Can anyone offer some advice for a boil in my vaginal area? To be more specific I recently noticed a boil was in the inner labia. I have never had this problem and I would like to try and treat it myself. please only serious suggestions no jokes.
It sounds like an abcess of the Bartholin's gland. Very, very painful. see a doctor. You'll probably need antibiotics to clear it up.
The Bartholin's gland is a tiny organ on each of the labia (vaginal lips), near the opening of the vagina. if the vagina were the face of a clock, these glands would be found at about 4 and 8 o'clock. normally they are invisible. They make a small amount of fluid that lubricates the vaginal lips. if a flap of skin grows over the opening of one of the glands, the fluid backs up. It causes a round swelling called a cyst (say "sis-st"). The cyst can grow from the size of a penny to larger than an orange, although most don't get bigger than a golf ball. They can be tender.
Hot packs will bring it to the surface, and do not involve any chemicals. I would try that and let it burst on it's own with no manipulation on your part.
I've had those, they are horrible. Sit in a hot bath and soak for a long time. That helps bring it to a head and it should drain on it's own.
the Bartholin gland answer is correct. I had this problems many years ago and the thing about it is the cyst kept coming back almost every month when it was time for my period. I had to go to the doctors over and over and was in hospital one time to have it opened and drained. Finally a doctor sewed it open(the gland) so it could drain a little all the time. Sitting in hot water is good for it though. Very painful and this is not an STD but could be from bruising the gland also.
The best thing that I would suggest to do is, is go to the health food store and get a Whole Body Detox, it will pull all of the toxins out of your blood, organs, intestines and colon. It sounds like your toxic. That is if it isn't some sort of std, but even if it was, doing detoxes will take care of your problem! I know this because i was very sick for a long time and that cured me!
