Cysts on vagina lips

I am married and have two children. Since my second pregnancy, I seem to get boils or cysts (as one doctor called it) around my vagina. these used to appear every two weeks, and then dissapeared for a while. Recently they have returned and I can have anything from 2 - 4 at once. Please help!!! I thought if it was iron deficiency I would surely have them all over? Could you please advice?I would also appreciate if you could send me the advice to my email.

It could be ingrown hairs. This is commoner if you wax or shave.

I've been having them for a long time. I am 24 and had them even before I was sexually active. Although at age 10 I was molested by my father. Are they related to sex?

Dear Worrypot,

I have the very same problem. I have been getting these 'boils' since early this year. I have tried different soaps & even rinse off with tea tree oil. These boils come up, get swollen & sometimes painful. They reappear, and it seems to be the same spot, every few weeks.
