I have a boil on the inside lip of my vagina, it is very painful when I walk and sit, I do shave the area so it is either
caused by a hair follicule or a cut whilst shaving. I saw a doc she had a look at it and confirmed it was a boil and said it
looks like it'll be ready to burst soon, just take plenty of hot baths and she gave me an antibiotic medicine, would this be
to kill the infection so when it bursts it won't be infected pus? I wasn't very happy with the advice the fact that I had
never had one before I don't know what to do when it bursts etc. Also I am taking plenty of hot baths as hot as I can stand
with 'Dettol' antiseptic in the bath, but the boil is on the inside of my vagina lip the water isnt running over it so i
guess the baths aren't helping it along at all.
I would like to know do I have to wait for the boil to burst naturally or can I lance it myself, I'd rather know when it is
going to happen as I have read they can spread, surely it would be worse if it were to burst when I am out as the pus will be
in contact with other areas. I have read about lancing boils and having a bandage ready, how can I bandage this particular
boil where it is? Also will the pain stop once it is lanced and will it heal pretty quick?
If I were to leave it to burst naturally how long would it take? I know you'd need to see it but generally how long does a
I hope I gave you enough info and I hope you can help I am in pain and am in two minds whether to lance it myself my doctor
didn't give me much info about them at all.
Thank you in advance.
