Risen boils

I am 22 weeks pregnant and I was wondering is it normal or what should I do about having a risen or boil in a very sensitive area for me.  I have had them my whole life so its not nothing new I just don't know about while your pregnant.  Thank you for your advice and help.

Hello,
Pregnancy can cause many immune system and hormonal changes which can cause boils. Firstly, you should keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics and warm compresses. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then get an evaluation done from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
