Bartholin cyst of vagina, Please suggest me to get rid of this problem

I am a 37 years old Indian lady living in USA and I have Diabeties type II from last 6 years and on medication of one pill of Glucobay (25mg) before breakfast and one pill of Pio-15 after dinner everyday . However, my sugar is almost under control evry time I get it tested. At present my problem is this that almost every month I am getting some kind of Vaginal infection because of which the inner lips of my Vagina swells and it becomes itchy and it pains on pressing. It do bleeds also at the time of recovering. Sometimes there is also some white discharge from the swelling along with blood. This happens almost every month for 4-7 days and I just wash my vaginal portion with cold water and sprinkle some anti-itch powder for relief. Please suggest me to get rid of this or to take some medicine for it.

I think you need one gynaecological examination. According to your discription , you might be having bartholin's cyst of vagina. This might have been infected. You require a kind of antibiotic course and then if problem persists, go for excision and evacuation of the same. Do not worry as it is a minor procedure.

Hi I ve had a bartholin cyst for going on 4 days now. I ve had one when I was 14 but it came and went away, no pain. This one is an abscess now. After 2 days I started feeling pain and felt the swelling. Went to the ER and was given the choice to lance it and have it drained, or start Bactrim DS with home remedies to let it pass on its own. I chose the antibiotics. I m not a big fan of surgerys, shots, or even doctors offices/ER in general. I believe in home remedies and natural ways to get rid of infection. It s probably the size of a large marble now, painful, and has white milky discharge. Hot baths are helping and I ve only been on Bactrim one day so I m not sure if it s helping. Any other ways to naturally have it gone?

history: i had an extremely large abscess form due to a bartholin cyst. it began growing in jan but i didn t recognize it as a problem until mar. it has reinfected and created more chambers, tunnels each time. this has happened 6 times. i had multiple i and d s, a failed attempt at a word catheter, then a finally marsupialisation may 19. however, another infection occurred after i finished the moxatag x 10 days. copious amounts of milky white thin fluid had to be expressed that looks yellowish tan on tissue and has an oily feel. it smelled like dirty feet. the dr called in bactrim ds x 10d on, jun 8th but after 5 d i went in (yesterday) to be checked because i feel ill all over and weak. she gave me a rocephin inj and i m to keep on the bactrim. today i again had at least a cc or more of the fluid come out from the marsupialised area but it didn t smell as foul. question: what does normal bartholin gland fluid look like, and what is a normal amount, and can this infection cause bacteremia, and should my antibiotic be changed because of the amount of drainage?

My husband had a circumcision (he's 42) after phimosis all his life. It's been 8 months, and his glans are still too painful and sensitive to touch. He's says it feels like a toothache. I wonder if perhaps he had a low grade yeast infection under the foreskin for years going unnoticed. I read untreated yeast can grow rhizomes, and become more in the mold category, going under the top layer of skin in a woman's vagina, and having nearly no symptoms, other than vulva pain similar to what my husband is now describing. He has tried all pain meds for it, including ones for nerve pain. Suggestions on what this might be, other possibilities.... would be great.

I was recently on a round of amoxocillin for a tonsillitis infection, when I also had a yeast infection present at the time of my visit. I was also prescribed diflucan, and took two during the course of the antibiotics (10 days) to clear the infection, and have been eating lots of yogurt and kefir everyday since. I ordered a swab test at the first visit which came back negative for candida, much to my confusion. However, after the two diflucan symptoms subsided. 3 weeks later the tonsillitis returned, along with a UTI. I was prescribed another round of amoxicillin, and I have been 5 days, or halfway through, my second round. About three days ago, two days in to the second round of antibiotics, I developed yet another yeast infection.. or so I thought. I have taken two diflucan, still taking kefir and yogurt, to no avail. I had noticed that the discharge had no yeasty odor, which is usually very obvious to me, yet the symptoms all pointed to the worst yeast infection I ve ever experienced. Tonight I tried a clotrimazole suppository from an OTC 7-day treatment pack, along with acidophilus supplements, and within an hour was experiencing an even more painful and itchy, almost burning reaction. Upon inspection, I noticed very severe swelling of the inner labia, and even a tiny bit of bleeding from the now completely raw, sore and swollen inner labia. It seems to be a reaction to the clotrimazole, which I plan to discontinue. I am curious about the possibility of a lactobacilli overgrowth, or cytotolytic infection, as a result of my overzealous consumption of probiotic foods. Even moreso, I am interested in finding a way to put this problem to rest! Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
