  • a really bad and probably infected in grown hair? Try poping it as gross as it sounds..if it does look like a pimple it probably is. Hubby gets these from time to time and ignores them they turn up infected and I have to pop them cause they hurt too bad. The ingrown hair holds the pimple bacteris try to get rid of it. OR go see a doctor. GL

  • This may be a hamengioma, a blood filled blister like thing. They are common and when broken open usually bleed a very long time and once they stop they heal up bigger than the time before. Talk to your doc. My son had one on his elbow and had to have it removed. Good luck.
