Welcome to HCM.
To treat a bartholin's abscess
one should think of the possibility of STD
, either gonorrhea
or chlamydia as the etiology. That can be confirmed by speculum examination, smear examination and culture test. THE CERVIX
WILL BE INFLAMED AND DISCHARGE WILL BE SEEN COMING FROM EXTERNAL OS. In Chlamydia cervix will appear as sago grain. The smear examination will confirm or rule out Gonorrhea. Culture also reveal the organism.
After treating the infection it is better to undergo an operation called as marsupilization to prevent reinfection or recurrence. Get the help from your gynecologist and get well soon. Dr SM.
