Hurting In Pubic Area

I am a 15 year old girl and I am having a painful swell thing on my right "flap" thing in my pubic area. It really hurts and it is like a knot or something under the skin. I asked my mom about it and she said to wait and see how it is on Monday. I am so concerned and scared about what it could be. Could you please help?

Hi there. Ouch!  Bad area to have pain!!  Could be as said above, an ingrown hair or could be a cyst.  Try not to worry!!  I am so glad that you spoke to your mom.  I'm sure that if it is still bothering you on Monday, she will take you to the doctor to figure out what it is.  Come back and let us know how you are, okay?  good luck

if you shave sometimes it could be a ingrown hair and its  harmless.  just don't squeeze it or try to pop it. have your doctor lake a look at it and just be patient.
