my daughter has something that looks like a boil on her inner genital area.

it's hard and red and i had a friend look at it and she said it just might be a bug bite or pimple since their seems to be a little bit of white deep in it. it's doesn't seem to itch or hurt her when we touch it but it's their.

  • Don't break it or pop it like a pimp. You need to let your doctor see it. and let him/her check it out. let them know it doesn't hurt her. if it does break before you go to the doctor put a bandade on it. or keep it clean as best as you can.

  • Dont pop it. If it was a boil it would hurt her. just let her Dr. look at it.. Keep it clean i could be a bug bite, and you just need to put some med. on it..

  • the doctor said it was a cyst/abscess... they put her on anabotics and we go back tuesday- if it's still bad they'll drain it. poor baby.
