    since 3 to 4 years now although I never had a sugar check up and am not on medication
    Dr. Olabisi A answered:

    Good to know. You should go for a blood sugar check preferably a fasting level. High blood sugar can predispose to having recurrent boils. If the boil is close to the labia majora it may be a bartholin's cyst that needs to be incised and drained. Please see a Doctor for a proper examination and treatment. All the best.

    Hello madam. I understand your concern. You need not worry. It is important to rule out the cause and find a lasting solution to this issue. If it is normal and it is not a bartholin cyst then you may need to improve on your personal hygiene. Cheers.

    OH okay I'll try and go for a check up then i just hope and pray it's not as serious as am thinking
    Dr. Olabisi A answered:

    It probably is not. Please put your mind at rest. A check up is important every few months or yearly to detect any abnormalities so treatment can be given on time before complications set in. Have a good night rest.

    Hello. If the ulcer contains pus and is multiple this is probably herpes simplex. See a Doctor for evaluation and management. Take care

    Please can you be more elaborate i can barely understand what you mean
    Dr. Olabisi A answered:

    Hello. Is the boil in groups or multiple? Do they contain pus or fluid? This is more consistent with herpes simplex infection especially if you get recurrences. Otherwise check your blood sugar.

    Good evening, how was work today and the fasting? May Allah accept our ibadah. No it's not in group, just that One i sent. And it only brings out pus once in a while like when am almost to see my period or whenever i have a bad metabolism i mean like when I purge or when my excreter becomes strong it makes d boil sour and makes it bring out pus atimes it even brings out water or light colored blood that stains my pant atimes. Though the pus and d rest doesn't come out in large quantity it comes as little as my finger tips would be enough to wipe off and atimes it's itchy

    Thank you. It was fine. It is likely due to a high blood sugar. Otherwise improving your hygiene will help. Have a good night.

    And I was wondering do you think it can affect me sexually or reproductively?
    Dr. Olabisi A answered:

    I dont think so. It is good to have a sexually transmitted infection screen though if you have had any history of such. Early teatment prevents complications.

    I will not think so. Thank you getting back to me. It is also not a sexually transmitted infection so put your mind at rest. Have a blood sugar check and improve on your personal hygiene. Take care madam.
