Question A pimple - DOWN THERE?

I discovered a bump down there maybe a week ago. It's not in the vagina or anything, but outside around that area. I assumed it was a pimple, but it's been a week, and it hasn't gotten worse or better. Is it a pimple, ingrown hair, or something bad? I'm still a virgin, so I highly doubt it's an STD. Or is it? Will it go away? What can I do to help get rid of it faster? Please help! I'm embarassed to go to the doctor =( Thank you!

Thumbs up

i really doubt u have anything to worry about...i get them when i shave and in about 1-2 weeks its gone. those ingrown hairs take sometime to go away. as long as the bump doesnt have puss or looks infected. dont worry about it.

Since you've ruled out STDs I would go with everyone else and say it's an ingrown hair.

I used to get them 'there' when I first began shaving.

To keep this from happening in the future if you shave make sure you are using a new razor, also shave in the shower or bath, and use a moisturizer after.

If it doesn't go away soon, or begins to get worse or painful, see an MD.
