There is a secaceous cyst on my labia majora and it popped by itself. I squeezed the pus out of it until blood came out,(not supposed to do that I know. I put a hot compress on it for about 20 mins and went in the hot tub. I would like to know how else to treat it so it will go away or at least get smaller.

Just leave it be. Don't squeeze it anymore or try and pop it, because what that can do is make it spread more beneath the skin.

If you feel you must do something, the warm compresses are fine, but otherwise, just don't mess with it, and it'll likely get smaller.

Labial cysts tend to stick around for a long time, and sometimes will get a bit bigger due to heat, certain pressure (like due to a bike ride), but they're harmless and if you don't mess with them, even if they don't go away completely, they won't usually get ginormous or be something very noticeable.
