U may try a local antibiotic like neosporin ointment 3 times a day or if the pain, redness &/or swelling increases have ur self examined by ur physician for an oral antibiotic if required. ...Read more

I shaved my mons pubis earlier today & now I have a really painful bump down there. I used to always get boils cause my skin was so sensitive.

I shaved my mons pubis earlier today & now I have a really painful bump down there. I used to always get boils cause my skin was so sensitive.

Careful: Make sure you are using a quality razor and moisturizing shaving gel. Shaving always causes small skin openings that can become infected or the hair can become ingrown as it grows back. Moisturize everyday with good eczema cream and use light dose 1% hydrocortisone if irritated. Moist heat for now and some neosporin. See MD if worsens - don't PICK.

There is a bump on my mons pubis and has happened before. It is slightly darker than my skin and hurts with a little poke or slight rub. What should I?

Time to go...: A small recurrent tender spot might be an oil gland that's starting to get infected, or even the beginnings of something worse.
Probably the safest thing is to consult a dermatology practitioner.
Its also generally safe to kill off local skin cells etc by freezing...they sell kits to do this over the counter.
Or you could just watch and wait. And see your PCP if it continues. ...Read more
