  • Can just be a pimple, I've had them every so often. Doctor told me it's my body's way of getting impurities out. My aunt gets them on her breasts and I have even gotten them there once in a while too.

  • sounds like an infected hair I get them from time to time takes a bit for the swelling to down Could be something else but as long as its not on the inside that what it sounds like to me.

  • could be a cyst. try putting a hot wash cloth on it and then see what happens it seems like its coming to a head so to speak thats probably what it is. they are fairly common in that area so don't be too embarrassed my dh gets him his manly areas all the time

  • Pimple or ingrown hair or possible both. It can take 10 days or more for bump to go away.

  • Could be an ingrown hair.. But popping pimples anywhere is never a good idea, the impurities contained inside can be released back into the blood stream and cause infections if you damage the skin barrier underneath the pimple..

  • Sounds like it could have been an ingrown hair or a infected hair follicle. Both can cause things that resemble pimples and they can last for a bit.
