Sepsis: Until proven otherwise. Your condition is serious enough and needs to be addressed promptly. You have a vaginal abscess with fever and generalized symptoms and timely treatment is needed. Would recommend going to the closest ER for eval, further tests and prompt treatment.

Get seen now.: I completely agree with Dr. Pasniciuc. You are past the medications at home phase and need prompt medical assessment.
