If you have an ingrown hair bump in your groin that is inflamed, it could be the cause. Other causes can include a sexually transmitted disease or even cancer. See a health provider to be sure. ...Read more

Ingrown hairs: If you have ingrown hairs try not to wax, shave or pluck hairs until healed. This can often heal without treatment.

Had cyst on bikini line from an infected ingrown hair. I used Fucidin cream to relieve the pain. Now there's a large ball under skin. Needs draining?

If you can squeeze out the contents os this cyst, GO AHEAD. When you empty it of sebum and pus it will heal better and feel better.If you have significant distress, a DR can drain it for you. Sometimes cortisone is injected into these to shrink them. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Tender bump in the crease behind ear lobe, no head. Cyst or boil? Seems to be just under skin surface.
"Bump" vs "welt": Not sure that I understand what you mean about a 'bump' with a 'welt' over it, unless you mean that the skin over and around the 'bump' has firm texture. If this is the case you should seek medical attention as soon as you can. ...Read more
