I keep getting these painful abscesses around my vagina right before and after my period. I've been cleared of all stds?

These may be...?: If as described as recurring cyclically along with periods, one would consider if these are acne. Do you have similar conditions on face, neck, and trunk? How about your body hairs, thick, thin, or average? Also, such are not std-related. Therefore, collect the features, degree, and progress over time of these "abscesses" with its sequence of event, and bring those to dermatologist or gyn timely..

I have a 4 cm deep perrirectal abscess. Few days ago l started to get occasional stabbing in vagina. Cant see GP for a few days.

Emergency room: If you have a 4 cm perirectal abscess then you should be seen and evaluated immediately. If you can not visit a colorectal surgeon then the ER is the best option. Vaginal pain can be assessed later. You have a much bigger and more urgent problem. The abscess needs to be addressed now.

I've developed a swollen abscess type cyst in my inner vagina, on the side. It's painful. How can I rid this, or should I consult my dr?

Bartholin cyst: Generally this is just a blocked gland. Sit in a hot bath and then massage it to try and drain it. If it is persistently painful, it can be lanced by your doctor.

Can a boil, or skin abscess form beside the opening of a vagina? Where there is typically no hair? There are two heads to this swollen and painful lump. It looks white and level with the skin, almost like a burn that's starting to health.

Bartholin Glands: You may not have any symptoms if the Bartholin gland cyst is small. But a large cyst or an infected cyst (abscess) can cause symptoms.

Doxycyline is an antibiotic that the e.R doctor prescribe fotr a abscess that I have on my inner thigh towards my vagina. The medicine makes me vomite?

Doxycycline: Doxycycline makes many people have nausea and vomiting. It is not an allergic reaction. There are probably other antibiotics that could be used that would not bother you. Enquire. Quite often just draining an abscess will fix it - no antibiotics required.

Need to evaluate: Do you have ingrown hair? Are you diabetic? These are only two of the issues that need to be excluded. If you are overweight, that would not be helping either. It would be prudent to see a doctor for an in-person examination. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

Typically: Typically these types of lesions on the vagina occur not too long after shaving or can occur from small cuts on the vagina due to scratching or other minor trauma. You will need antibiotic treatment if this is in fact what you have. Please see a doctor for an examination in order to confirm this diagnosis. Best of luck.

Bartholin abscess?: This sounds like inflammation of your Bartholin gland, which is one of the glands that produces sexual lubricant; there is one on each side of the vaginal opening. Some but not all such infections are due to STD, especially gonorrhea or chlamydia. See a doctor ASAP; you probably need an antibiotic and maybe an incision to drain pus. Good luck!
