Bartholin’s Cysts That Come Back After A Previous Rupture?
I want to ask, before I had a bartolin cyst and it broke but now the lump is growing again. r nActually what actions should I take …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In general, Bartholin's cyst is not a dangerous condition, and can heal with natural treatment without leaving significant complaints. However, in a minority of cases, a person may also experience Bartholin's cysts which often recur and cause significant disruption in activities.
A Bartholin cyst occurs when the outlet of the Bartholin gland, which is a gland that produces vaginal lubrication, becomes blocked, usually as a result of infection or a history of injury to the gland. This condition will cause a lump on the vaginal wall, which can be painful, red, and accompanied by excessive vaginal discharge. The size of this lump can vary. And when the size gets bigger, the sufferer can be very disturbed, both when sitting, walking, and also having sex.
It is not clear what causes Bartholin's cysts to recur and recur. However, it is predicted that this condition occurs related to anomalies of the glandular structure from birth, poor hygiene of intimate organs, and suboptimal immunity.
You should check yourself directly to a doctor or obstetrician. Doctors need to do a direct evaluation to identify whether it is true that complaints in your genitals arise from a recurring Bartholin's cyst, or if there are other causes. Several other types of diseases can cause symptoms very similar to Bartholin's cysts, including Gartner's duct cysts, syphilis, genital warts, hydradenomas, lipomas, sebaceous cysts, Skene's duct cysts, malignancies, and so on. To treat Bartholin's cysts that often recur, the doctor can give you several types of drugs, to perform surgery.
At this time, what you should do is, do not overhand the lumps that appear on your genitals, especially with dirty hands. Improve the cleanliness of your intimate area better, namely by properly rinsing the genitals after urinating, not having risky sex, and always wearing clean clothes. If the lump is painful, you can take a lot of soaking in warm water, compressing the genitals with warm water, or also taking paracetamol to make the pain subside.
Hope it helps ..
