  • They could be ingrown hairs, clogged pores, or boils. Age has nothing to do with it, and there is nothing to be embarrassed about. Doctors see MUCH worse things than that, trust me. Try using a powder after you bathe, like gold bond or baby powder, and see if that helps.

  • It happens sometimes if you shave down there. Or if you sit to much. Make sure you wash and dry well and make sure you have super clean underwear.

  • See a doctor. You don't need to be embarrassed, they have seen it all, and you will find out what it is and how to avoid it. Good luck!
