about silicea helping drain cysts so I purchased silicea 6X today and began taking four every 15 minutes. After the second dose the cyst began to drain. There is still pain and swelling but it has gone down significantly. I am wondering, should I continue on this dosage until I have no symptoms of the cyst? Also, I have a Mirena IUD. Will the silicea try and expell this from my body? I should mention that after four doses my head is throbbing mildly and I feel a little 'fuzzy' maybe disoriented. Is this common? I am 43 years old 5ft 9in tall and weight 150 pounds. My blood pressure is normal. I take clonazepam occasionally at night before bed. I take no other meds. I am a moderate smoker, do not drink alcohol and healthy other than that.
