ingrown hair on penis...

I think I have an ingrown hair on the lower part of my penis shaft. I've had it for about 3 weeks now and doesn't seem to be getting any better. It doesn't itch, it only hurts when squeezed (of course), but I can't see the hair thats causing it.
I just started putting acne medication to help prevent infection, but I have no idea what to do to get rid of it! I have no health insurance so I can't see a doctor as it cost $400 just to see him for a couple minutes and would rather leave the doctor to a last resort...

Re: ingrown hair on penis...

Not a big deal. I've had this before. I usually know beforehand that thats what the problem is. If you're unsure I wouldn't reccomend what I say then. It usually just looks like a pimple. I just punture it and inside you should see the hair. Try and grab it with a pair of tweezers and pull it out. Clean up any mess and keep the area clean and you should be fine. Its happened to me a few times.

Re: ingrown hair on penis...

Thank you for the reply, but upon further inspection I noticed that there wasn't any hair to pull out and suspect that it may be a sebaceous cyst...
REally sucks and am not sure what do about this either. I've already had this for about a month and am afraid it might be permanent!

The only really other thing I can suggest is go see a doctor
