Question about STD's and abscess

Will having chlamydia or any other STD cause an abscess on your inner thigh? As of right now, no pus has came out. I plan on using a hot compress to help it to drain later on, oh by the way, I am female (if that matters any).

you need to be seen today or tomorrow and get this looked at. It's not due to chlamydia and could be many number of things but you need a proper exam to get a diagnosis.
Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)

Thanks for your input. I cannot be seen until the 29th. What other infections do you know of that would cause an abscess? And i told my doctor about it, but she didnt seem too concerned about it.

waiting over a week to have these looked at isn't in your bed interest. be seen elsewhere if you can't be seen until the 29th.
