  • Sounds like a skin cyst. I would go to the dr to have it checked just in case. I know I freak out when I get anything out of the ordinary down there and then it turns out to be a small cyst or an ingrown hair!

  • It is probably an infected hair follicle. You can try and pop it with a clean sharp needle so the pressure it taken off it and the pain will go away. OR you can go to your Dr and let them look at it, and they will probably do the same thing, unless they think it is something else.

  • I got one when I was pregnant, and I wigged out...my husband and I had only been with each other! It ended up being a sevaceous (sp?) cyst, and my doc said it would keep coming back. It burst open two weeks after I delivered and hurt like hell, and doc said I should take a bubble bath in Dreft! It actually ended up feeling really good, and the cyst hasn't come back yet!
