okay
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 1 year ago

It sounds like it could be an ingrown hair.

Hear the clitoris you don't have any structures that could cause an abscess and it's rare to have a sebaceous cyst or gland there.

How large would you say it is?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i thought that too but its by the area where hair doesnt really grow, its usually light blond hairs. not large, small. but i can feel this huge lump/hair under its weird.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
yeah thats why i didnt thinkn it was an ingrown hair because it feels to thick for that area
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 1 year ago

The only other possibility is an epidermoid cyst, those are hard, about 0.5" across and painful if squeezed.

They aren't dangerous but bothersome and take some time to go away.

If you feel comfortable uploading a picture I can give you more information.

OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 1 year ago

I see it now, just a moment.

So, that's not an ingrown hair, agree with you.

That's an epidermoid cyst. Very benign.

Take a look at the smaller white bumps in the picture (thanks for taking such a clear image, usually they are very blurry) and you will see that those are actually non-functional hair follicles (epidermoid follicles). This larger bump has just a lot of sebum in it, think of it as a large black head under the skin.

okay so i can pop it? if so how because ive been trying so hard and its starting to annoying me. also, is that why i feel a hard "hair" under the bump? its a blackhead?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 1 year ago

No please don't try to pop it, it will get much larger and more angry looking.

Warm compresses and avoiding friction, that's the way to manage it.

There should be no hair there, you might be feeling something there but that is likely the sebum that has formed a sack.

Give it time and it will go away perfectly fine on its own.

OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 1 year ago

It can take up to 3 months for this to go away so don't despair.

The swelling will usually be much less even after 1-2 weeks though.
