Hi, I'm a 14 year old girl and I'm scared. Ive done a lot of bad things in my past, and I'm not always safe (sexually ) I shaved the other day and these bumps came up. Some had that little white spot at the tip of them just like a pimple, Some would pop and then just go away. Others bleed then left a scar. They wont go away, there's just more and more, I think its razor burn I shave ALOT. Ive been doing a lot of research and it seems like herpes but doesn't look like it. Last time this happened to me they just ''faded'' away, so i didn't look to much into it. But now I'm scared, really. I wanna go to a doctor and look like a **** , its what everyone looks at me as. What do i do. Can someone give me some kind of information to give me a little bit of an idea of whats going on.
To me it sounds like ingrown hairs. some people are more prone to them. before yio shave you need to clean your razor with rubbing alcohol, and make sure you use some cream or lotion to minimize the irritation.
The reason they maybe scarring sometimes and not others is the level of infection in the follicle.
Ive been feeling pain in my stumic but i figure its just cramps. I havnt seen any discharge latly that usally would be there. Its really kinda freaking me out, it hasnt gone away and its been about a week.
