I think you have a bartholin's cyst.

If a Bartholin duct gets blocked, fluid builds up in the gland. The blocked gland is called a Bartholin gland cyst

hopefully the antibiotics will help

you can also use a warm towel or compress on the area

make sure you take probiotics when you take your antibiotics to help prevent diarrhea from your antibiotics.

make sure you take your antibiotics with food in your stomach so you don't upset your stomach
