Hi doctor,

I have a boil near my vagina. I had it for a week and it did not cause any discomfort. But, from yesterday, it is causing some discomfort. I do not feel any pain during urination. Kindly recommend a cure.



Welcome to

I had gone through all the details posted.

  • Is there only one boil or many? Is it Itching?
  • Do you have any whitish discharge per vagina? Are you sexually active?
  • If it is one, then it is commonly due to bacterial infection.
  • Kindly use tablet Clindatec 300 mg (Clindamycin) twice a day in the morning and night for seven days.
  • Keep the area clean. Use Abzorb dusting powder (Clotrimazole) on private area and keep the area dry.

Thank you doctor,

No, I am not sexually active. I have just one boil and there is no white discharge. I have attached the picture of it for additional reference.



Welcome back to

I had gone through the data and picture posted (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • As it is one boil I suggest tablet Clindatec 300 mg and Abzorb dusting powder at the private area after a bath. Keep the area dry. This will suffice.
