Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Thank you for the question. I will be answering your query shortly.
I understand your concern.
Can you see any pus or discharge coming out of that lump?
Are you sexually active?
Any history of STIs?
Can you please share a picture of that?
Yes. If that's okay with you.
Thank you for sharing the photo. That's an abscess in evolution. It may open up later and start discharging some pus. I suggest you apply warm compresses on this every 4 hours and keep it clean. You may also apply topical triple antibiotic Neosporin on this for 5 days. For pain you can use Tablet Ibuprofen 400 mg as needed. That should help.
Please let me know if you have any other queries. Thanks.
