BOIL DOWN THERE

I think I may have a boil down there?? I'm not sure. At first it started out as just an red area of skin with a little itching, now it hurts a little bit and has a head like a pimple. Has anyone else experienced this during pregnancy? If so, what is the treatment and what were your symptoms. I'm going to call my doctor when they get in this morning, but wanted to see if anyone else experienced this. The "boil" is located where the hair grows. Can this hurt the baby????? Thanks!

I get these alot, even when not pg. My sister is a nurse and she said to place a warm/hot wet wash cloth on the affected area. Several times a day. It should go down in a day or two. They are not pleasant, I get them where my undies rub the skin, very painful. I don't think it can hurt the baby, but call your doctor to be sure.

Thanks Cathy!!! Mine is right on that seam where the crotch of your underwear begin in the front. Do you get them in the same spot each time. I wonder if this will be an ongoing occurance....?? Oh well, its totally worth it. Thanks again!

That is where I get them. Not fun. I luckily haven't gotten one since I have been pregnant, maybe it is because i am wearing less restricting clothing. More roomy and a lot less rubbing.

I have gotten them before too. My doctor said to sit in warm water in the tub. Just enough to cover the boil and add some epsom salts to help draw it out. They are harmless, just not very pleasent.

I get these too. My doctor said to make sure to use anti-bacterial soap too. As well as hold a warm compress on it..and use some sort of bacterial ointment on it too if you have some.
