See the Dr.: Best to se the Dr. Sounds like you re getting a chronic folliculitis, which could be caused by shaving.

Red itchy hard painful bump on calf. Possibly ingrown hair. Pulled tiny sharp hair out, hurt worse. Applied bag balm. Bump smaller now, but I limp.?

Red itchy hard painful bump on calf. Possibly ingrown hair. Pulled tiny sharp hair out, hurt worse. Applied bag balm. Bump smaller now, but I limp.?

Doctor can check: A bump from an ingrown hair on the lower leg should not cause an amount of pain that would make a person limp. There could be something more serious there, and one's primary care doctor can examine the area to see what is going on. One possibility is a skin cyst (epidermal inclusion cyst) that has gotten inflamed or infected... those usually need to be opened or removed. ...Read more

There is black bumps on my legs and when I try to pick at it with like a tweezer there's ingrown hair in it what should I do about it?

QUIT PICKING!: I assume you shave. Depending on your type of skin and susceptibility to inflammation, you move likely have folliculitis from ingrown hair. Options are not shaving (doubt you'll like that one), waxing can decrease folliculitis, or laser hair removal. Bummer being a female in a lookism society, huh? ...Read more

Options: Only shave after taking a bath or shower so that your skin is hydrated. Liberally apply a high quality shaving gel, and only shave in the direction of hair growth (not against). Use a high quality multi blade razor, and replace it frequently. If this does not eliminate the problem see your dermatologist for additional prescription options. ...Read more

Why is it that my legs get ingrown hair bumps?

Do you shave?: If you shave, you may be more prone to it. You may also have a skin infection, like folliculitis. Or if the bumps are large and painful and red, you may have MRSA and if they are large enough, the bumps may need lanced, or you may need antibiotics. You should have them looked at. In addition, if you smoke or are diabetic or have other chronic illnesses, you should definitely have it checked. ...Read more

Possibilites: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health and
Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person.
Bug bite, local trauma, multiple ones of them would mean something totally different, in theory, local infection possibly... probably other possiblities

I've had a brown pimple bump on inner thigh for a while, I get waxed and been told it was ingrown hair. I found his morning redness and swelling.

Skin infection: Probably so if like a red hot boil, hair follicle infection[folliculitis], use warm wet washcloths for 5-10 min. 3-6x/day till comes to a head break open with needle or go to urgent care or dr. For lancing and culture, could be mrsa infection which usually is with any pus but if not getting better will need antibiotics, wash/scrub well daily with soap/water/washclioth ...Read more

I have a small sore, which looks like an infected ingrown hair about 2 inches above my penis which has a larger bump under it very sore, hurts to bend?

Folliculitis: Sounds like it could indeed be an 'ingrown' hair or a localized folliculitis. Important other information could be obtained with further questioning - esp. Regarding any recent sexual activity, as STDs would also be on the list if you've had sex with any new partner (s). Hopefully it has resolved by now - but if not, I would apply bacitracin.

Get an exam: There isn't a way to know what this is without doing an exam. A likely cause is a Bartholin gland cyst. The Bartholin gland is in this area and swell and form a hard nodule. Sometimes these get large and painful and have to be drained. Best wishes! ...Read more

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?

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? ...Read more

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 more
