Normal boils occur from infected hair follicles. Recurrent boils in different areas can be a sign of MRSA. ...Read more

You may have a...: Bartholin's cyst. This is an abscess that can occur on either side of the inner vagina near its entrance.

Takes some time: Sounds like you 2 may be colonized with bacteria causing these boils. Try usi g hibiclens wash (sold at most drug stores) daily for 2 weeks to clear the colonization. Another option is taking a bleach bath (1/2 cup bleach) in an entire tub of bath water 2 or 3 times a week. This may decrease or eliminate this problem. Also be sure not to share personal hygiene items. ...Read more
