Hi I have a...

Hi I have a bump near my groin area and I’m a little worried about it. It’s been there for atleast a month if not more. It doesn’t itch it kinda looks like a pimple no white head. There’s another bump close to it maybe only centimeters apart.

Doctor's Assistant: When did pimple first appear? Have you used any medication for this?

I want to say mid to late January. No I have used any medication, I thought it was just acne and would go on it’s own but it’s still there. It doesn’t bother me but it’s concerning

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a dermatologist about pimple?

No

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

Not that can think of at this moment

23. Female

This is skin gland inflammation.

Nothing worrisome.

These would go away on its own.

Usually no treatment is needed.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Is it normal for it to be there for more than a month?

Yes, it is normal.

These may stay for even 12 weeks.

Do not scratch it and avoid shaving on it.

One last question, what are the ways it could have formed?

It can be formed due to may reason;

1) Increased sweating.

2) Cloth irritation.

3) Clogged glands

4) Scratching.

5) Mild hair follicle inflammation.
