Hello, Welcome to Just answer!
When did you notice the lump?
this cyst type thing 2 days ago
How big is it?
its in the crease of my leg
its about 2 by 2 inches
2 by 1 im sorry
The area you are describing is groin. can you tell me where exactly is the lump?
Ok, I got it
if i open my legs its in the crease of my upper leg and the vagina
Do you see any skin color change or opening?
Do you have any pain or does it feel warm?
because of its location its painfull
if it were anywhere else it would not hurt i think
thank you for the information. It looks like you have got folliculitis which is the infection of hair follicle.
hum...........what do I do?
Many times, you can treat it at home with conservative measures such as cleaning it with antiseptic solution and using OTC neosporin
thats what I am doing :)
You can also take OTC pain meds such as ibuprofen
good so I am going about it right
You will see improvement in about a week.
how long should i wait until I see a Doctor if its still there?
Yes, you are doing it right.
ok got it! Thank you! This sight is awesome!
But make sure to see your doctor when you see the area yellow or you have severe pain and discharge with fever
Thank you for this!!!! OK I will.
because this will suggest abscess formation which may require drainage
Should I lance it at all with a sterile needle or no?
you are welcome!
thank you for visiting just answer
No, we don't recommend that. It will drain on it's own.
well worth the 24 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!
