Customer Question
I have a tiny...

I have a tiny black spot (raised) in my pubic area. Does not hurt but feels like a pimple. What could it be from and how do I get rid of it?

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

There's no pain. I found it when I was washing. Not itchy either.

Sorry for delay in reply.

Well, this can occur due to- blocked glands or hair follicles.

These can develop sebaceous material which actually oxidizes in the presence of air and turns black.

In some cases, the glands can become inflamed and you develop a small pustule.

As there is no pain/ itching and has not increased in size, So I would not be worried.

You can leave it alone. This is harmless in nature.

As such, no treatment is required. Please be relaxed and stop worrying.

Hope this helped

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.
