About a month ago I had a boil begin to form in the vaginal area. I have had these before and they are awful. Over the course of a month, it was uncomfortable, seemed to go up and down in swelling and finally the other day while showering I notice the pain while washing the area had change to a stinging sensation. As I tried to look further at what was going on, it popped and contained some pus and lots of blood. The pain was gone immediately. However now five days later, I still feel a bump there and it doesn't seem to be going away. Granted it is not as severe as previous, but I would like to be done with this thing. Any way to get it to speed up healing or do I need to have it looked at at a doctor's office. And also I would like to NOT get these as frequent. I am as hygenic as a person can possibly be, but I am a jogger and I know the friction is probably a huge part of the cause. Not giving up jogging so suggestions beyond cleaning because I already do that.
Not worried, but annoyed. This is something that has happened before and although there are much bigger problems, these can be quite painful, to the point that I have to become nearly inactive when I get them. And I am still dealing with this current one, almost two months of it. It is much smaller than it was but still fills up every other day. Would just appreciate if I had some real answers on other ways to prevent them besides good hygiene, because that is already happening. That is the only answer I get from my doctor as well.
