Miss Lady ( USA Georgia )
18 Mar 2019
Having reoccurring boils, on the right side of my labia: opening of my vagina. It’s affecting my sexual life with my S/O, whom is a male. I have a history of sinus problems; which is hereditary. I have had blood work done and everything came back negative but I did see a trace of gonorrhea. I took all my pills for it when prescribed but now, after having it lanced in the ER last year, I researched deeper and found that boils are apart of a MRSA/staphylococcal infection.

Please help me as I am a 35 year old woman who wants to conceive a baby soon. (USA)

The abscess on my mother's back is red, hard , pvery painful and half inch radius size without opening. It had subsided 3months ago but now there's a recurrence. Previously the surgeon had advised immediate surgery. Currently a GP ha prescribed some medicine saying if it doesn't subside with this then surgery required. She's 70years old with other medical complications and I want to avoid surgery. Please advise.
