Reasons you have vaginal boil

A female organ boil is a painful lump that forms in the female organ area. It usually develops due to an infection in the Bartholin's glands, which are positioned on either side of the female organ opening and make lubrication for the female organ.

According to MedicalNewsToday, some of the reasons for female organ boil include:

1. Skin conditions. A skin condition that result in female organ boils is folliculitis, which happens when bacteria infect a hair follicle.

This infection is often a negative effect of irritation resulting from shaving or waxing hair from the pubic area. A bump may make you feel pain and start small but can grow larger and turn to boil.

2. Cysts. Another common contributing to female organ boil is a Bartholin gland cyst. This kind of cyst is brought on by an infection of the Bartholin glands, which are positioned beneath the skin close to the female organ opening. These glands can get blocked, leading to a cyst or round, hard bump to form. If the cyst gets infected, it can lead to a boil formation.

3. "Sexually" transmitted infections. STIs and genital piercings can also lead to female organ boils.

Women with oily skin or those with thicker pubic hair growth are more at risk for female organ abscesses.
