Reoccurring cyst on right side above pubic hairline on male can sometimes get smelly pus out of it
This sounds like a bacterial infection. It could have started with an infected hair follicle. Staphylococcus aureus is often the cause. You can place warm compresses on the cyst for 20 to 30 minutes at a time. Replace the compress as it cools. This can be done every few hours. Since this is a recurrent problem, recommend that you see your regular doctor or a dermatologist to determine the cause. Don't handle, lance or squeeze it as that can cause the infection to spread. If you get redness, swelling and warmth in the surrounding skin - it could be a sign of cellulitis. Take care. ...Read more

Stop shaving: Like many young people today, I'm guessing you shave your pubic area. This sounds like typical folliculitis due to shaving. It can be a particular problem in the pubic area (more than the face) because of greater bacterial colonization in that part of the body, and because curly hair is more likely to ingrow after shaving. If hair removal is important to you, consider a non-shaving method. ...Read more
