advice on lumps

Hi I'm 23 years old and 28 weeks pregnant, recently 2 big lumps have appeared on the inside of my leg up on the crease where my leg meets my vagina. They are really big like the size of marbles & painful.. My partner seems to think they are just boils? But wanted some other advice, if anyone could help, thank you x

Yep, they're boils and they hurt like hell. I have one on the crease where my buttcheek meets my legs. Keep it dry and covered, with a bandaid/gauze, and it should go away soon. And by no means, please do not try popping it. It will make it worse by causing infection or spreading the pus even more.
