A history of a lump around the vagina that was once large, and a rupture followed by discharge of pus and blood, may be an abscess of the Bartholin gland. This gland is on the right and left side of the vagina on the outer side of the vagina. This gland helps lubricate the vaginal area so that it helps the vagina not dry out and maintain moisture. Under certain conditions and the presence of harmful bacterial or micro-organism contamination, this gland can become inflamed, causing swelling, redness, and pain. If this condition is not handled properly, this inflammation and infection can cause a buildup of pus called a Bartholin cyst. However, all of this needs to be ascertained directly by your obstetrician so that the exact cause and treatment can be identified.
If before, this lump had broken out, and now it appears the residual lump is still there or the size of the lump increases, then it is possible at this time the bartholin gland is experiencing inflammation again. This inflammation is probably still early, because there are no signs of pain in the gland, but it can be seen that the size of the lump is getting bigger. Some of the conditions below can increase complaints of inflammation in the bartholin glands, such as a history of diabetes, abnormal vaginal discharge or the presence of a sexually transmitted infection in the vagina can also increase the risk of this inflammation. So handling as early as possible can help prevent the appearance of pus in this gland.
Besides being caused by Bartholin cysts, lumps in the area around the vagina can also be caused by other medical conditions, such as:
1. Infection of pubic hair roots
2. Skin abscess around the vagina
3. Swollen lymph nodes
4. Benign tumors of skin tissue
Because some other causes can give a picture of a lump, it should be done directly to the obstetrician. The doctor will conduct an interview directly related to this complaint, a direct examination by looking directly at the bump area can provide a general description of the possible causes. The results of the examination will be a reference in care and handling. If it is indeed an abscess or pus, surgery can be done to remove the pus by the doctor, so that the doctor can make sure debris or dead tissue remains and pus has come out and is not left in your glands. Thus, it is hoped that your condition will improve.
For now, several other businesses you can do, such as:
1. Avoid using vaginal care without your doctor's recommendation
2. Take care of the health of your reproductive organs
3. Give warm komores on the bump area for 20 minutes 3 times per day
4. Avoid using underpants and pants that are too tight
Thus the info we can convey.
