Can you send me a picture?
Yes dear I am still here
Sorry, please give me a moment
Dear customer, it is a pleasure to be able to assist you today; looking at the images you have sent me, it seems to be a small inflamed hair follicle, what we commonly know as folliculitis; you have nothing to worry about. It will disappear by itself after a few days; it is essential not to expose the area to the sun and to use sunscreen of at least 45 fps which will help not to leave any scar. Also sealed, you must take into account the possibility of using clothing that covers this region as the incidence of ultraviolet rays from the sun can be counterproductive to the healing process; you can be calm; it is a genuinely mild injury that will disappear by itself after a few days.
If this inflammatory process has been going on for years and you have noticed recent changes, your doctor will probably consider the possibility of performing a biopsy to visualize it under the light of the microscope in a pathology laboratory, but above all, I want you to keep in mind that it does not have any suspicious or suggestive characteristic of malignancy nor is it cancer, so I want you to be reassured from this point of view.
