Can high blood sugar cause boil in genital area?
Hi,

Women with poor sugar control are more susceptible to vaginal infections, boils, and discharges. So yes high blood sugar can contribute to a boil in this area. Putting a warm compress may help bring it to a head and open. Depending on the size and location you may need to get it lanced (or cut) to reduce it's size, and may need to take antibiotics.

Hope this helps.
