Goodness girl I feel sorry for you and only because I used to get them all the time, so I hear you loud and clear.
It will ooze until it empties. Just keep it clean and exposed to air. Warm baths with epsom salts are amazing, try to soak area for at least 15 minutes, pat don't rub dry. I use polysporin if it is very painful. I was told to cut down on my sugar intake so I did and haven't had a bad bout in a couple of years.
I changed my diet and it helps ALOT!
I hope this works for you.
Please let me know if this works for you.

I am 22 years old and I have had about 20-25 bartholin cysts since i was 17 , my first one was misdiagnosed as an ingrown hair and lasted 2 weeks and grew to the size of a golf ball. I have had two marsupializations and a catheter, my problem is trying to get an ob/gyn to understand how much this effects my life and that i want the gland removed . I have to miss work sometimes because i am in so much pain and sometimes i cant even walk or sit . I just had a cyst last night it only lasted two days but it grew to the point where i couldnt sit and i walked funny . It is always on the left side and i can now tell the second when i am getting one . when it drains , sometimes it is internal , but most of the time the scar tissue from the surgery's rips and drains outwards, its a brownish bloody mucus that follows . I take the Epson salt baths and anti bio-tics along with T3s usually I am given apo-cephalexin which i think works because then they only last about 2-4 days . I am worried there is not a permanent solution for this . Has anyone experienced this or has found a solution ?
