I would recommend that avoiding shaving skin would be a good idea. Applying local antibiotic cream such as Bacitracin may help. If they do continue to enlarge, I would recommend seeing your provider. ...Read more

See a Dermatologist: How long has this been present? Stop trying to pop what seems to be a large hair follicle cyst. A dermatologist will give you an answer. Cysts are benign, not cancerous and usually easily removed as an office procedure. Because of the position of the growth the recovery would likely be two weeks without sex. Do your self a favor get medical advice and you'll sleep better. ...Read more

Pop Goes the Weasel!: Yeah. Makes sense to me. You popped it and now it's infected. Don't go trying to pop it again.I was going to say "unless you know what you're doing,"but we know the answer to that. Leave it alone, keep it clean, maybe apply warm compresses. If that doesn't help, or it gets bigger and more painful, go get it looked at by a doctor. It may need "popping" the right way (called "incision and drainage") ...Read more
