  • If it is a hair..to go away you have to get the hair out. If it's a labial cyst..not much.

  • ee idk, i shave "upwards" too, otherwise you dont get a close enough shave!
    anyway, i think its best to apply warm compresses, but for me its always just worked best to just leave it alone because it should go away soon..
    hope it helps!

  • find a pair of tweezers, break the pocket to let out any possible pus that may be there and find the hair with your tweezers then pluck it. I have had to find a magnifying glass to find them sometimes. After that, put some neosporin on it and that's it. It's not really complicated but if it gets worse and you can't find the hair, you may need to see your doctor. Sometimes, that's the only way to get rid of them once they get really bad. Hope this helps! BTW, what is your definition of medium sized? what is something you would compare it too?

  • For future refrence when it comes to keeping that from happening use deoderant down there after u shave just a lil it acts just like it does in your under arms and keeps the arean from becoming irritated when the hair grows back in. Just a lil deoderant though don't go crazy! LOL I learned this trick froma nude dancer a long time ago! TMI but it works
