Am I the only one who gets boils?

I get boils on my lady garden. Sometimes they are big and sometimes they are small. They can end up in the most awkward places on my lady garden sometimes like right between my thigh. I don't want to talk to my mum or friends cus I'm really embarassed about it. I feel like I'm the only person with this problem. I'm really sorry if you think this topic is gross or cringe but I just want reasurance that I'm not alone.

No. Your not alone! It is a common problem and I get them as well. Sometimes it's friction from your legs rubbing together. My doctor is a woman and she says she even gets them. More common in middle age. I am 43 and had my first one at 40. No real cure but they are painful and annoying. If you have the guts to pop them, make sure you clean it well and daily until its healed
