Pimple on Groin area

Hi. Around 4 days ago, I noticed a small white head pimple appeared on my pubic hair. As I did with all pimples, I popped the pimple, and the white from any white head came out. But since then, the pimple changed. It is now sort of a red pimple. I can't pop it. I got a bit worried, and looked around the internet, and a pimple on the groin area usually means either an ingrown hair or tumor. But I couldn't find someone who had a white head like mine to begin with. If it helps, I am 19 and haven't been sexually active yet. If someone could answer me, it would be great!

Thanks!

Hi chris, It may have been an ingrown hair since it was in the hair. I would bathe daily using lots of soap & water & a washcloth to cut down on staph that lives on the skin, keep my hands off it, use a dab of triple antiobiotic cream, keep it dry, wear clean undergarments & watch for signs of further infection such as redness, swelling & any drainage & go to dr if any problem. I hope it resolves for you.
