View Full Version : Ingrown Hair/Boil popped beneath skin?

I had a sore spot in the crook of my hip/leg, and I occasionally get ingrown hairs in the area, so I tried to pop it (there wasn't a head; dumb of me, I know). There was a spot just beneath the skin that was smaller than a pea, and I think it might have popped, but there was only a tiny amount of blood above the surface, so if it popped, it was mostly under the skin. Should I be too worried (go to the ER) or just watch cautiously? What should I watch for?
