Those are ingrown hairs.

Anyone who has a problem zit thats having a hard time healing, try this and let me know if it helped you. Mix one tablespoon of sea salt with three tablespoons of warm water, apply to a cotton ball or a paper towel. Apply to the zit for ten to fifteen minutes, and then wash it off.

Yes, as your body is going to react to ingrown hairs (which are hairs growing BELOW the surface of your skin) as a foriegn object, and thus your body is trying to treat it as infection.

Best you can do is keep the area well washed and dry. It's fairly naturual for people to ingrown hairs in the groin area, so don't worry!

You could shave down. That's what I do - helps with ingrown hairs ALOT - also makes them easier to see and extract with a pair of tweezers when you do find one.

I had one sore once due to ingrown hair. Had to dig it out with tweezers. Unpleasant. Shaved is the way to go, bra.

Cleanser: I should probably use one of these, huh?

Moisturizer: Well, my skin doesn't exactly require one, but I use Cetaphil with SPF15 during the day, just for the sun protection. Red marks, I will not let your cruel photosynthesis ruin my complexion!

Topicals:

Current Status: Looking better, but still not perfect.

none of my friends share the experience :/

i heard you shouldnt pop them or it leads to infection, but would using a topical down there help at all?

Weird, I always have atl east 5-10 ingrown hairs, unless I don't shave or epilate at all.

Anyways, it sounds like it could be molluscum contagiosum.

They’re more than likely abscesses which is a collection of pus that has come together. Some reaction of the tissue where it has tried to fight bacteria and debris and has wound up together and cause a balloon of pus... painful I know. Google abscesses.

They say it’s usually an ingrown hair or the like but I did not have any. I had the same problem for years and just recently I got sick of it and saw my doc who put me on antibiotics.

Shaving or wearing tight underwear doesn’t help, but it’s not the prime cause. It’s actually hereditary. Two of my aunts and my grandmother have the same thing – one had them on her back, one had them in her underarms. I’ve sadly wound up with almost all the crap in the family genes and have them forming near the crotch.

You've probably done it already but if anyone else is researching this: see your doctor immediately to put you on antibiotics – get the same sex doctor so you are more comfortable, but they know about these so don’t be embarrassed. You’re not alone, I have the same thing! They know this can be hereditary and you’ve wound up with the bloody crap in the family. Get advice from the pro. I did and I’m now on antibiotics and they work.

I've heard that salicylic acid helps with ingrown hairs/shaving bumps. I use a lotion with a small amount of sa in it after I shave, and I rarely get bumps.
