The spread of bartholinitis most often occurs unilaterally, the gland becomes inflamed. Due to this inflammation, the flow channel can be closed, which will not allow the purulent secret to come out.
The latter will accumulate as a result, which will lead to an increase in the channel and the appearance of a false abscess. A person will experience pain, in the future, the Bartholin gland may increase in size, and sometimes reach the size of a chicken egg. Sometimes this inflammation can affect only the Bartholin's gland, which will result in a real abscess and lead to purulent decomposition of the gland itself. It happens that a purulent formation itself opens, a yellowish-green liquid is released, and in the future the person feels good.
During palpation, you can notice the excretory duct of the gland, which is much thicker than normal, light pressure on it provokes pain.
During an illness, as a result of an increase in the density of secretion and edema, this duct closes, which leads to additional inflammation and redness of the tissues of the gland itself and is the cause of the onset and development of cephalexin pills. Due to the accumulation of secretions that begin to form pus, the patient develops a so-called false abscess of the gland.
In the future, such negative moments as a lack of strength, the periodic appearance of pain in the perineum at the site of the lesion, which become sharp during a sitting position or physical activity, an increase in temperature to thirty-eight degrees or more, and general poor health are characteristic. Large labia also have a reddish tint, become inflamed. The opening of the abscess is a kind of salvation, as the temperature drops, the state of health improves and the pain gradually fades.

In especially severe forms of the disease, it is necessary to place the patient in a gynecological hospital. In this case, it is necessary to take sulfa drugs, painkillers or antibiotics, which should be continued from 1 week to 10 days. The resulting abscess is opened.
When the treatment is over, at home, the patient should ensure that there is no hypothermia of the body, and carefully observe hygiene. It will not be superfluous to treat urethritis and colpitis in order to prevent the onset of the disease again.
If a woman has chronic bartholinitis, which at the moment is not very disturbing, you can take baths in water heated to thirty-eight degrees, with the addition of potassium permanganate in the form of a pale pink liquid (1 tablespoon of potassium permanganate solution, having two percent, dilute in liter of water). Or add chamomile infusion to the bath. Take a bath while sitting, twenty minutes. Patients usually undergo physiotherapy using ultrasound or magnetotherapy at high frequencies. If there is a cyst, then it is subject to immediate removal.
General symptoms The disease begins acutely: there is severe pain in the region of the labia majora, in which an abscess has developed.
Further, in the lobules of the gland, the inflammatory secret accumulates, acquiring the character of a purulent one, which leads to the development of a false abscess of the Bartholin gland.
Soon, due to the increasing edema, the duct closes and the outflow of the secret is disturbed. This leads to the rapid spread of the inflammatory process to the gland itself and the development of bartholinitis itself.
At the first sexual intercourse, as a rule, there is a rupture of the hymen (defloration), which is accompanied by pain and slight bleeding. However, sometimes the hymen does not break due to the fact that it can have different degrees of extensibility, shape, thickness, elasticity and holes.
The clitoris is richly supplied with blood vessels and nerve endings, so it is very sensitive to touch, and during sexual arousal it fills with blood and increases in size (erection). The clitoris is the most erogenous zone in most women. Therefore, its main purpose is the accumulation of sexual sensations and their transformation into an orgasm. The vestibule is the space between the labia minora. The excretory ducts of the Bartholin glands, the opening of the urethra and the entrance to the vagina open into it. The hymen is located at the entrance to the vagina and is a tissue fold from its mucous membrane, which is richly supplied with nerve endings and blood vessels.
The labia minora lacks hair and adipose tissue, and their bases are separated from the labia majora by a furrow. Each fold of the labia minora is divided in front into two legs: external and internal. Which are interconnected, forming a frenulum (inner legs) and foreskin (outer legs) of the clitoris. Behind the small labia are connected by a small transverse fold.
