Ask a Gynecologist and Get Answers to Your Ob-Gyn Questions ASAP
Hello, I would be happy to assist you.
I would recommend you visit an ob/gyn. You may need antibiotics to help this resolve. In the meantime, soak in a warm/hot bath with Epsom salt daily. This can help the pores open and drain any fluid trapped within it. The hair would then eventually make its way to the surface.
You mean it keeps returning and you are soaking every day in Epsom Salt?
I depends on how large it is, but this is possible, yes. He/she may try antibiotics first if it is still relatively small. If it is large, it may need to be drained.
Do you currently have an ob/gyn?
That's when its expensive. As a new patient, the initial evaluation can be $150.
You can try contacting your local health department or Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood provides gyn services at reduced costs and they are nationwide. You can find the location nearest you at www.plannedparenthood.com.
If it is forming puss it is because it has become infected. You will need antibiotics to get this to resolve now that it is infected.
If this happens in the future is is best not to try to dig it out and do the soaks in Epsom salt only. When a blister forms you can burst it and continue soaking, but allow the hair to make it to the surface on its own.
No, we would use something better for the skin like Bactrim or Keflex.
You're so welcome.
