Boils/Pus on the butt crack
I'm at my 13 weeks and I'm having a big boils/pus on my butt crack. It's really uncomfortable and very painful. I've tried some home remedies but it doesn't work. Will it harm my baby & pregnancy?
See a doctor for antibiotics. There are some that are safe for pregnancy. If it gets too big, you’ll need surgery, so it’s better to get it treated early
Thanks! I'm having appointment with gynae tomorrow. Hoping for the best.
- Hi mummies, any of you experience boils on butt crack before? It is like a swollen lips but this one is on my butt crack skin. Is it normal during pregnancy? Not sure what’s the cause of it but I’m pretty sure cos of me been having a regular bowel movement lately?
It can happen with or without pregnancy. If it settles on it’s own, that’s okay. But if it gets bigger and becomes red and swollen, please see a doctor. You may need antibiotics. If it gets even worse, you may need a minor surgery to release the pus. (You can read up on pilonidal cysts/abscesses) Take care and hope it gets better soonNZ
