Precisely on rectus abdom attaches to Pubic crest, area is swollen and tender area. Did it with deep ext stretch. Have I given myself an Ingui Hernia?

Precisely on rectus abdom attaches to Pubic crest, area is swollen and tender area. Did it with deep ext stretch. Have I given myself an Ingui Hernia?

Probably not: Sounds as if you may have injured the insertion of the rectus muscle, which is pubic symphysis, similar to a muscle strain. It would be unusual for you to have subsequently created a hernia. If indeed you did, it would be a direct hernia, which is the floor of the inguinal canal. Put a heating pad on it, rest it, wait a couple of weeks and if it is still bothering you, see your MD ...Read more

I have this pimple in. The pubic area and I popped it a few days ago i.also just shaved all my hair off there and now its sore and a little swollen?

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

This could be: Several things, including in ingrown hair or an infected hair follicle, and perhaps even an abscess, especially if the area of swelling is red, painful and warm to touch. Even if you're sexually active, this doesn't necessarily mean it's an STD. You should see your doctor (Primary or GYN) to be examined before it gets any worse. ...Read more

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.

Due to it's size, regardless, it would be prudent to have it evaluated forthwith. ...Read more

Caution>possibleMRSA: You are describing an abscess due to a bacterial infection of the skin. Some times these can resolve on their own by applying warm compresses which facilitate spontaneous drainage of the pus and healing. *BUT nowadays MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus) is a frequent cause of skin abscesses and can go very deep thru your skin or beyond. So IF not improving or getting worse MUST see Dr. Asap! ...Read more

I get pubic hair stuck under hood of clitoris. Painful and my clitoris is swollen. What can I do now at home and in the future to avoid this?

Should not be stuck: It should not be true that pubic hair is stuck there and causing clitoral swelling. It seems more likely to be as a gynecologist that something else may be going on. I recommended seeing an Obgyn for an exam to confirm that all is normal. ...Read more
