  • Probably. Nothing serious though. It's just an infected hair follicle and they aren't always big. I think DD had one on her leg the other day. It was small but got all red around it and eventually burst and bled, but it's better now.

  • I get them under my breasts during the summer when it's so hot. Very painful. Hot water and heat helps them to burst.

  • I've had one. I used a sterile pin and popped it...gross and hurt like hell, but it healed quickly after that.

  • It is really annoying. I might pop it. Well, have DH do it, I can't see it.
