Cyst: Assuming the bump is painful, it is likely a cyst which is a fluid filled bump below the skin. It could also be an early abcess, which is an infected collection of pus below the skin, like a pimple but more painful and larger. Either can be a consequence of shaving in the genital region. Don't squeeze or pop it! i recommend seeing your doctor asap to see if it needs to be drained. ...Read more

Warm compresses: Probably a soft tissue infection. Young guys get these because bacteria are able to invade beard hairs. Put warm compresses on it. If it seems to be a deep infection interfering with breathing (and you will know) or you develop a fever, get seen. If it is not resolving within a week get with your physician. ...Read more

I have a small red bump on the side of my face and it looks like a pimple. It doesn't hurt or itch. I have acne (15 yrs old), but that bump won't leav?

Consider other dx: Sometimes there are skin conditions that co-exist with acne. For example, a condition known as pyogenic granuloma may appear at the site of an acne scar or blemish. This is handled differently than acne and must be diagnosed by the dermatologist. I suggest you don't pick or squeeze this bump and make an appointment with your PMD who may refer you to the dermatologist. ...Read more

Canker sore: It's a canker sore, or an aphthous ulcer. I get them too, and they are annoying. The immune system itself causes them, sometimes in times of stress, sometimes in response to certain viruses, or sometimes "just 'cuz". Aside from a pain reliever if they are bad, there isn't much you can do, and they go away without help in about 1-2 weeks. Certain foods like citrus are irritating. ...Read more

Fomentation: Warm compress may help in maturing the bump that appears to be a pimple. Do not try to pop it as that makes for a bigger scar.

Probably Acne "Cyst": Arleen, This is probably an acne cyst, which is a ruptured, painful bump where an oil gland ruptured below the skin. The body walls this off and makes a filled cavity called a cyst. Often this is serious and can scar, so you should see a dermatologist for help. Possibly, an injection of the cyst with a dilute cortisone would help. ...Read more

Baby acne, contact: Without knowing more about the age of your baby and exactly how the rash looks, is difficult to say for sure. If baby under 3 months old, is likely it is "baby acne", a normal newborn condition where the changes in hormone levels in the newborn cause the glands to secrete and cause pimples.
