Help, I shaved my lady bits at Christmas, anyway had a massive ingrown hair that was a a red hard lump, thought this had gone but it keeps coming back and sometimes weeps, I know tmi, anyway it's sore now do think it warrants a trip to doctor! It's angry and red and the kind of smooth, also I have some floxocillan should i just take them?
Thank you

I would see your gp. I would definitely not take any antibiotics that are just hanging around! Tempting though that might be. If you need antibiotics they will be the best ones for that type of infection with their own dosage. Some need taking for, say, 3 days and others for 10. Or whatever.
