Customer Question
Hi! I've been having...

Hi! I've been having an issue with a cystic pimple on the outside of my vaginal area for a couple weeks. It has not reduced in size and is painful. I am wondering if I should consult my local OBGYN for medication. I've also been on accutane for 4 months and i'm surprised it hasn't reduced in size at all.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I use a warm washcloth with pressure on the area and it seems to help a bit.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I've had bloodwork done in the past and STD checks and everything seems normal.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
