You’re nothing special – most people will get an epidermoid cyst at some point in their life but these smooth round lumps, commonly found on the scalp, neck, face, chest and upper back can often, quite understandably, cause alarm. Read more →
I got my snug pierced a month ago and a couple of weeks ago I noticed a bump near the ball on the end of the bar on both sides, I've left it as I got a similar bump near my Tragus piercing that eventually disappeared without me having to do anything. The bump on my ear has now turned into a pea size lump and forms a skin type texture around it that I've picked off a couple of times but underneath that the bump is quite squishy and hurts whenever I touch it, it's white in colour with bits of red and I don't know what to do, is it anything for me to worry about?
you have a minor infection in it its really common with a snug. mine gets infect almost once a month but usually sorts its self out. go your doctors and get some antibiotic and i little tip get a flexible bar put in to take some off the pressure of the back of the ear. i left a curved metal bar in and ended up with a massive infectious bubble on the back of my ear that burst. since ive put a bio flex bar in no problems. also snugs will take forever to heal
I am only 13 and while masturbation i felt this hard bump at the Back wall of my vagina, i looked at diagrams of the vagina to identify what this bump was but there was no large bump on the diagrams. What is it and can it effect my reproduction systems to form a baby?
Well i have notice that above my vagina whole there is a stiff bump, am just finish my period , am just wondering why do i have that bump as it is big like Worried here !!!
I have the same thing I think. Does yours really hurt? I'm 16, and never had sex before, and it's just big angry red but mine like yours is stiff. I thought it might be an STD, but I realised you actually have to have had sex to get one, now I'm just even more worried.

i had my tragus periced 9 months ago inside the of my ear where the percing is its raised like a bump and sometimes sore on the outside just over the percing its self its also like a small bump with hard skin ive got a feeling its infected if so what should i use?
Hi! I had my nose pierced around 6 weeks ago and my little lump appeared (I know its not in the same place but its still cartilage). I kept cleaning it with salt solution and Savlon and it only seemed to be making it worse. So I contacted my piercer. They said Ive basically cleaned it too much so its stopped trying to heal and has none of its own bacteria in it. Its not infected (and yours definately won't be after 9 months!) They are very common on cartilage piercings. The best thing to do it act as if it isn't there at all and it will go by itself! If it is still there after about 3 weeks then go and see you piercer and they will take a look! Hope this helps!

I've what i think is hair bump that just won't go away. It's locate on the lips of my vagina. It's been there about a month. I tried to pop it, and it only irritated more and bleed a lot. And, I have had this check out by my GYN 2x's. She advise that this is only a hair bump that has got infected and scared over. My question is how long should this take to go away. And, what are some at home treatment? When should I feel this is serious concern and could be more?
My ob said the same. Said its a pimple and it got so big it popped. I think looked online and found it it could be a boil and it could be a staph infection. So I went to a Dermotologist. My advice is to see one. They can help mire
I have never had an ingrown hair but have developed a very dark large bump on my bikini line, not red just much darker than my normal skin tone. In the last 2 days two smaller dark circles have appeared either side of it but aren't yet raised into a bump. Is it related and should I be concerned?
About a month ago I had my hair pulled extrembly hard, it was very sore and swollen but I didn't notice until a couple of days ago that there was a hard bump where it was pulled. I read online that if massaged the bump will get better but after massaging it a lot it has enlarged more and become almost like a goose egg. Please help?????
