Boils, need advice!

Ok so it's not abnormal for me to get boils but usually they are on the meat of my inner thighs or under my butt cheeks. However, I've discovered one right by my vaginal opening :( I thought I just had a dry spot during sex that was causing discomfort but after inspection in the shower, I know it's a big painful boil. I have topical antibiotics... It's not IN the opening, just very close... Would it be ok to use it? Anyone else get them in that area??
