ok so basically i have a small little pimple / bump under my skin in my pubic area
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I'm male 21
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 7 months ago

This is likely to be Folliculitis.

You may apply Neosporin cream.

If there is a pain, you may take acetaminophen (paracetamol) or Ibuprofen.

Was this information helpful to you? I would be glad to answer any further questions.

thing is i had the exact same issue last year however the lump was fairly big and slowly went away... then weeks later it became quite hard so i popped it and white puss came out... now a year later a similar bump has returned in roughly the same place.... also i don't shave anymore in fear that it makes ingrown hairs worse etc
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
its just one bump
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 7 months ago

This may be self limiting, depending on the severity of infection (virulence of organisms).

This may need antibiotic.

This may rarely need tiny nick (surgical drainage).

could this be an ingrown hair ?

Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 7 months ago

This is folliculitis.

A positive rating would be highly appreciated.

Hello. This is Dr. Love.

The other expert has opted out.

It is possible that a single hair follicle could get infected, and it is commonly from an ingrown hair. There are other possible causes, though, such as locations where skin rubs on skin or when there is pressure from clothing.

This will frequently improve with appllication of warm compressses several times per day followed by application of Neosporin.

Is there any further information that would be helpful?

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.
