Vaginal boils aka skin abscess is a
localized infection deep in the skin. It starts as a reddened tender bump near
the labia (the outer part of the vagina).
This soon develops into a firm, hard, inflamed lump that is
filled with bacteria-fighting white blood cells and dead skin tissue (pus). The
affected area usually gets larger and more painful until the boil bursts and the
pus is able to drain.
While some boils disappear within a few days, many can take up to two weeks to
heal, which can be very painful and frustrating.
Symptoms of boils include skin that is hot to the touch, pain in the
area of the boil, a white head on the boil and swelling.
Causes of Vaginal Boils
Boils inside/outside of the vagina or on other parts of the body are
Excess production of sebum resulting in a
plugged oil gland. It becomes infected when bacteria is trapped inside the
Ingrown hair. Hair pores might be injured
during shaving of the intimate area. During healing the pores shut enclosing hair
follicles. Bacteria that are present on the skin infect these hair follicles
leading to the development of vaginal boils.
Cuts and bruises. Even a small cut or
scrape in the skin caused by tight underwear or rashes in the groin can develop
into abscesses which become infected with bacteria.
Toxins in the body. Pollution, smoking,
oily foods, not eating healthily and stress causes the built up of toxins in
the body. This accumulation of toxins in the body could cause the break out of boils and
pimples not only in the vagina but other parts of the body as well.
