I've been suffering with a frustrating problem for a little while now and I'm not sure of what is causing it or how to properly go about treating it. I seem to be getting frequent cysts (usually one on its own at one time) or something just inside my labia majora (at the top end, not the entrance). I only seem to get one at a time rather than multiple but it's still sore and although they seem to go down after some time they generally come back. I actually went to a gynecologist recently but at the time I didn't have any cysts (I thought I still had a small one from a bartholin cyst but turned out it was gone). She said my vagina looked healthy and I discussed other stuff unrelated to the cysts. I forgot to ask her why they occur and what I can do.
Idk if this is related but I do suffer with cystic acne on my face (for about 10 months now). I'm not sure if the vaginal cysts are similar but it is strange they occur in both places.
Does anyone know what causes them and how I can treat them? I don't wanna have to get referred back so soon and its likely it'll have cleared before I get another appt.
Ftr, I'm not sexually active right now. Also I wear liners all the time as I have IC and generally have a leaky bladder so idk if that contributes to the problem. I also don't shave down there right now but was told by my doctor when I had one previously that it was likely to have been an ingrown hair?
If anyone can advise that'd be awesome as I've run out of ideas haha.
