Hi, I am a 32 year old woman. I have a painful boil where my vaginal lips end and the butt cheeks begin. It has grown in size over the last two days. I had unprotected sex 2 months ago. What could be causing this? Is it an STD or a heat boil?
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
Well, it can be a boil, a hair follicle infection, an abscess or an exetension of infected Bartholin cyst. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your gynecologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
