abscess

Avatar n tn Find out what it is and get it treated for what it is. That is the best way to get rid of it fast. Unless it is herpes or something.
Avatar n tn Hi You have not mentioned if you have any itching, discomfort, discharge, or any other symptoms. A swelling in pubic area can be a mole or wart or abscess. If it was an abscess, strong antibiotics or surgical drainage may be required to heal it. Genital warts are usually found on the genitals, in the pubic area, and the area between the thighs. Since you have diabetes, your immune system has been weakened. This may have caused development of warts.
Avatar m tn These have since subsided but I wonder if the rash is a symptom of herpes in relation to the mass in my pubic area. The rash and mass are likely unrelated but I am uncertain. There is no burning sensation when I urinate, and I always use a condom when I have sex. From my limited research online, the mass does not resemble any herpes "clusters" or the like. I will see my doctor on Wednesday but would appreciate some preliminary insight/thoughts. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have been getting a boil or a bump in my pubic area. It comes back around the same spot every 2-3 months or so. The top is pretty soft and around the bottom/base its hard, and about a dime in size. I'm 19 and have not been sexually active as yet. The boil takes about a week to burst and its all blood that comes out. And just lately this same boil has shown up a couple inches from where it used to show up, can you help me? PS I am a male.

Avatar n tn A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out through the surface of the skin. Pls keep the area clean and apply somewarm compresses. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.Avoid any kind of cosmetics.

Avatar m tn Last week a strange bump formed on my mid-left pubic area. There was a hair in the middle of it so I pulled it out and there was a pus-like substance on the end. Around last Wednesday or Thursday, it was hurting so bad that it hurt to get up and sit down. I had squeezed out some pus-like substance from it a few times and then it started feeling alot better. Around Friday I believe, I tried extracting more but none came out. I picked a bit at it to see if I could find another hair, but nothing.
Avatar f tn Hey, Have been getting pain normally in my left side just above the groin area for about 1 month now. It comes and goes sometimes it can be quite painful and other times its just a bit annoying. Sometimes the pain then moves across to the right side and again in can be painful or not but it is never as bad as the left side. The other day I noticed a lump on my pubic area it seems to be quite red underneath the skin but appears only slightly red on the surface.

Avatar f tn Hello, It can be due to a boil or an abscess. A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out through the surface of the skin. Boil is usually due to plugged sweat glands that become infected or by an ingrown hair. Apply warm compresses and keep the area clean.
Avatar m tn Hello Doctor: For the last 3 months or so, I´ve had this small, "dome" like bump, in my pubic area, just where the penis begins. It looks like a pimple. Its "skin" colored and its only one. When I first noticed it, three months ago, I went to the doctor and he said it was foliculitis, and he gave me salicilic acid. To be honest, I didn´t use it every day, in fact when I noticed that the bump reduced it self, I stopped using it.
Avatar n tn I went to a doctor that day, and he examined my pubic area and felt the lymph nodes in my leg. He said there was no swelling and too early to make a diagnoses, being that the bump was there for only about 24 hours. He advised me to wait to see if the condition worsened. He didn't want to prescribe anything. I requested that I be tested for herpes just in case. Since then, I have been online researching folliculitis. There's some pretty scary stuff out there linking folliculitis to HIV.
Avatar m tn hi, i got a small lump in my pubic hair region. It was not painful but not sure what the problem was, so i shaved the area to have a better look. if became even larger and painful so i went to a GP. they examined it and told me its likely to be an abscess, and was prescribed antibiotics. its still present, and i am travelling for a year backpacking. i have been taking the abs for 3 days now, i was wondering how long does it take for an abscess to resolve?
Avatar f tn Hi I'm 21 and have been dealing with abscesses for a year, I've gotten one on my arm, 6 on my buttocks, 4 on my thigh area, and 1 in the pubic area.
Avatar f tn If it is in your case, you'll have a sexual partner who has similar bumps in the pubic area. If not, then it doesn't matter where you got it. Please see a doctor in person, and get this properly diagnosed and treated. You have nothing to be scared about. Take care. Dr.
Avatar f tn No other part of my body besides my pubic hair area and under part of my penis have been affected. I have no other symptoms. I am very worried about the larger bump under my penis. It have been feeling more discomfort and burning sensation. It appears to be swollen and it hard (when you feel it). It does not appear to have a "head" and doesn't look that the rest of the rash.
Avatar n tn I had a lump in the genital area. After a few days it oussed pus and blood. Then cleared up a week later a have another one. Same deal hard at first still hard around the area now oussing pus and blood. Went to the doctor and was told it wasn't herpes but she doesn't know what cause it and thinks it may be infected glands. Anyone have any ideas? I have reach menopause. Does that mater?
Avatar n tn A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus.Ingrown hair are the commonest causes of boils. Apply hot compresses on the boil.As long as the boil is hard,it is difficult draining it.But once it becomes soft,drainage is easy.You need to consult a doctor for its drainage or for prescription of antibiotics.
Avatar m tn About 10 days ago I was in San Diego at a friends house. The place had dogs in it and was filthy. On the drive home my legs were burning around the inside near my scrotum. Then a rash of four pimples that were extremely painful. I tried to pop one and the pimples doubled. I noticed the burning was from inflamed glands above the sides of my pubic region. What the hell is this? The doctor is treating me for scabies. Its been 3 days now the glands are still a little tender and swollen.
Avatar f tn Sexually active for almost 1 year but not facing any problem. I have itch around my pubic hair (left side) area few months ago. It comes and goes so I don't really care about it. When the itch approach I can't control myself sometimes and i scratched it. Then I can notice white dandruff/ flakes around the area. Sometimes there will be 1/2 pimples there. Recently I realize that the itch area has widen to the right side. Last month i started to feel there is a tingling and pain in my vaginal.
