Folliculitis?: Sorry to hear about the breakouts. You may have acne on your neck, or you may have a folliculitis, (infection of the hair follicles) that requires some antibiotics. You should see your family doctor to confirm the diagnosis, and see if you need treatment or to see a dermatologist. You can try to apply warm compresses to the bumps for now to encourage them to drain and heal. ...Read more

I have a growth or lump on right side just above Adams apple. I thought it was an ingrown hair, but it hasn't gone away. No pain. Thyroid nodules?

Ear pain but urgent care said no infection, ingrown hair, or swelling. My throat looked norm as well. Hurts in ear when I swallow or suck a straw.

You may also be having eustachian tube dysfunction, which is when these tubes, which connect the back of your throat to your middle ear, are not draining fluid or equalizing pressure properly. Take some ibuprofen or acetaminophen for the weekend and see the dentist and your own doctor when they are available. ...Read more

I have sore on back of scalp that I think started as ingrown hair. I picked at it and now its swollen an very sore. What can help it. Thanks?

Warm soaks: Apply warm-water soaks 2-3 times a day, and it should resolve if you don't pick at it any more. If it doesn't, you'll have to see your doctor or a dermatologist to have it drained, and if necessary, get a prescription for an antibiotic. And let that be a lesson! As I tell my patients all the time, your skin is not on strike, you don't have to pick it. (get it? :-)). ...Read more

I keep on getting ingrown hair follicles that turn into red, sensitive cysts in pubic region, they go down but swell back up. How do I stop this?

I keep on getting ingrown hair follicles that turn into red, sensitive cysts in pubic region, they go down but swell back up. How do I stop this?

Stop shaving: Like many young people today, I'm guessing you shave your pubic area. This sounds like typical folliculitis due to shaving. It can be a particular problem in the pubic area (more than the face) because of greater bacterial colonization in that part of the body, and because curly hair is more likely to ingrow after shaving. If hair removal is important to you, consider a non-shaving method. ...Read more
