Abscess in labia

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess in labia


Avatar f tn I don't remember my labia minora being like this before had my bartholin abscess removed. When I had the abscess it got seriously infected to the point I had severe flu-like symptoms, the body chills, night sweats, temp of 103, and some serious discomfort(which didn't come till it got ridiculously swollen). It also was so swollen I couldn't tell what was what and it was HUGELY gross big. Could that have caused the enlargement in my labia minora?
Avatar n tn Let me tell you from FIRST HAND experience because just had emergency surgery because my outer lip got SUPER swollen and in just 2 days it showed to be an aggressive abscess in just 2 days that abscess got 2 inches deep and took over my entire outer lip that it looked like I had elephantitus and the open sore was getting larger at a very rapid rate of speed, something told me to go to the emergency room that my life was in danger because of it so "from the time I got there to the time the s
Avatar n tn The pus forms inside the abscess as the body responds to the bacteria. Antibiotics are not required in the treatment of a simple abscess, unless the infection is spreading into the skin around the wound known as "cellulitis" (which I had).
Avatar n tn two days ago I found this red painful bump on my labia and it grew in size doubled in two days time now it looks like two of them side by side I have also had what I thought to be pink eye for 3 weeks went to doc for eyes and it was weird almost like he wasn't sure to treat me for pink eye but he gave me drops it is not working though my eyes seem to be getting worse they are very blurred and red and I can't stand light right now! any suggestions????
Avatar n tn HI- I have had redness and irritation in my labia minora and it burns a little during urination but also not during too. I was wondering if anyone has had this before becuase i am starting to worry a bit. Thanks.
Avatar f tn An abscess is an infection that usually starts by a small cut in the skin that allows bacteria to get in. Either way you should definitely go to the Dr.
Avatar m tn So I've been having cottage cheese like vaginal discharge, odorless but somewhat itchy, and my left inner labia is swollen beyond belief, a couple inches more than normal it hangs down and is very hard to touch. I can't walk, or function, it hurts to sit or do anything basically. Do I maybe have a Bartholin duct abscess and thrush as well?
Avatar n tn there is absolutely no way for you to tell which of the 2 above scenarios fits your case. Since change in size and/or pain in a lump is one of the 7 warning signs of cancer, you need to get in to see a doctor as soon as possible and determine which it is. In all likihood it will be a simple cyst and easy and cheap to treat, but you do not want to fool around and wait to find out, because if it is something more, then early detection and treatment is crucial to your long term health.
Avatar f tn These can become painful and swollen, and an abscess can form. This often causes blockage in the main duct from the gland, and a cyst develops. This is felt as a hard swelling.In such cases, antibiotics may be helpful, or surgical treatment might be required. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Avatar f tn I take pretty good care of myself and usually have no major issues. However, a few nights ago I noticed a small bump on my labia majora when I went to the bathroom. Besides minor soreness to the touch, I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary, so I assumed it was just an ingrown hair or pimple and vowed to deal with it in the morning. When I woke up it had grown and was more painful. It's been only 3 days since the initial sighting and it has multiplied in size.
Avatar m tn In the early evening Tuesday I noticed my labia was tender. Upon further inspection I could see that the area was red and swollen. Today is Thursday, and I can hardly move. The area is so swollen that it feels hard, from midway down the side to the perianal area. It hurts to sit, stand, walk, even lay down. It is constant pain, and it is one of the worst pains I can ever remember. I left work early yesterday and called in today. I have a job where I sit all day long.
Avatar n tn i also believe i may have mild yeast infections. in btwen the labia looks like a white, skim milk like mucous. another symptom i have is severe odour in my urine.
Avatar f tn I shaved about a week ago and a day or so later i noticed a small bum on my right labia majora and thought it was a ingrown hair ....but i could not find it....2 days ago I noticed my right labia majora is now swollen and very painful if i touched it...i tried squeezing it but all i get is clear fluid...there is no head like a pimple or anything.....when you first look at it ..it just looks really swollen ..does anyone have a clueto what it could be and how to get rid of it, i must add...
Avatar n tn I have an on-and-off pain on my right minora labia. Every once in awhile my right labia becomes extremely sensitive (top of labia, small area, therefore could even possibly be the clitoris) so sensitive that it pains me with any friction or even touch. the area gets rather red too but have not noticed any swelling or anything. I have (normal) discharge, white, odourless.
Avatar m tn the doctors also said it's not a bartholin cyst because that is normally lower towards the vaginal opening while mine is somewhere in the middle/tip of the labia minora. nothing i seem to do helps. changing my way of eating/hygiene has nothing to do with this. it doesn't get better all it seems to do is get bigger by each period. could this be a hormonal thing since it comes by menstrual cycle? what do you think it is? what can i do to make it go away?
Avatar n tn I'm a Filipino girl and i'm very bothered about the small lump that appeared in my labia minora. It just appeared when i have my menstruation visit.
Avatar n tn I usually notice a numb pain in the labia minora next to the clitoris. Although at one occurrence a small and hard pea sized lump developed there. This had a numb but intense pain when ever any pressure was applied. Of course, the rougher the sex the worse the symptoms. I have always treated this by wearing close fitting comfortable underwear that restricted friction on the area. I also take an anti-inflammatory over the counter medication such as ibuprofen or similar.
Avatar m tn I've been in EXCRUCIATING pain for going onto 5 days now. I have what seems to be an abscess near my vagina on the right side, it's roughly the size of a large marble, and looks quite bruised in the center. I read to keep warm compresses on it, and soak in Epsom salt to bring it to a head. I've tried this for 3 days, at least 4 times a day for 20 minutes. I thought I was making progress due to the fact that it drained a good bit earlier and decreased in size.
Avatar f tn well im 17 years old my last time i had sex was about 8 months ago and i havent felt no different symptons but on june the 13 i felted a itchy feelin in ma vagina and yesterday i decided to look and i had a bump between ma labia minora but all da way at the bottom and is creeping me out wat can it be?
2130859 tn?1336036048 I've heard of a lot of women getting these on their labia (I currently have one) and they usually go away on their own. All of my cysts (HS disease) swell to be the size of a quarter or bigger, turn purple with a black dot in the middle, surface and drain on their own. If it is a cyst/boil do NOT pop it. Let it open on its own, pushing/applying pressure can just make it more infected and cause it to abscess.
Avatar f tn Recently I've picked up cycling about 40-50 miles per week along with strenuous training and noticed a solo abscess on my labia after a cycle session where I had tight fitting underwear. I popped the abscess and some white fluid came out, and it's still raised but steadily getting smaller with neosporin application. I have never had sex and the last time oral happened was late 2013.
Avatar f tn I understand antibiotics are typically given to accompany an abscess, but I'm very against antibiotics in general and as long as it's cleaned properly should clear up. If not, or it appears infected, I'll shell out the ridiculous amount of money for a doctor to give me some meds.
Avatar f tn about 6 months ago i had a small hard like lump on my labia minora. it went away in about 2-3 weeks. now a couple of days ago i noticed another small hard lump on my labia minora (in the inside near my vaginal opening but still on the bottom of the labia minora). it does not hurt or itch. the only reason i noticed it was because i was showering. it seems to be just under the skin. i do not notice a 'head' on it and it does not seem like it is a pimple.
9259662 tn?1402682983 old woman who noticed a large, hard, very painful lump/cyst on my left labia a week ago last Wed. It continued to grow and become more painful. I went to my PCP on Tues. and after examining it, she decided to lance it. She then packed it so that it would continue to drain. At that time, I also had another smaller one on the right side of my labia. When I went back yesterday to have this repacked for the 3rd time, she noticed two more lumps/cysts..
Avatar n tn At the present time I have a Seton in place and am on Bactrim. My question is a week ago I developed an abscess on my outer labia. I have not yet seen my surgeon and do not want to because I am tiried and exhausted from constantlly having abscesses drained, is it possible that this abscess which is on the right side of my labia could be tracking from the rectal abscess that is on the left side of my rectum??
Avatar m tn Hi everyone, for 5 years I've been haunted by this abscess in my groin/labia. It comes and goes, sometimes it's gigantic (REALLY) and sometimes just a painful, red, inflamed, deep seated "nodule" (so it doesn't disfigure me completely, but still makes it awfully painful to walk). I had the abscess drained at the hospital once (never again, the anestesia hurt like hell and did not numb the area at all... urgh!) and the material (the pus) was sent for culture....
Avatar m tn I was itching and scratching and then all of a sudden my labia is swollen and hard, both sides. I've tried googling and most talk about some B-word cyst but it doesn't look like that. It's closer to my clit and urethra than my vagina. I took photos but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post them here. I can't find anything that looks like it on the internet; I can e-mail you photos if you think that would help. I'm really worried. It doesn't hurt but it's very uncomfortable and weird.
Avatar f tn To answer the questions What are your “exact” symptoms (swelling in clitoris, labia, sensitivity, etc) ?SWELLING IN CLITORIS AND ONE INNER LABIA When did this start for you, meaning- after sex, after a yeast infection or just out of the blue? AFTER SEX How long have you been experiencing pain/irritation? PAIN AND IRRITATION AFTER URINATING Have you had bladder infections (UTI's), Cysts, yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis (ex.
Avatar f tn took a shower, and when I was washing down there, the right side of my inner labia majora felt tender. Almost like it was a bruised feeling. When I got out, I looked in the mirror and it was slightly swollen on that side. It is somewhat tender to touch and is a little uncomfortable in certain positions and at times when I walk? I am freaking out...not sure if it could be an abscess ( i dont see anything or any noticable bumps).
Avatar n tn I also suffer from EXTREME itching in the inter-labia region and anal opening. This itch started in 2008. The itch is so bad that I get confused whether it's itchiness or pain. I can't ignore it; it keeps me up at night, and wakes me up in the morning. It feels as if there are worms under my skin, but of course there isn't. During the whole time that I was suffering, I found this thread and it made me feel comforted that I am not crazy and that unfortunately many women suffer from this.
