Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

I think that you have a Bartholin cyst but I cannot confirm this without an examination. Please talk to a Doctor to confirm this. Once diagnosed, you will be started on antibiotic therapy to help you to recover.

Also, maintain hygiene in the future to avoid infections. Hope this helps you. All the best.
