What causes itchy and painful boils after intercourse?
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The possible causes for the boils that you are getting are -
Folliculitis: hair follicles are present on the Labia.
When hair follicles get crushed because of clothes or intercourse etc they can become infected.These are most commonly the result of superficial staphylococcus bacterial infection.
This will usually present as painful inflammatory swelling which will discharge pus or blood.
Though you are not having typical symptoms we cannot exclude the possibility of herpes also.
As at first it can also present with painful area, later lesions, crusting etc can occur.
As far as the treatment is concerned, apply warm compresses and keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also avoid wearing tight fitting clothes and wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and underwear. Wash the area well with an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as Neosporin are also useful.
In case the lesions worsen oral antibiotics and pain killers may be needed.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
