Hello Karen,

Thanks for using Justanswer for your question.

Sometimes people get folliculitis which is actually ingrown hair. You would have some other symp***** *****ke pain or redness, or itching.

Perhaps your weight has settled and it is just a fat pad.

If you start to have any symptoms such as a fever, redness, drainage, pain, then I would suggest you see your gynecologist for testing.

If you have other information about this or questions, don't hesitate to right me back on a reply.

Thanks, Susan
