Why does my friend get pimples (they sort of resemble cystic acne) on her mons pubis? She gets cystic acne on her face too. She isn't sexually active.

Why does my friend get pimples (they sort of resemble cystic acne) on her mons pubis? She gets cystic acne on her face too. She isn't sexually active.

Don't ask why: Acne needs to be managed. Nobody ever realy figures out why one person gets is and another doesn't. A good anti-bacterial wash (we used to use PhisoHex) can help prevent infected hairs in the pubic area. Cystic acne is extremely serious and usually requires isotretinoin. She needs to use benzoyl peroxide and get with her physician as she'll also need prescription Rx. Thanks for asking for her ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor if the lesions are not healing. The bumps may be folliculitis, infection of hair follicles, that can occur without ingrown hair. ...Read more

Ingrown hair: Ingrown hairs are common in the pubic area, created by shaving or the friction from underwear. They can appear as pimple like bumps. Applying warm compresses and washing twice daily with a warm soapy washcloth should help the site drain and heal faster. See your doctor if symptoms do not improve with these measures. ...Read more

I have this sore on my mons pubis it started out as a pimple but now it's not and it started to bleed and it hurts and is kind of purple red colored?

Infection spreading: The pimple or small boil having ruptured has allowed the ingress of skin bacteria into the area and the fact that pain is increasing suggests that local infection is spreading. 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

Hair root infection: This site can give rise to inflammation at the base of the hairs in the area. It is likely an infected follicle root. A warm moist heat compress may draw it out so it will drain & heal. If it seems to spread, have it looked at as prescribed meds can speed the healing. ...Read more

I have a single underskin pimple under mons pubis area on labia majora area. I have no STDs been tested. How should I treat this or doctor visit?

A few ideas: If you have an isolated infection (acne) in this area you can do a few things. 1) leave it alone, chances are within a few days/week it will go away; 2) if you feel the need (i don't recommend) you can pop it if it has a white head, and clean area throughly with dilute mixture of hydrogen peroxide. I don't think you need a doctor visit unless looks liek something other than acne. ...Read more

I have foliculitus and get abscesses in my vaginal area now have two black spot like bumps on my Mons pubis are these scars or should I be worried?

I have foliculitus and get abscesses in my vaginal area now have two black spot like bumps on my Mons pubis are these scars or should I be worried?

Don't worry.: Hi Emalou,

Folliculitis is very common where there are large sweat glands and course hair like under the arms and in the groin area. Bacteria get down in the follicles and begin to grow forming small abscesses. They often are noticed in various stages of healing. I believe that this is what you are seeing. Continue to treat the infection with topical antibiotics or antibiotics by mouth. ...Read more

If I got bumps in my mons pubis area and the part of my underwear that touched those bumps began to touch my stomach, will I get bumps on my stomach?

If I got bumps in my mons pubis area and the part of my underwear that touched those bumps began to touch my stomach, will I get bumps on my stomach?

That all depends: On what the cause of the bumps are. Some "bumps" can be from shaving - causing folliculitis and that is not likely to spread by touching it. If the bumps are due to a virus (hpv or molluscum) or bacterial infection, then it is "possible" it could spread, especially if you are scratching the skin on your stomach. See your Dr to determine the cause, then a proper treatment can be discussed. ...Read more

Hello I have itchy tiny red bumps on my mons pubis that recently happened, how can I reduce it or make it go away?

Rash: Could be inflammation of the hair follicles. This can happen from any method of hair removal. If you shave, be sure to use a clean, sharp blade. If you use other hair removal products, you may be having an allergic reaction, so don't use them again. Try soaking the skin 20 min. Avoid any products on the area. Go without undies at night. If painful blisters see a doctor to check for herpes. ...Read more
