How To Remove Spots Due To Hair Bumps
Hi I am 25 years old I started shaving my bikini are and now I have brown spots and ingrown hairs with razor bumps how can I remove them?
Stop shaving...: Stop shaving practice good skin hygiene and skin preparation prior to shaving, buy new razors, clean and store your razors properly (on a dry surface, not in the shower/tub), and schedule an appointment with a Dermatologist for evaluation and consultation. You may have skin that just needs more TLC and possibly developed folliculitis. This is very common and a good Dermatologist will help. ...Read more
Some not most: The dark spots some women get are due to pigmentation in the vulva.

I know that my facial hair was causing me to have acne and bumps. So I got rid of them.After my bumps disappear black spots are left. Why?
May be comedones: Acne is caused by skin pores being plugged by tiny clumps of skin cells (the clump of cells is called a comedone). When there are no bumps or actual pimples and pustules, the acne-prone areas of skin will still have plugged pores. Maybe the black spots are actually the comedones in the skin pores. The best way to tell is to have a primary care doctor look at the spots. ...Read more

I started having hair bumps on my arms and legs two years ago. I exfoliate regulary but it just smothes out leaving dark spots. Ps: I epilate my hair.?
burn hyper pigment: When one uses an exfoliating agent, a chemical is in effect burning away the hair follicles. Skin can become hyper pigmented after this treatment and more so if there is exposure to the sun for 6 months. As a result the patient trades loss of hair for pigmented areas. It would be best to use a sunscreen of spy 15 or greater for six months while doing the exfoliation. ...Read more

I am experiencing itchy pinkish bald spots on my scalp that are very sore and tender, red itchy pimple like bumps on my scalp. I continue to lose hair
Ingrown hair, not particularly sure. The area I usually shave has a spot that has grown a little hard and has a bump. No pain though.
Maybe: Hard yo day without seeing the area, but this sounds like an ingrown hair. Let the area grow out for a little while between shaving to reduce the development of these. This could also be a folliculitis or a small cyst forming, again, hard to say. See you doc or do a video consult here on HealthTap to confirm. ...Read more
I'm 17 no STDs my vagina is discolored due to shaving. I also get hair bumps that leave a dark spot. What could I use to treat this w/o going to dr.
Consider options: Shaving is not always the best way to get rid of hair in the genital area. It causes nicks and cuts, makes you more prone to ingrown hairs and increases your risk of skin infections. You might consider a hair removal cream. Also consider waxing or laser hair removal. As far as dark spots are concerned I wouldn't recommend lightening cream in that area as skin is too delicate. ...Read more
So my genital area is hairy, in the spot where a bump was present and went away, there is no hair there, why?
Loss of pubic hair: Could have been scarring of hair follicles and therefore there is no hair, just like in a burn.

I had a bump on my head 3 weeks ago. I scratched it and peeled the scab. Now I have a bald spot my head. How do I get hair growing back on the spot?
Time and patience.: It sounds as though the hair was traumatically removed with the scab. Since you did not have issues prior the scab, it will simply take time and patience to see the hair regrow. Viviscal is a nice over the counter treatment that may speed up the process of hair regrowth in areas such as yours. If the bald spot starts to enlarge, see a doctor. You may have a condition called alopecia aereata. ...Read more

Meds are available for most complications see your MD. ...Read more

I have a bump on my vagina filled with puss and blood. It resurfaces in the exact same spot every couple of months. Any ideas? Sometimes it hurt in the beginning when it resurfaces.
It is on the outside where pubic hair grows.
This : This is concerning. Please be sure that you have had a doctor take cultures on it. You may have a cyst in that area or a gland that keeps getting infected. You could try always using anti-bacterial soap to prevent it, and if it starts getting infected again immediately place triple antibiotic cream on it (such as bacitracin), but please also have your gynecologist check it as it may need cultures if you have not already done so. If it becomes painful, swollen, red, or you have fever then you would need to be seen immediately. ...Read more

Scalp: This appears to be an irritability/mild inflammation of the scalp nerves, skin or muscle. Check carefully to see any inflammatory changes in the skin. If none, I suspect some irritability of scalp muscles in view of the tenderness. There is a slight indentation of the skull near those regions. Could there be irritability from eye glasses, headphones, brushing or combing? Any new hair dressing? ...Read more

Head Injury: This was a bump from a position of sitting and is unlikely to cause a bad injury. Observe his behavior and follow his usual routine. The red spots are likely the beginnings of a bruise.

I have two brown spots on the head of my penis. I had it sence I was likttle and there is a little whit dot bump on it to, i also masterbate alot.
It is unlikely that the brown spots you are describing have anything to do with frequent masturbation. If they have been present since you were a child, the odds of it being something serious are very slim. The spots may represent common skin moles, or even skin follicles. If you are concerned I suggest you bring this matter to the attention of your doctor.
Good luck. ...Read more
