a while back i thought i had a large ingrown hair on my bikini line. i popped it but it then turned into what sort of looked like a wart although it wasnt. it was basically just a raised bit of skin slightly tubular in shape and sort of looked like a calcium deposit. i didnt think much of it since it didnt change for a year. however, just this morning i noticed that it had swollen and i squeezed it and puss came out. it is red and larger and i am not sure what to do or what it is.
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
This could have been a sebaceous cyst which got infected. It could also have been a lipoma or actually a genital wart. At times hair follicle (root) infections remain under control for long and then flare up. It is difficult to comment what it is on net. Please ask a doctor to take a look at it. Take care!
