Ingrown Hair Cyst
Ive had an Ingrown hair cyst for about 5 days now, Should i pop it so the pus can come out? It really hurts.
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
I have a bump on my scrotum-painless, looks like a pimple and is maybe a few mm wide. Could it be an ingrown hair, cyst, pimple, or something else?
Probably benign: A Painless pimple may need medical attention if it shows increase in size over a short period of time. You should check it once weekly, note its size to determine if it is getting bigger. If it is, that will be a signal to go see a doctor and have a medical examination. If it does not grow in size, then it can be left alone, yet watched for any change over one year before you can ignore it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Nothing special: Keep the area clean, and watch for signs of enlargement or infection (tired skin, tenderness). If either if these things occur, see your doctor.

Small, not quite pea size hard lump underneath right armpit. Does not hurt, does not form visible bump, no color. Had over a year. Cyst, ingrown hair?
Probably a cyst: Cysts are small, firm bumps under the skin that are filled with keratin. When squeezed, some will produce the keratin which is white, cheesy and sometimes stinky. If it is not causing problems or growing, we tend to leave them alone, but it is important for your doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Sometimes, if it is not clearly a cyst, we can biopsy the spot to be sure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
