  • It could be an infected gland. See your doctor to be sure it isn't something more serious.

  • Lymph node. Probably nothing. An illness you are fighting off or irritation from shaving. If it does go down in another week or so, make an appointment with your doc. :)

  • Try hot compresses on it. I used to get them bc of infected hair follicles. I changed my deodorant and started using a anti bacterial body wash. I haven't got one in a long time. If you can go to the dr do but if you can't those things will help out if its not serious :)

  • It could be a lymph node, an infected hair follicle, or swollen gland. I have had these a few times before, and they usually go away after about a week. If it doesn't, make an appointment with your doctor. I wouldn't be too worried at this point.
