Hai, Just drainage of Bartholin's abscess will not be sufficient. It may recur. Marsupilization is the treatment of choice. Whether it had been done for you? REGARDING THE HEALING OF THE WOUND THE PUS has to be sent for culture and sensitivity or smear examination for STD. According to the results the antibiotics to be chosen. You need not bother about the gauze kept. If it hurts or fallen spontaneously leave it. Your wound will heal with appropriate antibiotics and proper treatment like marsupilization. Get well soon.
