I have lump on each (outer) labia majora. They fill up with fluid which i blood stained. They weep constantly and make the skin itch. Could you give me an idea as to this. I am used to getting abcesses which become infected. Could this be an abscess which is not yet infected.
JA: The Doctor can help. Just a couple quick questions before I transfer you. What are all your symptoms? Have you talked to a doctor about the abscess?
Customer: I have frequently seen my GP about the recurrent abscesses, but this is different to them. Symptoms is swelling and itchyness. Not sore except on occassion. Can sometimes bleed.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about the swelling?
Customer: Yes, previolusly. This has been going on a while now.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Diabetic (Type 2). Previous stroke > 12 years ago. Have had surgery for absecces in the past to drain them but they were infected.

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Sorry no. There is nothing visible.

They sound like infected cysts

Any OBGYN can examine you and be sure

sometimes they need to be marsupialized which means turned inside out

so they don't fill up with infection/blood/etc
