Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question.
Since when you have this problem ?
Is there any discharge from that knot ?
What is the size of that knot ?
i noticed the knott yesterday not discharge
Has it increased in size ?
Is it hard or soft to touch ?
Is it more hot then the rest of the body ?
Do you have fever ?
not that i can tell
Have you done any tests for this ?
no tests i am jsut trying to find out what it is
Do you have any previous medical problems like diabetes ?
As this swelling started suddenly and has increased in size
plus it is tender to touch
so this most likely is a developing abscess.
This area is very prone to develop this problem
many reasons for this
presence of hair
this area gets very sweaty in many people
really so do i need to see a doc or will it jsut just go away?
and is also prone to trauma during sitting.
If you do not have excess pain and fever
then it can resolve in few days
most of them rupture
in few days with discharge of pus.
and in some cases when they cause fever and excess pain they need antibiotic treatment
anything i can do to make it go away?
As in your case it is increasing and area is very prone to get repeat infection so you need to get it treated.
Yes you can use over the counter pain killers to resolve the pain
and if it continues to grow and causes pain and fever then you may need to go to doctor
for prescription of antibiotics and possible drainage of abscess.
I hope this was helpful
