bartholin abscess - size of lemon - extreme pain

Hi I'm a 32 year old female. I've had bartholin abscess thrice before on my left side. Twice it drained with sitz bath. The last time I had to get it cut in ER after several days of trying to drain it with sitz bath. This time, I bought silicea 30c and have been taking 5 pellets under my tongue since Feb 24 evening. I have taken 5 doses so far, once every 6 hours. I also bought goldenseal and echinacea drops to add to sitz bath. The cyst is getting bigger and very painful. I cannot walk or sit. I don't want to get it cut again. Please advise.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Dear Mercx- are you in the usa?

Did you get the info on the goldenseal and echinacea
from the other post where the nurse homeopath suggested

You need your whole case taken- After this drains to
keep it from going on again. But for now-you just need
it to drain.

I would call the nurse homeopath for this- the charge
is $50 and you will be monitored by her with follow ups.

The forum is not set up for emergency- it was never
to be a clinic in the first place, and I think you
need professional help right now

Lia Bello is the nurse homeopath- New Mexico-
38 years exp-

505 474 4917

liabello6 At gmail dot com-It is more efficient
to call and give the info and get advice quickly.

I got the silicea details from one homeopathy site and golden seal echinacea drops from another homeopathy site, but there was no forum there. So I wanted to make sure it was the right prescription for me. I answered all the questions. I'm taking sitz baths and the pain has subsided. But if I try to stand or walk is very painful.

Hi- The questions you answered are general and designed
as a first step in getting your overall picture to find
a remedy.

Each person on here has their own set of questions and they
go from there.

However right now, you are in an acute situation and need
it to drain. The overall remedy to match your mental
physical, emotional, what makes you better and worse- if
right, can aggravate some things for a time and then your
level of health goes up so this won't happen again.

So, if me, I would want to talk to the nurse and get
the right remedies for now, from someone who is very
experienced and can help you immediately with good
advice on what to do.

Here is the other recent thread with similar
situation, and she was out of the country.

Lia Bello gave this prescription to her
right before it drained._____________________

I emailed her a short while ago letting her know that it drained and asked what else to do. Before any of this she told me to take this:

Hepar Sulph 30-- 5 doses in next 24 hrs.-- if some better next morning --but not fully resolved then take 3 doses of Silica 200 3 doses over 24 hrs.

Herbal Antibiotics-- Echinacea tincture 15 drops-- and Golden Seal tincture 15 drops-- together-in 1-2 tablespoons of warm water. Drink. (chase with good tasting drink to help horrible taste if needed)
Repeat 5 times a day (every 4-6 hrs.) for 3-5 days. Also can add some of these herbs to the hot water you soak in
