What Can I do about a Vaginal Sebaceous Gland?

I have a small bump on the inner side of my labia, which was diagnosed by an OB/GYN as a sebaceous cyst. It's pretty small, but I'd like to get rid of it somehow. My OB/GYN said that they sometimes go away on their own, but if they're become larger or irritated/infected, that they are removed. Is there some way to quicken the disappearance of sebaceous cysts? Would a warm/hot washcloth help? How can I prevent them in the future? I don't understand how I got it in the first place, I'm a very clean person; I shower every morning, and take a long, warm bath at least once or twice a week.

A sebaceous cyst is just a blocked oil gland, much like a pimple elsewhere on the body. Using warm packs may help them drain sooner by softening the plug. Just be careful not to burn yourself. Using warm sitz baths may help as well.

It's also possible that you are describing an Bartholin's cyst, which is a gland near the entroitus (entrance) of the vagina. This provides natural lubrication to the area, but occasionally becomes inflamed or infected. Sometimes antibiotics and local treatment with heat will resolve this, but they can become very large and painful and may need to be opened and even need a drain inserted. Some women may have one flare up in a lifetime and others have repeated problems that require surgical removal. (This is a fairly minor procedure, but has to be carefully done to prevent a relapse.)

Getting one of these doesn't mean you aren't hygienic, but good hygiene may mean they heal sooner. Overactive oil production is the culprit here and that just goes along with having hormones.  (+ info)
