Dr. Julia Stanford answered:

Bartholin abscess - treatment time with antibiotics vs drainage?

Treatment time

Antibiotics
For most abscesses, treatment is faster with drainage vs just taking an antibiotic. And, often, drainage is the only treatment that is needed. However, many physicians will use both approaches to try to clear an abscess.

Is there an over the counter treatment for peritonsillar abscess?

No

Peritonsillar_abscess
A peritonsillar abscess may well require surgical drainage. Adjunctive treatment with antibiotics would also be indicated. Neither of these modalities is available "over the counter".

Bartholin abscess removal or marsup...?

Depends

Cancer
Bartholin abscess is usually incised and drained at first diagnosis. Recurrence in less than 6 months usually leads to marsupialization procedure. New or recurrent symptoms in the Bartholin gland after age 40 usually will lead to consideration of removal of the gland, due to increased risk for cancer.

Does oral sex cause the bartholin cyst abscess?

Probably not!

After_sex
Got me there! I din't think so, but there are no published papers suggesting that oral sex causes these cysts. There are factors asuch as diabetes, weight issues that are far more important!

Dr. Otto J. Placik answered:

What is the process of bartholin abscess removal?

Abscess:I&D Vs cyst

There is a big difference between an cyst or abscess ( which is essentially an infected cyst). The goal of abscess treatment is to drain the collection and resolve the infection. Removal is difficult, painful, and complicated when infected, however prior to infection or once the infection has been treated, then surgical removal is commonly performed of the cyst and is a preferable option.
