About a year ago or more, I had a painful lump under my skin , almost like a swollen knot on my inner thigh right next to my groin. It turned into more of a blister and just popped on it's own and left a small scar. It never looked like a sore or anything , just swollen and basically flesh colored or a little red and inflamed. I went to the gyno later and he told me it was nothing to worry about that it was just an infected sweat gland and that I didn't have anything. Well I just had another one, and I think it might have been an ingron hair that got infected but I am not sure. Anyway I looked up infected ingrown hairs and it said to put hot compresses to draw the hair out. So I did that last night and tonight it was more of a blister than a knot and popped. It doesn't look like a sore or anything, just skin colored and went down almost back to normal but it is still a little swollen. Do you think this is a disease or just an infected hair or sweat gland?? I don't have insurance right now because I got laid off and I really can't afford to go to the doctor. It was in a different place this time, more towards the back of my groin and inner thigh. These were very painful if I sit on them wrong or something. It doesn't look like any of the pictures I have seen on here of herpes or anything. The pictures always show a lot of little red sores. ANyway, sorry so long and I hope someone can help me. This really freaks me out. Thanks for any help!!
