Hello doctor,

I do not have any problems while walking. What are the symptoms of STD? Do I have an STD? I am worried.

Kindly advise.



Welcome to

I understand your concern. I have gone through the details and seen the image you shared (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity). You have a vaginal boil, not an STD (sexually transmitted disease). Do you have itching, a foul odor, or a discharge from the vagina?

I suggest the below steps:

  • Keep the area dry.
  • Maintain proper hygiene.
  • Use a feminine wash to clean the area.
  • Wear loose cotton undergarments.
  • Avoid intense workouts and exercise.

The boil will subside within three to four days. However, do let me know in case of discharge.

I hope this helps.

Feel free to ask any questions or share additional information.

Thank you.

Hello doctor,

Thank you for the response. There is no itching, discharge, or odor. However, I walk 10000 steps a day.

Kindly suggest.



Welcome back to

I suggest you discontinue walking for a few days till you are fine.

I hope this helps.

God bless.
