Acute vaginitis is very common, but it can cause all sorts of reasons. The most common cause of vaginitis
Vaginitis: Causes - infection, and decreased immunity
It is an infection. But also non-infectious factors can cause inflammation of the vagina. This allergic reaction, exposure to chemical, physical and mechanical factors.
Why can begin acute vaginitis
The cause of acute vaginitis can become infected from a partner infection, a sexually transmitted - a common cause of acute vaginitis. So can start gonococcal, chlamydial, trichomonal acute vaginitis.
Acute vaginitis can begin in violation of immunity
Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults
, Causing opportunistic microflora, which is always present on the walls of the body starts to grow and penetrate through the mucous membranes and cause disease. Thus begins fungal, viral and non-specific bacterial (caused by staphylococcus, Proteus, E. coli, etc.), acute vaginitis.
Non-specific bacterial vaginitis can start and hit pathogens through the bloodstream from other foci of infection. Such a route of transmission is typical for children - so start vulvovaginitises chronic tonsillitis
Chronic tonsillitis - inflammation of the tonsils
Finally, acute vaginitis can begin and without infection. The cause may be an allergic reaction, contact with an irritating chemical, mechanical or physical impact. In this connection there is always a risk in the inflammatory process such infection.
Whatever was the cause of acute vaginitis, its beginning and its first manifestations have much in common. But there are also differences in the course of acute vaginitis caused by different reasons.
The main features of
Acute vaginitis always begins suddenly. If the reason for its development was a genital infection, is between the time of infection and the onset of the disease being strictly defined period of time (the incubation period). When gonorrheal vaginitis incubation period lasts from one day to 2-3 weeks, usually 3-5 days, trichomoniasis - from 5 to 15 days for chlamydia - from 5 days to a month. After this period, the first signs of acute vaginitis are common to all types of the disease. If the inflammatory process is very hard, it may suffer a general condition of the patient - there is a malaise, weakness, fever (to moderate numbers).
Against the background of general phenomena appear as burning and itching in the genital area, various kinds of discharge from the genital tract. They can also join frequent painful urination - signs of lower urinary tract.
In acute vaginitis most women seek health care, it allows time to prescribe adequate treatment and to get rid of acute vaginitis. If a woman decides that can cope with such a "trifle" itself, the process is likely to be transferred into chronic, and later for its treatment (as well as for the treatment of complications) have to spend a lot of effort.
Peculiarities of certain types of acute vaginitis
During acute vaginitis of various origins may have both similarities and differences. For example, gonococcal vaginitis characterized by abundant muco-purulent discharge for Trichomonas - foul-smelling foam for fungal - cheesy deposits on the walls of the vagina and the milky white discharge. The characteristic features of herpes vaginitis are bubbles with clear content on the walls of the vagina, which burst with the formation of erosions, then healing without scarring.
All these features allow the doctor to have during the inspection suggest that was the cause of the disease. But not all so simple: the majority of acute vaginitis are mixed. That is why it is important to fully examine the woman to identify all the pathogens and only then prescribe adequate treatment.
Acute vaginitis, even if they are caused by a mixed infection respond well to treatment. But after the treatment it is imperative to carry out laboratory monitoring izlechennnosti. Without this acute vaginitis may remain undertreated and go into a chronic form, to cope with which it will be much harder.
Acute vaginitis - a serious disease. Treat it should obstetrician controlled laboratory studies. Trying to cope with acute vaginitis alone can lead to an infection, "hide" and will "explore new territory" and its first manifestations are various complications, especially infertility and miscarriage
