Symptoms of colpitis (vaginitis) are familiar to almost every woman. A feeling of heaviness in the vaginal area, in acute forms – itching, burning, the appearance of atypical discharge … The appearance of these characteristic signs can be caused by a number of reasons – from a decrease in local immunity to the activation of infectious diseases. Colpitis is often triggered by trichomoniasis. Identification of the sources of inflammatory processes is possible only by passing the necessary tests.
The first determination of colpitis occurs with a standard visual examination on a gynecological chair. The specialist notes redness of the vaginal mucosa, with expressive signs of inflammation. For the diagnosis of colpitis , both symptoms and treatment are strictly individual.
The second necessary procedure to identify the sources of the pathological process is the study of the biological material of the patient (smear on the microflora, cytological examination). According to the results of the analysis, the true cause of colpitis is indicated.
The manifestation of the characteristic symptoms of colpitis (vaginitis) may indicate various pathological processes that occur in the body. Bacteria, fungal formations, microorganisms are recognized as the “culprit” of inflammation of the vaginal mucosa. No less influence on the development of the disease is exerted by disturbances in the digestive and excretory systems. A wide causal range of colpitis dictates the need for its accurate diagnosis and appropriate comprehensive treatment.
It’s all about weak immunity!
In the absence of infectious signs of the disease, colpitis is treated by local drug exposure. Douching with a weak solution of potassium permanganate, rotokan or a decoction of herbs (at least 1 time per day) can be prescribed to the patient. In this case, it is often necessary to use special intravaginal sprays. Their task is to improve the condition of the microflora of the vagina. As an aid, the doctor may recommend taking immunomodulatory drugs.
In the case of recognition of the infectious provocation of colpitis, the symptoms and treatment will differ significantly from a similar process that proceeds without bacterial complications. The clinical picture of this type of colpitis is more expressive. The patient may complain of itching and burning, pain during urination and sexual intercourse, the appearance of copious abnormal discharge. The detection of trichomonads, gonococci, streptococci, E. coli requires the specialist to prescribe a comprehensive, multi-component antibiotic course (for general and local exposure). An important component of such treatment is the need to take drugs containing bifidobacteria. This auxiliary therapy is prescribed at the end of antibiotic effects on the body.
How can colpitis be treated?
When detecting colpitis, patients, unfortunately, often refuse full treatment. In this case, they consider the best treatment option to eliminate the symptoms of the disease. For this purpose, physiotherapeutic procedures, homeopathic preparations, douching and phyto-baths are used. However, short-term improvement is not a guarantee of cure for colpitis . Subsequently, the symptoms can only worsen, relapses are likely, which means that treatment will need to be resumed.
The practice of the general, standard treatment described in medical guides is incorrect. The material for their preparation is formal knowledge about the disease. As for the effective treatment of colpitis, it is possible only by studying the analyzes of each individual patient. Only an individual approach to the treatment of gynecological diseases guarantees a successful recovery.
