Lump under skin by vagina

Feb 11, 2013 - 1 comments

A few days ago while I was in the shower I noticed this bump on my bikini line. I decided to try to pop it and eventually it did, but now I look at it and there is a uncomfortable hard lump underneath my skin where the bump originally was. I'm not sure what it is could it be a ingrown hair, cyst, growth or something worse?

Most likely an ingrown hair... happens to all of us. When you popped it did blood come out or puss? That hard bump will disappear eventually, I promise.. It's either really inflamed or something is lodged deep inside your pore. So there is absolutely nothing to worry about, it's completely normal.
Did you pop all of it out? Cause if not continue popping it.
I use to always worry about this too.. I would always think I had an std or something (even though I'm not sexually active) and one day I asked my mom and she told me how she gets them too..
They are completely normal as long as you have pores, and hair and they can occur anywhere especially armpits. They usually occur when you are not consistent with showering or shaving.. and sometimes when you do shave a razor bump will turn into one of those.
Just be sure to stay extra clean around the area, maybe put some peroxide on it (without getting it inside of your genitalia cause that would sting) and be sure to just leave it alone and give it some time.. If it still hasn't gone away after a couple days or so then try popping it again to get out whatever is left.

I remember one time It took almost a month for one to disappear and when it finally came out it was a big glob of dead skin with a hair in it. I know that sounds disgusting lol but it just happens.. even the best of hygiene cant stop an ingrown hair.
Hope this helped.
