What I think is a spot... down there...

Sooo for the past few days I've had what I assumed to be a spot in my bits, has been a red bump and felt quite tender/sore. Today in the shower I went to have a look at it and it was bleeding. It's now a quite big bump under the skin and looking a bit bruised. What the hell is this and what do I do with it?!?!

Poor you. Where exactly is it?

Is it a cyst? I get them on my inner labia sometimes and they are really sore. Hot bath can help.

Bartholins Cyst?

Need pic really.
Could be anything from herpes to a cyst perhaps a visit to gp?

Err not sure about a pic. shock

Where about is it? Could post a picture in spotter corner! We love a bit of that! grin
As Pp have said could it be a cyst? Or ingrown hair?

Ingrown hair?

No pic of something so personal.

Do you shave there, could be a cyst caused by an ingrown hair

Probably a cyst but find a local sexual health clinic and get them to check it out as the bleeding sounds unusual? Wouldn't bother the GP!

Please don't post a picture of your bits and post them on the internet.

Sounds like whatever it is may burst soon. Maybe Epsom salts in warm water (I think it's Epsom salts)?

Erm please ignore Patricia and any other weirdo that ever asks for a picture of your genitals for that matter.

Could well be a boil. Have you tried a hot compress?

Serenitymummy Wed 01-Feb-17 21:43:26

Inner labia really. How will I know if it's a cyst? I really just thought it was a spot (have been exercising a lot lately and figured it was because I've been a bit sweaty) but the fact I hadn't even touched it and it was bleeding is what worries me?

Serenitymummy Wed 01-Feb-17 21:43:55

I only shower as hate having a bath, would soaking it help?!

Sparklingbrook Wed 01-Feb-17 21:45:49

I would definitely try a bath. The heat might encourage it to pop.

Patriciathestripper1 Wed 01-Feb-17 21:51:34

It was a picture of the spot itself not the genitals! That would be inappropriate and weird hmm
