Either one: Either fungal infectioni or certain bacterial infections can do this. "Oozing fluid" suggests a fairly severe infection, so it may not be safe to attempt over-the-counter treatment, and it's possible you would benefit from an oral antibiotic prescription.

What kind of infection causes the vulva to have bumps no puss & a strong musky or mildew smell even after showers? No itching, burning, or redness.

More than 1 problem: No single infection is a likely cause of all these things. Genital area "bumps" have many causes -- folliculitis (often from shaving), herpes, warts, molluscum contagiosum, others. Strong vaginal odor usually means bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of bacteria, or trichomonas, an STD. If you are sexually active, you also need testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia. See a doctor soon! ...Read more

Boil in inner thigh,treat w warm compress & amox,less pain & redness, no draining of pus bcos wound healed,but ders hard part below the skin,is it ok?

Residual infection: The hard, leathery, often darkened skin @ the site of a boil is residual inflammation from the skin infection. The skin should soften over time, but cd leave a scar. I wd say at this point, it's normal. But watch for fevers, more drainage, or worsening symptoms that may mean the infection (boil) is coming back. Also get checked for MRSA & diabetes (which predispose to boils) if this is not 1st one ...Read more
