Ingrown hairs: It sounds like you may have some ingrown pubic hairs which are causing these bumps. Also if you use a razor that is not clean, infection is possible. Please don't "pop" those bumps, as this exposes you to danger from infection. A warm, clean compress may help. If they get more red or swollen, please see a doctor. ...Read more

Probably infection: A painful lump that fills up with fluid in that area is likely a cyst formed by infection of an oil gland that has become infected, and is now the scene of a struggle between your immune system, and the infection.

In the meantime analgesia like paracetamol and ibuprofen will help but also running the area under hot water and soap as often as it is convenient should help. You should let a doctor take a look at it. ...Read more

Can you get pimples on your penis? And what does it mean when you are sore and feel bruised where your pubic hair is? Will it go away soon?

Can you get pimples on your penis? And what does it mean when you are sore and feel bruised where your pubic hair is? Will it go away soon?

See answer: Many types of "bumps" occur on the penis. If what you are noticing are multiple, small, slightly raised, similar in appearance, white to flesh-colored "bumps" on the penis, these are just prominent hair follicles or sebaceous glands and are normal, especially near base of the penis. If your soreness feels like it is deeper within, likely represents an irritation of your prostate: usually resolves. ...Read more

Constant pain for week about 2 inchs above the pubic hair area on right hand side? Can't feels lumps & not tender when pressing. No other symptoms

Adenopathy: I would guess that that is likely a swollen lymph node. If you have had a chronic infection, like in your armpit, that can cause swelling of lymph nodes elsewhere. It is possible your chronic infection may not be staph or maybe not an infection at all. Consider a biopsy of you arm nodes if this is a chronic problem. ...Read more

What to do if I shaved my pubic hair and now I have large bumps and its extremely itchy! Help?

Ingrown Hair: Often an ingrown hair will go away on its own. If it doesn't go away, an ingrown hair can become infected, permanently darken the skin, or leave behind a scar, especially if you've been scratching or picking at it. If an ingrown hair is bothering you or has become infected, your doctor can make a small cut in your skin with a sterile needle or scalpel to release it or prescribe medicine. ...Read more

I recently trimmed some of my pubic hair, and now that area is very itchy, especially when wearing underwear. Is there any way to stop the itching?

Don't shave closely.: MANSCAPING: If you shave very closely, you increase the itchiness caused by hairs caught beneath the skin surface. If you want a "neat" appearance, try trimming the hair with an electric clipper instead. For itch now, some people get relief from aloe vera gel, hydrocortisone cream, or Gold Bond medicated powder. If itching continues, consider a private virtual visit with a HealthTap doctor. ...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 you are sexually active the lesions may be a sexually transmitted infection like herpes.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

I shaved my pubic hair while fighting a yeast infection and now the entire area is red with white bumps everywhere. What can I do?

Infection, call doc: Superficial irritation and microcopic skin injury from shaving have allowed a bacteria like staph, strep, or other to take hold and cause superficial infection, or maybe yeast itself. Call your doctor, whoever is treating your yeast problem. Depending on severity, she might want to see you, or maybe prescribe an antibiotic ointment or by mouth. In the meantime, try soap and water wash twice a day. ...Read more

How do you stop pubic hair from growing I shave like everytime I see hair down there but when it grow it burns alittle and I don't like hair down there?

How do you stop pubic hair from growing I shave like everytime I see hair down there but when it grow it burns alittle and I don't like hair down there?

Kidding???: Pubic hair is a normal part of being 16. If it ever stops growing, you'll have a bigger problem. I realize that the current fashion is to look virtually pre-pubescent, but if you don't want pubic hair, you'll just have to get rid of it. I recommend trimming, not shaving. Shaving can cause serious bacterial infections. Trim carefully, when you're wide awake, sober and have a steady hand. ...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

Hello, I recently have shaved my bikini area and now have red bumps in between the hairs that I shaved, the do not itch or burn and they are not sore, is there a chance they are an std or are stds more in the vaginal area and not in the pubic area?

Hello, I recently have shaved my bikini area and now have red bumps in between the hairs that I shaved, the do not itch or burn and they are not sore, is there a chance they are an std or are stds more in the vaginal area and not in the pubic area?

STD unlikely: 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. Simple inflammation of the follicles may also be the issue. ...Read more

I recently shaved my pubes for the first time and now 2 hard red lumps have formed at the top of my pubic area. They are sore to touch. What is it?

Local inflammation: There are lot of microbes on our skin that can enter our local skin - when you shave, you are causing some small damage to local skin where bacteria can get in and cause local infection. 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

About 3 months ago I shaved my pubic hair for the 1st time. Few days later I noticed there's a bump and it bleeds it's still there and still bleeding.

See your doctor: It is not normal for a wound to bleed for 3 months. It sounds like you had the bump and nicked it shaving, but there's no good reason for it still to be bleeding 3 months later. Get in to show it to your OB/GYN doc or your primary care physician. ...Read more
