Big red bumps in pubic hair

I had a large (about the size of a pencil eraser) red bump in my pubic hair about an inch and a half away from my penis, it got started off small and red and got larger and the skin on top of it got thinner and more sore until it burst and bled some. I hoped it would go away after it bled but it shrunk some and turned more of a purple color then puffed back up and bled some again. This time I saw some clear liquid come out (puss I guess). I now have another one forming on the other side of my pubic hair, and it is still in the red bump stage.

I am terrified that this could be some type of STD, even though I have never had sex and have only received oral from one other person.

Can anyone enlighten me on what it might be and what I can do?

Re: Big red bumps in pubic hair

Most likely an ingrown hair. Look at it closely. If you can see the hair, pull it out, if you can do so without butchering yourself. That should prevent the infection from getting as nasty as it did the first time.

An acne spot-treatment may reduce the swelling, and scrubbing the area with a washcloth during your shower may prevent you from developing more in the future.

Re: Big red bumps in pubic hair

I studied over them and even removed all hairs from around the original bump, but I didn't see any hairs that appeared to double back in.

There isn't an STD that these symptoms line up with?

Re: Big red bumps in pubic hair

Not really. If you were getting sores and bumps actually on your organs, that might be a sign of certain STDs.

Your problem sounds like a regular skin infection from normal skin bacteria. Even if you can't see a hair, that could still be what's causing it.

Often, the entire hair is trapped under the skin, and you have to look THROUGH the bump to see it.

Re: Big red bumps in pubic hair

So I pretty much need to keep washing the area really good and wait for it to go away?

Re: Big red bumps in pubic hair

Pretty much, yes. Don't scrub your skin raw, but keep it clean. A hot compress can help kill the infection, too.

Re: Big red bumps in pubic hair

I used a hot compress on the newer bump, and one of the hairs on top of it looked white around the base of it. So I plucked it and squeezed and I got glob of white liquid out. So that must have been it, hopefully the red bump will go away in the next few days.
