INFLAMMATION OF THE CERVIX





Category: Diseases of Women

This is an inflammation of the mucous
membrane lining the canal of the cervix (cervical canal), known as
Endocervicitis; it may be acute or chronic. The acute form is seen most
often as a part of a general infection involving both womb and cervix, and
will be described later. The chronic form is a very common condition and
it is difficult to treat.

Cause. Injury and tear of the cervix.

Symptoms. Leucorrhea, profuse and frequent menstruation, pain in the back
and loins. On examination a string of thick mucus is seen at the external
opening (os) of the cervix; and of women who have borne children there are
usually signs of tear and rawness of the cervix present; (Endometritis
usually produces a thin watery discharge, while gonorrhea produces a
thick, pus-like discharge).

Treatment. Hot vaginal douches, containing one dram of sulphate of zinc
to one pint of water, used every night for ten minutes. Hot water with
witch-hazel, about four drams to the pint, is also good. Tincture of
iodine applied locally twice each month. White oakbark tea used as an
injection once a day for this trouble; also good for vaginitis.
