Usually, vaginal boils occur when hair follicle are impacted and this leads to an infection of the follicle. Initially, it appears like a small red bump that may turn into a swollen painful spot in a few days. It looks similar to a pimple, but if you’re not sure if it is a boil or something else - you need to seek a gynecologist.

How to treat boils?

Most boils go away on their own in a few days or weeks. But to help ease out the symptoms you can apply some home remedies.

1. Apply a warm compress

Just take a clean piece of cloth and dip it in warm water. Now squeeze out the excess water, place the compress over the boil, and leave it for 7 to 10 minutes. You can repeat it three to four times a day until the boil has gone completely. Due to heat compression, more blood circulation will be promoted to fight the infection.

2. Garlic

It has anti-bacterial properties that can treat boils. You need to crush a garlic clove and apply the extracted juice to the affected area for three times a day.

3. Castor oil

It acts as an antiseptic and can be applied on boils. It needs to be applied several times a day until the boil is completely healed.

4. Turmeric

It has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that help in treating boils. Add sufficient amount of water to turmeric powder and make a smooth paste. Apply this paste to the affected area until treated. 

How long does it take to heal?

A boil generally cures on its own in a week or two. Some boils may dry out and disappear, while others just burst and drain before healing. If the boil bursts, you must clean the area with a sterile gauze and apply castor oil or other essential oil to the area.

Here are some of the risk factors that lead to a boil:

  • Friction or rubbing from tight clothes
  • Ingrown hairs from shaving
  • Staph infection

If more than one boil develops, you need to see a doctor, as treating the root cause of boils is important to prevent the further outburst.

When to see your doctor

If the following symptoms appear soon after having a boil, you need to see a doctor:

  • Fever
  • Chills or cold sweats
  • Bump that grows rapidly
  • Extremely painful bump that’s extremely painful
  • A boil that hasn’t gone after two weeks
  • Recurring boils or multiple boils

Your doctor will suggest you the given two primary treatment options:

Lance and drain: If the boil is extremely painful or large, it has to be cut out to drain the pus and fluid. For that, a sterile equipment is used by a doctor, so don’t try to do this at home. Boils with severe infection need to be drained out more than once. So, you may need multiple treatments at a clinic.

Antibiotics: Severe or recurrent infections are treated with antibiotics to prevent future boils. A doctor will prescribe you certain antibiotics after the boil is drained to prevent a secondary infection. Do follow the instructions given by the doctor to prevent further development of boils.
