I have a boil like sore near my anus. I have had 2 at the same time on my pubic area, 1 near my clit &1 on the other side. & before that another near my anus. This has been going on once a month for 3 months. VERY PAINFUL!!! Starts out as a tender red bump & turns into a white center very sore to touch. What is it?
I have been with the same man for 3 1/2 years.
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The âsoresâ that you describe could be due to folliculitis, infective skin lesions, infected sebaceous cyst etc. The exact cause can be made out with a careful examination and culture test if needed. Maintain good hygiene. Drink plenty of water. Get your blood glucose levels checked to rule out underlying diabetes and recurrence of infection. Do not delay your visit to your doctor/gynecologist.
