Skin - boils on genitals

Q. Doctor I get boils on my private area. I have observed that this boil comes immediately or a day after we have intercourse. I do get some rashes and itching sensation and then i have to apply some external medicine to heal that which almost becomes like a wound with puss. I get the boil either on the clitoris, inside the clitoris or the area of penetration. I sometimes use Betadine or Soomag to heal that and it takes few days to heal up. Please advise.

A.  Most likely you are suffering from candidal vulvovaginitis. Examination of your husband and you both is mandatory. Simple vaginal examination with a KOH preparation of discharge and a Grams stained smear can clinch the diagnosis. Depending upon frequency of this problem, a blood sugar examination may be required. May be your husband may have the same problem. Consult a dermatologist/Venereologist for appropriate antifungal therapy on confirmation of your diagnosis.
