I have a swollen lump about the size of a golf ball on the right side of pubic area and I am a man thought it may be an ingrown hair that festerd but now its big painful and very hard.

Hello. : Hello. Can't diagnose the cause of this mass. It could be a massively inflammed lymph node, possibly hydradenitis suprativa, an abcess, an infected cyst. If it is red, warm, has discharge, has swelling in the surrounding area has red streaks - or you have a fever - i would be seen at the er immediately. Due to it's size, regardless, it would be prudent to have it evaluated forthwith. ...Read more

Hmmm.: Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person. Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, but, Small infections like acne or boils are quite common there. Spreading redness implies an infection needing antibiotic but a lot of them heal on their own,. ...Read more

Probable cyst: There are a number of conditions that cause lumps and bumps to appear on the surface of the skin or just below the skin. The most common are skin cysts and epidermoid cysts (aka sebaceous cysts) which is consistent with what you are describing. As long as "lump" is not painful and not changing in size and appearance, would just observe and have your doctor check it at your next routine visit. ...Read more

Skin infection.: Are you shaving this area?This is becoming fashionable and causing more skin infections,which could be dangerous and hard to treat..If it is very small and not too pain Gil ,you may try Bacitracin or Neosprin OTC .If it continues to enlarge and get more painful see a doctor for antibiotic treatment.One problem we see now is something called MERSA ,which needs a health professionals management. ...Read more

I have a lump on my pubic area and it's filled up with pus and blood it's painful to touch. I've popped many times and used Detol to keep it clean ?

I have a lump on my pubic area and it's filled up with pus and blood it's painful to touch. I've popped many times and used Detol to keep it clean ?

Sebaceous cyst?: This is probably a sebaceous cyst that is repeatedly getting infected. Or perhaps an ingrown hair with folliculitis leading to a recurrent abscess (carbuncle, boil). A minor surgical procedure to drain it probably will solve the problem. Stop popping it and see a doctor. ...Read more

My friend went in a steam room to detox and by earily the next morning started complaining of a painful lump in her pubic hair area, could this be from the steam room detox because she was fine before the detox?

My friend went in a steam room to detox and by earily the next morning started complaining of a painful lump in her pubic hair area, could this be from the steam room detox because she was fine before the detox?

Great Q. Tough A.: Ok, so this might sound gross, but places like shower and steam rooms are hot, humid, laden with germs from bare bottoms or damp towels. They are the perfect environment for organisms to grow and thrive. So i would ask about the steam room as well as the health of the person undergoing detox. An exam by a primary care physician or institutional md would be helpful. Extra pain is not a good thing ...Read more

Painful lump under my skin in my leg. No mark r bruse.Its on my tigh and near my pubic area on my right leg what could this be ?

Could be : A lot of things. Hard to say without being able to touch, feel and see it. It could be a swollen lymph node associated with what looks like an infection you are being treated for, it could be a fatty tumor, a clogged follicle under the skin. If it doesn't go away a week or so after you finish the ciprofloxacin, go back and get it checked out, sooner if it hurts. ...Read more
