The Dangers Of Pressing Down On The Small, Pus-like Lumps On The Genitals?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, in my genitals there is a small lump like pus, and I already squeezed it, is it dangerous?
Previously, it was necessary to ascertain the cause of the lump in the genitals / vagina due to what. Lumps in the vagina can be caused by several factors such as:
Acne, ulcers, and inflammation of the hair follicles / folliculitis
Tumors and malignancies
We recommend that when there are lumps not squashed or broken. If it is squeezed and the pus comes out, it could be a boil, acne, or folliculitis. The risk that may arise if the lump burst is infection. Therefore, I suggest that you check with your doctor directly first so that the cause of the lump is confirmed and if necessary the doctor can provide further treatment to treat the lump and prevent infection in the lump.
Meanwhile you can do the following tips:
Warm compress several times a day
Do not apply powder or ointment to the broken lump without a doctor's advice
Keep the area clean with clean water and antibacterial soap
Use underwear that is comfortable and not tight
Hope it can help you,
