I have a hard bump on my perineum. It is oval shaped and feels like a pimple but does not have a white head. it isn't painful unless I touch it or am wiping. Its pretty close to my anus and I'm not sure if its a hemroid or some type of weird pimple. I haven't been shaving or waxing there for a months since I am extremely prone to getting ingrown hairs. It appeared the day after I had sex with my boyfriend. I am worried that it might be some type of std. It doesn't look like or feel like the descriptions of herpes or warts that I have read and seen online. There is no fluid or bumps. I am hoping someone knows or has experienced this.
I have the same. it's a bit worrisome but i've been cleared of all STDs. if it wasn't painful, i'd cut it off myself. If I ask the doctor, i'll let you know what she says. Odd we'd all have the exact same thing? I'm a pretty small person and it seems to me the bump generated after sex, when i had ripped. Now i cannot get it to go away!
I suppose my advice is a little late for you. This could be a carbuncle and is very serious, especially around the perineum area. It cannot be treated by a gynecologist as it is outside their area of expertise.
