Customer Question
I have a painful...

I have a painful bump in the groin area that's hard, very red and sore. Should I go see my doctor about this?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Just a couple of days - if any thing rubs against it, like my underwear or slacks, it's worse, warm compresses and using polysporin with a gauze pad over it seems to help.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nope-I think I might be allergic to a certain sanitary pad that I've been using because this is the 2nd time this has showed up after being off my period.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
