Why have my Bartholin's glands become itchy and swollen?

In brief: Infection

Bartholin's glands can become infected, usually because the duct that bring the fluid to the surface gets clogged by dead skin cells.
Fluid and bacteria build up. Warm compresses may help, but they usually need to be drained by a physician.
