I have a knot on the back right side of my head. First appeared to be like a ingrown hair. Mashed it and clear liquid came out.
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. If it is foul odor then this may be a sebacous cyst. Cysts recur and can become infected. A simple procedure in your doctors office can remove it.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Ingrown hairs: This is a common problem in some races. The most practical way is to let the hair grow long. Then the curled ends can't pierce thru the follicle or back into the skin. Often you need to be on an antibiotic to treat the folliculitis until the hair grows sufficiently. Go see your dermatologist. There are other treatments such as laser available for some people as well.

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.
Reoccurring bump with no head on my lip line. It doesn't hurt but when I pop it a small amount of clear fluid comes out. Ingrown hair or herpes?
It would be very: Unusual for a woman to have an ingrown hair on her lip line. A recurring bump on the lip line sounds more like Herpes Type I, the type that usually affects only the area around the mouth. I don't recommend popping it, It doesn't make it go away sooner and your fingers could be a source of spread to other parts of your body or to someone else. Hope this helps?
