    Question about STD's and abscess
    stredicad posted:
    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).
    betsyo1967 responded:
    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 :)
    stredicad replied to betsyo1967's response:
    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.
    betsyo1967 replied to stredicad's response:
    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.
