I feel for you. I also had a cyst on my Vagina. I had mine for about 2 years. My OB/GYN tried a oral antibiotic which I do not remember what it was and I had a topical antifungal. Both items failed. Eventually, the cyst had to be lanced. This was done at my annual gyn checkup. It was full of pus and fluid. It really did not hurt and it was a relief to get it eliminated. It is very easy to get a cyst in that area. All it takes is one inflamed hair follicle and it is complicated by the warm moist conditions and the cyst grows. Sometimes, they can get very big. My cousin had a very big one and had to be hospitalized. I would consult my gynecologist and let them know that the prescribed medication did not work. In the meantime, try a warm bath and warm compresses to that area. Sometimes the cyst will break on it's own after applying heat and a little pressure. Also try a little pressure after your shower, this might cause it to break. Good Luck!
