Bartholin's gland - looks like a hollow round formation the size of a pea. A thin excretory duct emerges from it to the surface of the skin. Education is among the fat cells that fill the labia majora. In a healthy state, the gland is soft and rather elastic, it is difficult to determine by palpation.
From the inside, the formation is lined with secretory epithelium - a special type of cell that produces a secret. The mucus produced is collected inside Rhinocort. With sexual arousal, or when the gland is completely filled, it goes out through the ducts.
The secret facilitates the introduction into the vagina of the penis, protects its vestibule from damage during frictions (Latin frictio - friction). If the work of the gland is disturbed, the woman will feel dryness, discomfort during sexual intercourse.
The causes of inflammation of the Bartholin glands are sexual infections, weakened immunity. Most often, the disease manifests itself: in the off-season, after Rhinocort infectious diseases, periods of prolonged stress. An unbalanced diet can also cause bartholinitis, because the body will receive less vitamins and minerals necessary for normal functioning.
Bartholinitis can provoke non-compliance with personal hygiene, impaired metabolism, invasive interventions in the reproductive organs, pregnancy or menopause. The cause of inflammation of budesonide are mechanical damage to the skin during depilation. Synthetic underwear, tight underwear and thongs negatively affect the formation.
In the transition to a chronic form, the disease has a wave-like course - a relatively stable state is replaced by a sudden exacerbation of the disease. At the same time, the external symptoms of the disease are not pronounced, cysts of the glands are formed. When the inflammation of the Bartholin gland cannot be cured for more than two months, its chronic form is diagnosed. With this course, the disease worsens 1-2 times a year.
Inflammation of the excretory duct of the gland. At the same time, its walls swell, but do not close. The outflow of the secret continues. false abscess. With this diagnosis, the duct of the gland closes and the outflow of secretions is impossible. By filling the formation with mucus, it is converted into a cyst. true abscess. With it, the tissues of the gland are destroyed. It fills with pus and enlarges. Substances secreted by microbes and cell decay products poison the body, and the patient's temperature rises.
A recurrent cyst caused by inflammation of the glands is treated by completely removing the formation. The symptomatology of bartholinitis has an individual character. Its manifestation depends on the type and extent of inflammation. In mild forms of the disease, it causes only slight discomfort in the vaginal area, women almost do not notice it.
If a true abscess is diagnosed, the formation increases, thickens, swells above the labia. The skin over the gland acquires a reddish tint. The temperature of the gland rises. In the chronic course of Rhinocort, the formation is converted into a cyst. It can reach the size of a chicken egg.
