About a month ago I had a really painful grey/red lump on the inside of my thigh, just outside the knicker line. It was painful and when I squeezed it, a bit of pus came out and then it went.

It came back a week ago but it doesn’t hurt and it won’t squeeze! Is there something good waiting to come out? What do I do?

Ingrown hair?

I don’t think so as it’s not a place where there is any hair

Looks like it might get juicy... Hot bath?

Go to the doctors just to be sure, my DH is always going on about ticks, lymes disease (sp) ? Etc 😳
Hope it’s just an ingrown hair.

Most likely a hair

Ingrown hair. If you’re brave get a needle to it, and some tweezers.

That doesn’t look like a bite from a tick that could cause Lyme disease. They look like bull’s eyes. Looks like an ingrowing hair to me.

Would you really go to the doctor for that marcia?

V poss a hair. I’d stick a pin in/under it and pull it out grin

Ok I’m excited now. Today at some point I will get digging.

I hope it’s not one of those disappointing nothing lumps

It looks like a boil. A hot compress might help but definitely don’t poke or squeeze it. You only need a GP if it gets infected.
