Question: blood filled bump in pubic area! advice please!

 mommy2agirl - Thu Jan 08, 2009 12:25 am

Thank you ahead of time for you help! I have shaved my pubic area for years and I have always gotten a few ingrown hairs nothing bad, I would pop them and they would go away or just go way on there own. The last time a shaved, about 3 weeks ago, I got what seemed like another ingrown hair, rather this time it felt different. I didn’t pop it thinking like the rest it would just go away, but it hasn’t. It’s a small bump but if you squeeze it, it feels bigger underneath and it hurts a little. Its full of blood as well, well today I finally popped it and blood came out of it, and now since I popped it looks like two bumps. I haven’t had any problems like this before & when I had my daughter in 07, I had to have a std test done and it was clear, I was std free! I have slept with the same person (and only person I have been with) twice since then, so I highly doubt it’s a std because it would have shown up my now, since the last time I had sex with the person was july. I don’t have insurance and I wanted to know how I could take care of this without going to the dr.

User avatar Hello,
This is probably an infected hair follicle or sebacious cyst that has become irritated. It will likely heal on its own but you might get relief with warm, moist compresses (wet a washcloth and press it on the area, replacing when it cools with another warm one). In a few days it will probably get well. If it seems the infection is getting worse or you develop a fever, see a doctor.

Best wishes.
