I'm sure its just an ingrown hair. I get them all the time after I shave or wax and the hair starts to grow back. Sometimes they even have a little white head, but you can put some rubbing alcohol on it to dry it up and the hair should come out soon.

Sounds like ingrow hairs to me also.  Another reason why I stopped shaving in that area.  They sell a cream for that I just don't know the name I'm sorry.

Ringuser>> If you think of the name, please post it since I know that a LOT of women come here with the same problems and it could be very useful info.


It sounds like an ingrown hair to me as well but if it persists, see a Dermatologist for a diagnosis. You can also try HOT compresses to ease the pain and pressure and it can also help to aid in draining it too. Don't be surprised if it comes back and recurs. They are little boogers that haunt you sometimes. You can also put Neosporin on it (externally) to hep the healing process and to get rid of the infection.
