How can you pop a big painful spot/pimple with no head?

Please do not pop a blind pimple. I am going to share a personal story which may help. I have had cystic acne all through my teens and through my twenties. When I was 30 I listened to someone and let them pop a blind pimple on my face. He was full of old wives tales and I should never have listened to him.Guess what the next day my face blew up. I had to go to the ER for cryotherapy as my face was inflamed. It took 10 years to repair the damage that person had caused. I really cannot describe the agony, and frustration I went through at that time. Learn from my experience and do not do that.What helps?Ice the area gently.Do not touch it too muchApply honey on it overnightDrink a lot of water

I found a lump next to my clitoris. What could this be?

Hi I'm 21 and a few days ago, I was itchy down there and when I itched, I felt a hard lump next to my clitoris. It is hard and about the size of a pea. Its not sore when I'm not doing anything but when it is pressed, its stingy, itchy and quite tender but nothing too bad or horrible. I can't see if its a spot or anything due to hair.

I have only ever had one sexual partner and that's the guy I have been with for the last 4 years and we have been tested and are both clean. I masterbated a week ago and never felt this. Maybe a pulled a hair out by accident or damaged myself down there or something?

Could it be a boil or something? Have any of you women had this? This is my first lump down there so I don't know if its common to have things like that every so often.

I am on the pill, its been warm so I have been sweaty and I wear skinnies if that goes for anything.

Very sore lump on back of leg,very painful,LOOKED LIKE PIMPLE,NOW BIG RASH, HELP!!!?

If it continues to grow very fast then see a doctor very quickly - it MIGHT (maybe, but don't panic, yet...) be a staff type of infection, which can get out of control rapidly. Just be cautious and keep an eye on it.

Also, many folks have had good luck taking Hydrogen Peroxide and using a small container to hold the stuff on the spot for several minutes, If you see fuzzy bubbles that's good...

Of course I am not a doctor - but I would think that applying some Neosporin to it for tonight might be helpful... that is what I would do...

Why do we get a bump when we hit our head on something?

The force damaged the local blood vessels, which will bleed, causing blood to collect locally and stop flowing when the pressure from the surrounding tissues are high enough stops the bleeding, this is the bump you feel. The blood also attracts fluid, and an inflammatory response, making it swell even more. After some time it will be gone, resorbed by our body by itself.

Tender lump on top of scalp?

It could be the beginning of a boil, which is an infected hair follicle. Home treatment is an option for most simple boils. Ideally, treatment should begin as soon as a boil is noticed since early treatment may prevent later complications.

The primary treatment for most boils is heat application, usually with hot soaks or hot packs. Heat application increases the circulation to the area and allows the body to better fight off the infection by bringing antibodies and white blood cells to the site of infection.

As long as the boil is small and firm, opening the area and draining the boil is not helpful, even if the area is painful. However, once the boil becomes soft or "forms a head" (that is, a small pustule is noted in the boil), it can be ready to drain. Once drained, pain relief can be dramatic. Most small boils, such as those that form around hairs, drain on their own with hot soaks. On occasion, and especially with larger boils, medical treatment is required. In this situation, the boil will need to be drained or "lanced" by a health-care practitioner. Frequently, these larger boils contain several pockets of pus that must be opened and drained.

Antibiotics are often used to eliminate any accompanying bacterial infection, especially if there is an infection of the surrounding skin. However, antibiotics are not needed in every situation. In fact, antibiotics have difficulty penetrating the outer wall of an abscess well and often will not cure an abscess without additional surgical drainage.
