Vaginal Boils

A vaginal boil is a pus-filled, painful bump in the pubic area. The staphylococcus aureus bacteria infects the sac containing the hair's root. It can also occur due to skin cuts caused by the razor while shaving. It will appear as a red, swollen bump that is painful to touch. Applying a warm cloth around the area helps eliminate the pus. Antibiotics help in treating recurrent vaginal boils.
