no vaginal discharge,I am sexually active. I am a type one diabetic so I do get lots of yeast infections but this doesn't seem to related to the vagina or rectum at all, its between my left leg and left vaginal lip, base of bum. I do excersize alot and its the same place that hurt after white water rafting.
Thanks for the valuable info you had given.I've taken a close look at your question & the reply and come up with the following answer:
The symptoms you have described can be due to folliculitis.It is inflammation of one or more hair follicles.The damaged follicles are then infected with the bacteria staphylococcus.Another less likely possibility is of batholin's cyst or sebaceous cyst.
Most probably these symptoms are because of an infection in a hair follicle.
Apply ointment vagmycin vaginal cream.It is a broad spectrum antibiotic with an anti-fungal agent.It is available as over the counter without prescription.
Most times these don't get too big and the body can deal with them by itself. Bigger ones need treatment with antibiotics
If still the symptoms persists then you need to consult your doctor forexamination & accordingly oral antibiotics & other medications may beprescribed.
Hope this helped

There is nothing here externally that could be infected.It's not hot. Its deep and internal, could only be felt where its sore after pressing in. Could it be a pulled muscle? Should I try ice? Thank you
I am happy to answer your follow up question.
As you said that its not external & is not hot ,so there can be a possibility of sebaceous cyst as said above.
Sebaceous cysts are not dangerous.Placing a warm moist cloth (compress) over the area may help the cyst.If it is painful (as is yours) oral antibiotics are usually required.Also anti inflammatory medication will be required for pain relief.
So I advice you to make an appointment with your doctor for examination to confirm the exact cause & then antibiotics & other medications will be prescribed accordingly.
Till than take tab. Acetaminophenfrom the counter. It is available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription& will help you greatly.Hope this helped
