Infected ingrown and when to see a dr I had an ingrown hair between my pelvic bone and belly button that became swollen and full of puss. It looked like a pimple. I mistakenly squeezed it and tried popping it. Instead I have a knot next to it and I bel
It: It sounds as though your ingrown hair became infected and turned into a boil. Boils usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by staphylococcus aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by mrsa, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria. Next time you develop one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should see your doctor so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat you appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If you ever develop fever, chills, or feel ill with this infection, call your doctor immediately. Also, spreading redness and swelling around the area means the infection is worsening and you may need antibiotics. You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Your doctor may have other suggestions for prevention.See 1 more doctor answer

Inflammation: This is an area of inflammation which may be due to a bacterial or viral infection. Infections in this area of the body are potentially very dangerous and must be diagnosed and treated promptly. In view of the swelling and tenderness, I recommend being examined in the hospital emergency room as soon as possible.
I have a pimple like bump on chest brown hole in middle and swollen white then red. Started small and slowly growing and becoming painful.
Tricky: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person. But, local infections grow with collections of pus and can cause a variety of color changes. They need specfic treament often with minor surgery.See 2 more doctor answers

I tried to pop a pimple about my lip and now my lip is hard and swollen what can I do to make my lip not swollen and better?
Probably ice: I say probably because e I don't know the time frame. If you popped the pimple a few days ago now have a hard swollen lip I would worry about infections and start warm soaks and see a doctor. If this is recent and you traumatized the lip then ice will reduce swelling. See a doctor if any pus, throbbing, tenderness fever etc

See answer below: Your description is consistent with "Cellulitis" which occurs when bacteria, most commonly streptococcus and staphylococcus, enter through a crack or break in your skin. This is potentially a serious infection especially if affects the tissues underneath your skin or gets into your bloodstream. Usually requires antibiotics and recommend immediate evaluation by an MD or ER.See 1 more doctor answer
What I assume is a large pimple has swollen the entire side of my face I tried to pop it 4 days but nothing came out now I can see my cheek in my line of vision and keep biting my cheek from swelling?
Stop playing!: You likely have a facial cellulitis from spreading the initial follicular infection by attempting to "pop" your pimple. Seek immediate attention from your pcp or urgent care source to be placed on antibiotics today! Follow up in 7-10 days is a must to avoid more serious complications. There is always a potential need for an incision ; drainage procedure, which requires a face to face encounter!See 1 more doctor answer
The left side of my vagina lips is swollen and hurts. There is a bump. It's very hard and I can't necessarily "pop" the bump. It's not a pimple.?
Vaginal bump: Bumps on the vaginal lips are common complaints and usually are nothing to worry about. These include Bartholin cysts which occur on the lower part of the lips outside of the vagina, Skene's duct cysts which occur on either side of the urethra, sebaceous cyst, clogged sweat glands, genital herpes, human papilloma virus, genital warts. You should have it checked out by your doctor.

Seek evaluation: It sound like your pimple has evolved into a more severe infection. Please seek help from your primary physician or urgent care. You might start with hot compresses in the area while you get the medical attention, but most probably you will need drainage of the area and antibiotics.
