Every time I have sex I am getting cysts. They are not bartholin's cysts. They appear above my clitoris, on my inner and outer labia and thigh crease?

Every time I have sex I am getting cysts. They are not bartholin's cysts. They appear above my clitoris, on my inner and outer labia and thigh crease?

Cysts: What you describe sounds as if you may have an infection or other condition that recurs with sex. You didn't mention whether the cyst is painful, appears in the same areas each time, or if there are things that make it worse. Some of these answers may help with diagnosing the cause. I would have the cyst looked at by your doctor while it is still there so they can determine the cause. ...Read more

Bump on crease where leg meet pubic area. Herpes or cyst? Happened right after I shaved

Bump on crease where leg meet pubic area. Herpes or cyst? Happened right after I shaved

Bacterial infection?: It could be a small bacterial infection or ingrown hair. Use warm soaks several times a day and see a doctor if it gets worse. This shaving trend worries me. Besides making people look like jail-bait, it can increase the risk of bacterial infections, including mrsa. I've seen some nasty cases in which men lost parts of their body they wanted to keep. If you don't like pubes, trim, don't shave! ...Read more

I have been getting chronic cysts on the inside of my thigh, even while keeping the area clean to avoid further issues. Is there anything I can do?

See dermatologist: If u have not done so already, be sure to see a dermatologist. A true cyst has a “skin” encasing the cyst which needs to be carefully removed to avoid recurrence. Many things, even acne/abscess can look like cysts. Further. The correct diagnosis would make a large difference in management e.g. antibiotics, steroid creams or even surgery. wud need to review prior history, meds, etc further too ...Read more

I was wondering about a cyst I have on back of my thigh it burst open yesterday and has rancid smelling brown mucus coming out should I be worried?

Possibly Infectious: Most cysts have clear fluid drainage. Without seeing the lesion I would not be able fully tell you. But, from those details it sounds like it could be complicated with a possible infectious etiology considering the color of the discharge and odor. I would recommend seeing your Primary Care Physician and make sure you do not need an antibiotic. If you develop fevers, sooner rather than later. ...Read more

Had hysterectomy 6 weeks ago. During exam found out I have a ruptured cyst, how long does the pain last & is it normal to have pain in thighs as well?

Ruptured cyst: I am assuming this is a ruptured ovarian cyst from an ovary (s) that were left post hysterectomy. The fluid from the cyst can irritate the peritoneum (lining of the inside body cavity) that can cause pelvic pain. Radiating nerve pain to the tops of the thighs have also been know to occur but is short lived. Have your GYN MD do a pelvic ultrasound to see if the cyst is still there or something else. ...Read more

What can I do about cyst that grow in and around the inside of my thighs and vaginal area? I have suffered with this problem for over 12 years now. I need answers to what causes this condition and how to treat and or prevent it from happening again.

You: You may have hidradenitis suppurativa, which is a condition where one gets cysts and boils in the groin, armpits, and gluteal crease. It is a chronic and recurrent condition that can be quite painful at times. There are many options including antibiotic creams/gels, oral antibiotics, accutane, and surgical treatment. Often, draining the lesions can also give some immediate improvement in symptoms. I would recommend you see a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment options to help improve your situation. I hope that helps! ...Read more
