For past 3 months i've been menstruating from my pee hole. And i had itchiness in vagina n pee hole area.Now its even more itchy and i hv a boil at labia vagina
Hi, You seem to have two problems. One is a folliculitis which is a bacterial infection. Second is a fungal infection of the groin which is candidiasis. Both of these are quite common after menstruation. Do not worry. You can use an antibiotic cream for the boil at present till it heals. Later you can use an antifungal cream. Hope it helps Dr Geetika Paul
