I have a small bump (maybe cyst) on my pubic area that will puss sometimes. Should I be worried? What can it be?

Maybe? Infection?: In the pubic area, this is most likely an infected hair follicle or small skin abscess. It could be due to MRSA a very common and painful staph infection seen commonly today. You may have a sebaceous cyst as well. If it were lower down on the lips of the vaginal area, one would be concerned with a bartholin's cyst.

I have one big raised bump in my pubic area and one or two small bumps but not in clusters what are the chances that this is herpes?

I have one big raised bump in my pubic area and one or two small bumps but not in clusters what are the chances that this is herpes?

Doubt herpes, but...: This is not likely to be herpes, which generally does not cause sores in hairy areas, especially with the intitial HSV infection. And herpes rarely causes a "big raised bump" anywhere. I'm betting on pimples or folliculitis. But if you remain concerned, or if herpes seems possible because you are at risk for STD (e.g. new or unsafe partner), see a doctor or clinic. Better safe than sorry! ...Read more

Folliculitis: The skin is getting irritated around the hair follicles. Can be more common if you have curly hair and If you shave the area. If they don't seem infected (visible white pus) there is no danger. You can try soaking the area to allow the hairs to make their way through the skin more easily without causing irritation. Try using a washcloth gently to remove dead skin that could block the follicle. ...Read more

Before you treat it, the most important thing is to get a proper diagnosis, so don't skip that step! :) ...Read more
