INgrown Hair?

Hi, I have had Gential (genital) warts before over 5 years ago, got treated never had a problem ever since, Never spread it or anything.. Anyways I shaved yesterday down there... theres a bump, not really skin taggish like gentail warts are.. its not really red kinda looks like a white head its on the edge of my lip I dont know if this is an ingrown hair or skin tag or maybe I just cut myself?? Not sure.. Im due for a pap soon anways but is there anything I can do to make it go away if its a ingrown hair?? its a bit tender too I noticed it while I was in the shower washing myself its really small maybe half the size of a pea.. should I just wait it out?? Im making an appiontment in a few weeks for a pap.. I also get skin tags often too alot so maybe thats it?? just get back to me thank

You need to go and have this examined either today or tomorrow. Also ask for a herpes blood test and a lesion culture of it for herpes too.  I wouldn't wait this out - take care of it now to get the best answers.

If it lasted a day, its not herpes.  Ask your doctor about it though.
