I found a painful red lump with black head in my armpit. Squezzed it and it discharged hard white stuff. What should I do?

Sounds like a cyst: This sounds like a sebaceous or epidermal inclusion cyst. They are common. The biggest problem with them is they can become infected. It is likely to recurr after squeezing and usually needs excision to get rid of it. Consult your doctor, dermatologist or plastic surgeon to be sure. ...Read more

My daughter is 12 she has pubic hair in her private area no underarm hair no discharge but she has had breast buds for a really long time?

Your question is?: I assume your question has to do with when to expect menses, as this is the most common one I get. Most girls will start 2-2.5 years after breast buds. A little light discharge in the months before starting is common. ...Read more

Hi, : Hi, leukorrhea is cloudy, white or slightly yellow vaginal discharge that is normal in females that have undergone puberty. The thickness or amounts can change at different times (like when a female ovulates or gets pregnant). There can be more if estrogen is out of balance (which can happen when a girl is just starting to get periods). It sounds like your discharge has a mild odor after you have it for a while and is very light yellow. If you have darker colored discharge, it is thick (like cottage cheese) and it has a bad odor, that can be signs of an infection, especially if there are symptoms like vaginal redness, burning, itchiness or pain with urination. ...Read more

This is going to sound weird but how come the hair on both my armpits is totally gone, I didn't shave them and noone else did either so how come?

This is going to sound weird but how come the hair on both my armpits is totally gone, I didn't shave them and noone else did either so how come?

Hair loss: If hair loss is confined to the axillae only, I would suspect that substances like deodorants, other irritants or prior inflammation, friction, or infections such as yeast are possible causes. It may also simply be a genetic predisposition to eventually lose hair in that region of the body. If you have further concerns about hair issues, a dermatologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you ...Read more

Will shaving my armpit hair reduce body odor?

It might: Armpit hairs can slow down sweat evaporation and trap oils and smells. But even if you shave closely, if you don't keep the armpit clean, you can have an odor. Some people also need a deodorant or antiperspirant to keep odors down. I personally think some odor is natural and that we tend to get overly concerned here in the usa. ...Read more

I'm a guy shy about my armpit hair, is that weird?

I'm a guy shy about my armpit hair, is that weird?

Personal choice: Come to think of it, I don't believe that I've ever seen anyone's armpit hair in my office. Many people in the U.S. Tend to keep their armpit hair hidden from public view much of the time. I believe that it's up to the individual whether to reveal armpit hair or not. I think it's perfectly ok to reveal it in the right situation and if a person is comfortable with it. It's up to you. ...Read more
