Vaginal Boils Prevention
And Best Home Remedies

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

Vagina boils or any other type of boils are caused by:-

  1. Excess production of sebum resulting in a plugged oil gland. It becomes infected when bacteria is trapped inside the blocked gland.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Preventing Vaginal Boils

Good vaginal hygiene is the most important factor in preventing not only vaginal boils, bumps and pimples but also other vaginal infections such as itching and smelly vaginal odor.

  • Bathe twice a day- wash the body with an anti-bacterial soap and cleanse the intimate area with this feminine wash or this mousse. Scrub the body with a loofah or body brush every 2 or 3 days to break up oil plugs that build up around hair follicles and skin glands.
  • Change out of sweaty clothes and bathe immediately after exercising. Do not re-wear exercise clothes without washing them.
  • Any cuts or scrapes on the skin should be cleaned and bandaged properly to limit chance of infection.
  • Eat a well balanced diet to prevent the accumulation of toxins in the body.Eat 5 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables and drink at least 8 glasses of water daily.
