So yes, your body will 'habituate' and heal well if you give it time and progress intelligently with your activities. ...Read more

Get checked.: You may have a cyst there that is now infected. Get checked Avoid harsh soaps and fragrances in skin care and laundry products and tight clothes in that area, too.
