    an itchy boil could be a hemorrhoid? regardless of what it is, its causing you discomfort and pain and anything that does that needs to be addressed. that is a sign your body is giving for you to be alerted that something isn't right. do not pop it. you can cause an infection. you could cause damage especially since it is a sensitive area. i suggest you visit your doctor or gyno immediately. you'll likely have it drained to release the pus and the pressure. you'll get tested for STDs and get cultures and blood tests taken.

    I would strongly advise against attempting to pop the cyst yourself, as this can cause further complications and lead to infection. It is important to seek medical attention for this issue as soon as possible. A medical professional will be able to determine the exact cause of the cyst and provide you with the appropriate treatment options, which may include draining the cyst, prescribing medication, or recommending other forms of therapy.

    In the meantime, you can try to relieve some of the pain and discomfort by applying a warm compress to the area for 10-15 minutes at a time. It is also important to keep the area clean and dry to help prevent infection.

    Again, I strongly advise you to see a doctor as soon as possible to properly diagnose and treat the issue.
