I recently started getting a burning sensation when I went to the bathroom. Then I got a stabbing pain like inside my vagina. So, I go into the doctor because my sypmtoms are similiar to those of a urinary tract infection. So I go in, I get tested from urinary tract, to STDs. Every thing comes back negative. But the doctor tells me I have 5 bumps down there that are "more than likely pimples." She gives me antiboitics for 10 days (cephalexin) and tells me if the sypmtoms dont subside to come back. So 10 days pass I go back in with the burning sensation still. She looks at me and tells me that I have a pimple. Its big, red, and burns! Its called folliculitis. From one of my hairs. Well, I thought in order to get that you gotta shave. I havent shaved in years. Anyhow, i still have this big red abscess down in my groin area. It hurts when I walk, it hurts when I wear underware, pants anything. I cant very well run around naked I have a 4 year old child. What should I do to help me get rid of this abscess? I have used hot packs, boil ointment, antibiotics, AZO and numerous other options out there. Does anyone know a home remedy to help a abscess pop?? PLease help!!! And thanks for your time for reading my post!!
