Hi Gracey,

Thank you for your question. Are you sure they are boils and not something else? Have you been tested for STDs? Do you have any other symptoms besides the noticeable lesions? Do you have any discomfort in the public area?

Another question would be, do you shave your public area as this is also common to occur with shaving bumps.

Can you please provide us with a little more information so we may be able to help you?
