Use Of Boils During Menstruation?
Good morning doctor, I want to ask right now I am menstruating and at the same time I have boils around my thighs and the amount is not just one, is it safe to use ointment boils when menstruating again? Please enlighten the doctor, thank you
Hello Ayu, Thank you for the question
A boil is a red bump on the skin that contains pus and aches. Ulcers are formed due to bacterial infections in the hair follicles, causing inflammation and the appearance of red bumps. Boils can appear on any part of the body. This condition usually does not require special handling of a doctor. Do you know the content of the ointment that you use? If this ointment is used to treat ulcers, you can use it. Menstruation is not a condition that prevents you from undergoing treatment.
However, you should consult a doctor if ulcers get bigger, accompanied by fever, do not heal for more than two weeks, or recur frequently. The doctor needs to do an examination on your boils and determine the next treatment that can be in the form of antibiotics or surgery.
Please also do the following suggestions:
do a warm compress on this boil to help cure
clean broken boils with a clean cloth
Avoid sharing personal items with others
Hopefully this information helps you.
