How do I get rid of the scarring and why is it that I get these bumps?

So from a young age I had recived a large bump around my vagina I had went to the doctor and told me it was a boil. As I got older I started to receive one once every 4 to 5 months. I haven't received any in awhile but now I'm left with really bad scaring to where the skin is really thin in those areas.

I recommend getting a formal evaluation with a scarring expert. These scars may be improved with lasers and excision. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
