Hi i had a blister on my bikini area i think because of an ingrown hair i alos think it’s a boil had it for a few weeks. It popped on its own and is taking time to heal pus and blood comes out of it and it smells. It doesn’t hurt anymore but was sore before I can’t let it dry up without something scraping on it as it’s quite high up. It’s fully dried up then starting leaking again

Okay no problem.

What questions can I answer about this?

Expert:  the-good-doctor replied 9 days ago.

If this is draining it should be okay.

You might need antibiotics though.

I would need to see a picture to be sure

But if you can't provide a picture I would recommend going to urgent care to get checked to see if you need them.
