I have a sebaceous cyst on mons pubis near labia mayora. Yellow bloody draining is occurring on its own. Should I let it drain on its own? what to do?

Cyst: Yes. Continue to let it drain on it's own. It is best to place warm compresses on the area for 20 minutes at a time, at least 3-4 times per day, which will encourage the drainage. If it spreads, worsens, gets red or hot, or if you get a fever, you should see a doctor, as then you may need help to get it to drain. Best wishes. ...Read more

Nothing special: Keep the area clean, and watch for signs of enlargement or infection (tired skin, tenderness). If either if these things occur, see your doctor.

2 different issues: A Bartholin’s cyst does not require any treatment until it becomes infected. People can live with them for years and years. The mons cyst needs a diagnosis. An Obgyn needs to see it to determine what it is and what might be causing it before we can offer any suggestions. If the mons cyst if visible clearly then consider a virtual visit for a preliminary analysis ...Read more

Antibiotic ointment: Wash the area clean with soap and water. Apply an over the counter antibiotic cream/ointment, like neopsorin, to the raw area. Do not try to squeeze it any more. Depending on sexual practices, you may wish to get tested for sexually transmitted diseases.
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. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless.

I have a cyst on my Mons pubis. It comes and go away on it's on. It usually pops by itself, but when it does blood and a white substance comes out.

Cyst/genital area: The genital areas in both male and female are invested with small glands which produce oily material, and also sweat glands. The canals which allow sweat or oily material to be produced occasionally get blocked, and the backup of fluid causes a cyst. These cysts are harmless but may become infected, in which case, consult a physician. ...Read more

Why does my friend get pimples (they sort of resemble cystic acne) on her mons pubis? She gets cystic acne on her face too. She isn't sexually active.

Why does my friend get pimples (they sort of resemble cystic acne) on her mons pubis? She gets cystic acne on her face too. She isn't sexually active.

Don't ask why: Acne needs to be managed. Nobody ever realy figures out why one person gets is and another doesn't. A good anti-bacterial wash (we used to use PhisoHex) can help prevent infected hairs in the pubic area. Cystic acne is extremely serious and usually requires isotretinoin. She needs to use benzoyl peroxide and get with her physician as she'll also need prescription Rx. Thanks for asking for her ...Read more

My vagina is very skinny and the mons pubis doesn't have a buff,what is the cause of that?

Buff?: I am sorry, but I don't understand the question. I would suggest that there is great variety in the outward appearance of anatomy and that what you are concerned about is likely just how you are "made"; however, without knowing what a "buff" is I can't say for sure. ...Read more

Will it hurt to get a biopsy for a mole near mons pubis? Will the anesthesia hurt? I'm scared.

Biopsy: Topical anesthesia applied prior to injecting the local anesthetic will minimize the discomfort of the "needle stick". If topical anesthesia is not available, the local injection and infiltration of anesthetic causes some initial mild burning/stinging which lasts a few seconds and then the skin becomes numb where anesthetic was injected. No need to be scared at all, it is a fairly simple& painless ...Read more
