By Max. D Gray. Their function is producing a kind of mucosal fluid that keeps the entrance to the vagina wet. However, when the outlet is blocked, fluid cannot drain towards the outside and stays blocked inside, which ends up causing the gland in question to increase in size and a cyst to form. This may be more or less large, and if there is an infection, it will be painful and very uncomfortable for the woman. Keep reading this OneHowTo article to learn more about this condition.

Delayed treatment is the main cause of the development of true abscess, characterized by slight accumulation of pus. In turn, ulcers are a source of pathogenic microbes.
Allowed self-opening the abscess, after which there is improvement women: the temperature is close to normal, the swelling and pain is reduced. The acute form in some cases have a favorable outcome. Timely treatment ensures complete recovery.
But most often the consequences of such forms are characterized by a transition in the chronic form, or appearance of cysts of large glands. The chronic form Has a high duration, accompanied by periodic remission and exacerbations. The signs are worse when cold and at the beginning of the menstrual cycle. In the period of weakening of the symptoms the woman is not experiencing severe pain, discomfort; her General condition is satisfactory.
However, she may complain of slight pain in the affected area. At the time of worsening pathology appear identical symptoms with the acute form of pathology. In most cases, the outcome of chronic form of bartholinitis is characterized by development of cystic lesion of the large gland vestibule of the vagina. When the cyst fluid drainage, resulting in fluid accumulating in the channel. Cystic masses can have different sizes that depend on the amount of contained fluid.
The main cause of the cyst is a retention of mucus in the ducts of the gland. In chronic bartholinitis accumulation of fluid is significantly delayed. The manifestation of disease symptoms depends on the size of education. Small SAC often remains unnoticed and is detected in the process of routine inspections. Education is medium in size and cause women discomfort, which is mostly felt while you are walking or in the moment of sexual intercourse.
Big education make themselves felt even at rest. Treatment of cystic masses is the method of surgical intervention aimed at removing the cysts or the entire gland. In the first case, it removes only the ducts of the gland. Removal of the gland with the cyst has a high risk of injury and is considered traumatic treatment option. However, the likelihood of recurrence is reduced to almost zero.
Very popular modern method of surgical treatment of bartholinitis, which involves the use of a Word catheter silicone tube having at the end of the inflating bulb. The operation is performed under local anesthesia. A tube is placed in such a way that the ball penetrates the gland, and formed a new passage. Remove catheter after 2 months. This method allows you to leave the gland intact, well-functioning, and lubricant has the ability to go through the new hole.
To prevent relapse of the disease, it is recommended to observe rules of personal hygiene and to strengthen the immune system. Treatments It should be noted that the abscess in some cases opened on their own. After that, the woman noted improvement in General condition. But to postpone the visit to the doctor is not necessary. The abscess may be opened in two ways: inwards and outwards. Treatment depends on the severity of the pathology. Distinguish between conservative and surgical therapy.
The acute form of bartholinitis may be treated as in-patient in the home. Treatment is aimed at reducing pain, withdrawal symptoms of the poisoning and the prevention of the development of true abscess. Treatment consists of local, physical therapy. Also provides treatment with antibiotics. Local therapies involve administration of pain killers, fever-reducing drugs.
To combat pathogenic microorganisms prescribe antibiotic therapy. Such drugs include: Azithromycin; Amoxiclav; Ofloxacin. Surgery for acute course is conducted only in the presence of an abscess of the gland. The surgery involves opening and further removal. The cavity is treated with hydrogen peroxide. After surgery you need to undergo antibiotic therapy. In parallel, apply compresses, which are based on hypertonic saline.
The period of treatment of the acute course of pathology involves the observance of bed rest. During this period, avoid sex and try not to SuperCool.
Treatment of chronic forms also suggests 2 methods: The goal of therapy is to achieve improvement of the condition of the patient for surgery. At the time of exacerbation is assigned a conservative treatment, which is used in the acute form. After the aggravation you go to the physiotherapy treatment, the adoption of the baths on the basis of herbs and strengthen the immune system. When stable remission rises the question about surgical intervention. However, such interference is a significant problem in the lack of a simple opening of the abscess or cystic masses.
Dissection of tissues is accompanied by rapid adhesion. This is the risk that the duct is closed again. Surgery can solve the problem in 2 ways: Marsupialization involves the creation of an artificial duct of the glands for the formation of a channel that is not sticky. Thanks to him, the mucus produced by glands, enter directly into the vestibule of the vagina.
Extirpation is carried out in cases of frequent relapses and failed attempts to create an artificial duct. Treatment of bartholinitis folk remedies is appropriate in the chronic form. Such remedies include: Anti-inflammatory teas are used for taking baths.
Antimicrobial herbal infusions and medicinal compound. Competent national treatment makes it possible to reduce soreness, speed recovery and prevent relapses. Bartholinitis can be prevented. The main thing — to observe rules of personal hygiene.
Bartholinitis: Causes and Natural Treatment
Natural Treatment: What is this disease? Inflammation is produced when a small orifice that releases fluid to lubricate the vagina becomes obstructed. Once this exit route it obstructed, the fluid continues to be produced but it cannot leave, and therefore accumulates, slowly causing a round lump on the edge of the vagina. This lump can grow and become inflamed, and even become the size of an almond, to an orange. In some cases it becomes infected as well, but the obstruction is not always due to an infection.
Bartholinitis: antibiotic treatment and recommendations for their use

Allowed self-opening the abscess, after which there is improvement women: the temperature is close to normal, the swelling and pain is reduced. The acute form in some cases have a favorable outcome. Timely treatment ensures complete recovery. But most often the consequences of such forms are characterized by a transition in the chronic form, or appearance of cysts of large glands.
While small cysts are usually not painful, larger cysts can cause significant pain. Small, asymptomatic cysts can be observed over time to assess their development. In cases that require intervention, a catheter may be placed to drain the cyst, or the cyst may be surgically opened to create a permanent pouch marsupialization. A small tube with a balloon on the end known as a Word catheter may be inserted into the cyst.
Treatment options your doctor may recommend include: Sitz baths. Soaking in a tub filled with a few inches of warm water sitz bath several times a day for three or four days may help a small, infected cyst to rupture and drain on its own. Surgical drainage. Drainage of a cyst can be done using local anesthesia or sedation.
