Get Rid of Vaginal Boils | Causes, Treatments for Boils on Vagina

Question: I have small boil like wounds on the surface of vagina and it definitely is not an STD because I’m only 16. They come and go yet they have nothing inside like water or blood and can be painful if pressed hard. What might this be?


A boil is a collection of fluid or pus, that develops, when a sweat gland or an oil gland or a hair follicle gets infected.
Boils occur quite frequently in the vestibule (area around the vagina).

Causes of Vaginal Boils:

  • Poor cleanliness measures
  • Excessive sweating in the groin
  • Poor hygiene, especially during menses
  • Frequent urinary tract infection
  • Soap that remains behind and is not washed off properly.
  • Undergarments that are not washed properly
  • Reduced water intake
  • Decreased immunity due to a faulty diet.

Treatment for Boils on Vagina:

  • Maintain utmost cleanliness and hygiene. While bathing splash lots of water around the vestibule, wear clean, washed panties, and take extra precautions during periods.
  • Check urinary tract infection. It may manifest as mild itching or burning during urination. Do not neglect it. Drink plenty of water. A minimum of 3 liters is recommended on a daily basis.
  • Apply hot water to the boil every 3 hours. This hastens the suppuration process and causes the boil to erupt.
  • Avoid touching or picking the boil.
  • Keep the area dry.
  • Use protection during intercourse.
  • Consume 2 flakes of raw garlic everyday. The enzymes present in garlic detoxify the entire body and aid in quick and complete healing.
  • Hepar sulph is a widely used homoeopathic remedy which promotes suppuration and painless discharge of the contents of the boil. It is especially indicated when there are splinter-like pains.
  • Boost your immunity by eating foods that are rich in vitamin C and bioflavanoids.

      Boil in vaginal area can be due to many reasons. It can be a bacterial infection. Sit in a tub containing warm water for 5 to 10 minutes two times in a day. It will relieve pain. You can put few grains of potassium permanganate (it is antiseptic) in the water. Also you may need antibiotics. Consult your doctor for the same.

      The probable cause for your problem is ingrown hair after shaving. When you shave against the direction of growth of pubic hair, there is always a risk of new hair growing inward. It leads to boils. So the first thing you should do is avoid shaving for few weeks. If at you shave, make sure you shave hairs in the direction of its growth. You can also try hair removing cream instead of shaving to prevent boils. Apply aloe vera gel which is soothing and has anti septic properties on the boil.

      A boil on the labia can develop as a result of pulled hair or an ingrown hair or even due to clogged sweat gland. It is a pus filled swelling caused from bacterial infection, and skin debris. If the boil is soft this means it is ready to drain. Apply warm compresses over the area. Alternatively sit in a tub filled with warm water for 15 minutes. Do this three times in a day. This will encourage the boil to get mature and it will drain easily. But this may take few days and you will have to bear the pain and other discomfort. You may need to take antibiotic during this period. Consult your doctor for appropriate antibiotic medicines. The other method is drainage of the boil by your doctor in a hospital. The doctor makes small incision on the boil and removes all pus. All aseptic precautions are taken during drainage procedure. This is followed by proper bandaging. The doctor also prescribes antibiotics and other medicines to ensure faster healing.
