Cyst: Simple cysts can appear when the fluid of a hair follicle becomes trapped. As the fluid builds up it creates a soft mass. Squeezing it can release the fluid.

No ingrown hair: There is no ingrown hair per se. It's a misconception that people feed on. What you have is inflammation of the hair folicule (sac) that is known as boil or medically as forunculitis. Why you get it is a good question. It indicates that local immune response is impaired. That can be seen in people with diabetes, psoriasis, or other systemic or local causes. Often no cause can be determined. ...Read more

I believe I have a ingrown hair on the lip of my vagina, I did just shave last week, it has a little bit of a white head, and there is only one?
Sounds right: This is not uncommon. Try warm smokes in the bathtub to draw out the infection. If this does not clear it up you will need an antibiotic. In the future make sure you shave in one direction, use plenty of lubricant such as shaking cream and do not use an old razor blade. If that doesn't help then you can try waxing or laser hair removal if you want to continue this grooming style. ...Read more

Hope that helps. Keep the area clean and dry. ...Read more
