Unhappy Blackheads down South


The other night I felt a small semi hard bump on my Mons on the outer side of the lip.I gently squeezed and nothing came out.

Last night after my shower I felt the same small bump.I again gently squeeze and a large sized Blackhead with a bit of dryer Whitehead came out.

This bothers me mainly because Iam a clean individual,even tho majority of Women get bumps.

Obviously I have had several of these and didnt notice because I have these strange looking scars that looks like a Blackhead has been there before but somehow worked its way out or dried up.

The past few mths I have used Ivory Soap when washing because of irritation from Chamomile Body Wash.

I dont think it would help to wash a different way as I scrub and rinse properly.Is there some other type of gentle Soap I can use to combat these bumps?

Re: Blackheads down South

Could they be ingrown hairs verses blackheads? Ingrown hair will sometimes get irritated enough to produce a pimple-like bump.?????? Just a suggestion. I don't know of any soaps that may help. I like Dove soap personally.

Hi Corny,

I dont think it was an Ingrown hair.It might of started out as one and somehow got clogged like you said..

May also be my skin type too.Im bad to get Blemishes on my face.
