Please help...what can this be? (TMI...be warned)

This is REALLY embarassing but I really want to know. I get boil-like bumps and my pubic areas. The fester up really quickly and create a puss pocket under the skin. I have to squeeze them to bring the puss out and it stings SOO badly. They are rather lage...(at the surface they're just red raised bumps but underneath it's a pocket about the size of a dime filled with puss. I get them on my skin on the sides of my vagina, and on my breasts. My 15 month old daughter gets them too but my DH doesn't. (cont.)

  • if i were you, i'd get some tea tree oil (its an essential oil, can be found most places like health food stores, and i think walgreens and probably even walmart have it), mix some drops in a spray bottle of water, and use it daily just as a spray on wipe off type thing. it is a natural antiseptic and i would think it would help keep your pores empty. also, try to include more garlic in your diet, a natural antibiotic

  • (cont) I am COMPLETELY STD free )I am pregnant so I was just tested three weeks ago. I have had them for about five months (before I got prego). My DR and my DDs DR says it's nothing but bacteria and will go away and they won't give us anything for it.I've NEVER had this problem before...how could it just be bacteria and why won't they treat us with an antibiotic if it is? What else could it be? We get them one after the other no matter how much we keep clean..I've started us on two baths a day now and nothing helps!!!

  • (OP again) I can't change doctors...I have to go with who they assigned to me. I don't have money to pay another DR for a second opinion.

  • It definately sounds like a bacterial infection to me.. You might want to be careful for staph... You really need to be putting some bacitracin ointment on this..

  • it is safe for your daughter, i use it on my son everyday (we cloth diaper & wipe, he's 16 months). some people have a stinging reaction if you use it straight, thats why i recommend diluting it
