    Although unusual, it is possible for the Bartholin's glands to become irritated or infected, resulting in swelling and pain.[7] This condition can be easily treated by a qualified medical professional.

    See the doctor :)

    Tea tree oil? (Pure if you have/can get it) I get the occasional swollen gland in that area and that helps them clear up in a couple of days.

    I shall try it. The doctor tells me to sit it out because i won´t take antibiotics unless I really need it, and this is not a really need it situation. Thanks PB
