Boils On Vagina – Solid Tips For Healing

Boils are infections of the skin that most commonly show up on the face, back, shoulders, buttocks and thighs. They can occur anywhere on the skin though, so boils on vagina are not uncommon.

A boil will start out small and red but as the infection progresses the boil will fill with pus and get bigger (the pus under the skin will become more visible as the outer layer of skin over the boil is stretched thus giving the boil a whitish appearance). Usually a boil will get big enough that the outer layer of skin will burst allowing all the pus to drain, this usually takes about 2 weeks to occur.

If the boil is grouped with more than one boil or if fever or red streaking occur with the boil it could be a sign that there is a more serious infection taking hold and you should see your doctor right away. When a boil forms it can cause itching particularly in the vaginal area of the body, which may be your first indication that there is something going on. Many women often think they have an STD or something more serious but it’s important to remember that in most cases it’s probably a fairly benign issue such as a boil or a rash.

When a boil is found on the vagina it is important to treat it a little more aggressively instead of just letting it run it’s course since this infection can lead to other, more serious infections if the pus enters the blood stream. You need to allow the boil to rupture on it’s own and continue to keep the area clean. You can get some relief by pressing a warm washcloth to the area several times a day, make sure that you thoroughly dry the area when you are through.

To help prevent further breakouts use antibacterial soap and keep your vaginal area clean to prevent the buildup of bacteria that can lead to an infection. Since many times boils are formed by a plugged sweat gland make sure you keep your skin clean by using a soft washcloth to wash that area and gently slough off any dead skin cells and keep the skin free from buildup that can block the sweat glands.

This problem is especially common for women who workout frequently since they will be more prone to sweating. It’s important to wear clothes, underwear, that are made of breathable fabrics so that they can dry. You also want to shower and change as soon after every workout as you possibly can.

Few things are as unpleasant to think about, or have to deal with, as boils on vagina but this really isn’t an uncommon condition and it certainly isn’t something to be embarrassed about. Just remember that it’s important to take good care of the infected area to prevent the infection that caused the boil to spread and possibly turn into a much more serious condition in other parts of your body.
