I was hoping that someone would please help me figure this out.
I'm sure it's not skin cancer, I wasn't sure though which other forum to post this in.
I have a mole, it wasn't always there, I'm 23/F and it appeared a few years ago, it's always been very pale pink color and I noticed a few months ago that it would have a hair, one single ugly hair growing out of it.
This mole is on the inside of my right thigh, it's embarassing enough having one there, and then to have one little hair..
so I will pluck it out.
Last time I went to pluck it out there were 2 hairs- now how does that happen? I was quite disappointed.
But about 2 weeks after I plucked out those 2 hairs it started itching, and it was scabbed over. It's painful, and it also is bright red now and not pink anymore.
How do I know if this is an ingrown hair? I don't see any hair on it at all. Could be ingrown then, right?
I am the classic, don't have insurance, don't have a doctor kind of gal.
Is this worrisome enough to go see a Dr? Wouldn't I have to see a skin specialist?
I know it was only one hair, but it's right by my.. special place- haha, and it makes me feel unattractive- I wish I had just left it alone now.
The pain is just getting worse everyday, even when I'm not moving I can feel it burn.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
