Is the lump painful?
It is a dull pain. It felt like skin had been rubbed away during intercourse. Now it feels like an ingrown hair.
Is it the same size as when you noticed it?
About the same size yes.
Hard or soft?
Hard, like a pimple?... not rock hard.
Okay, then this may be a pimple, or it may be inflammation in a sebaceous gland
... Well no head has come to like a pimple. I have been applying triple antibiotic ointment on it for the past 3 days. Have been trying a warm wash cloth for the past 2 days as well as the antibiotic ointment.
I was also hoping the antibiotic course the dentist had me on would have helped out as well. :/
A pimple does not always come to a head, and antibiotics do not treat pimples
Oh.... OK. I was going to attempt to use a stearlised needle to pop it. However I figured this would be a better route. Any suggestions for me Doc?
I think you should consider applying cortisone cream to help until it resolves
OK. I am more then willing to try that. I don't want to be impatient, but how long could this take to resolve its self?
It may take up to 4 weeks
OK. Should I stay away from sexual activities? Any and all or?
And how long before I should see improvement?
If you have sex you may want to use protection to keep it from getting infected
It should improve within 7-10 days
OK.... Thanks Doc, any brand of cream you would recommend?
Cortisone cream any type will do
