I have what I...

I have what I think is an ingrown hair in the pubic area and there is a 2inch lump underneath, very painful

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?

2 days...hard

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

No...I seem to have a fever but I can't check right now...at work. Hot and clamy

The hard knot under the skin is about 2 inches across and I have a small boil like on the surface

OK

This isn't herpes if that was your concern

But you've obviously got a boil there

You can try hot packs to see if it will come to a head and drain but if it doesn't in another day you need to see your doctor to get it drained and to get a course of antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
