I have what appears to be boils in between the inside of my legs and vaginal area. im not sure what they are caused from like in grown hairs?? when they appear i usually put a hot compress on them and pop them and they seem to go away but not fully, then before i know it they are back again. i have had them on and off now for about a year now. im not sure i should see the doctor about them.

They are not serious. Just annoying. Are you overweight? Overweight and hormones play a part in some forms of boils like the ones you have.

There ya go! when you get one, put on a good coat of Neosporin, and on top of that, put some Gold Bond triple strength medicated powder. Not on any that are near your vagina, because it will burn, but do it twice a day, and they will go away faster. My sister swears by this! Good luck!
