So I noticed I had a really weird zit right about where the leg meets the crotch, and it looked like there was something solid in it. I popped it and there actually was something solid - not like what you usually find in a zit (dried up sebum, skin, etc), but shaped like a seed, about half a centimeter long, flat, and dark. I looked at it but it didn't appear to have legs or anything, so I don't think it was a tic. Anyway, otherwise the pimple was normal (lots of pus- sorry, I know it's gross), albeit large and inconveniently placed.

It doesn't sound like any kind of blackhead I've heard of. Could someone please tell me if they know what it could have been? I'm kind of freaked out.

Don't be freaked. If you didn't know it was there and it was there for awhile then maybe the pimple hardened from sitting there for awhile. If you know it wasn't there for a long time then go see a doctor about it.

Seed thing in my leg, but with more stuff in it.
I just had the same thing. It had been on my leg for about 2 months, finally came out today. I'm kind of freaking out because it looks like a bug. I squeezed the seed looking thing that came out and white head looking stuff came out of that. What the hell was in my leg? Please help me.

Extremely eHealthy
Sometimes ingrown hairs become infected much like a pimple but without the body's natural ability to keep the follicle oily so the spetum that builds up in the infected follicle hardens. I've never seen anything dry or hard pushed out of an infected ingrown hair but I've seen an almost black oblong cell of hardened !**@!'d say it was about the firmness of a papaya seed. If you're not experiencing this regularly in that area I wouldn't worry with a doctor but maybe wash down there with an antibacterial soap and take a little bit better care of your skin in the area.

Gotta say, not my favorite topic but I had one in the same area about twenty years ago. When I messed with it, it became infected and healed slowly over the next few months and now I'm left with a little scar there. It didn't seem to bother me in any way so I didn't bother with a doctor but I will recommend leaving it alone! Just allow your body to rid itself of the stranger without any help from you:) We tend to do more harm than good when we take over where the body is trying to do its job. Just like a zit on your face, touching it in any way just introduces harmful bacteria carried on our hands. Just keep the nasty little thing clean and dry, and leave it be!

These are a type of cyst. I have had one before on the underside of my penile shaft (sorry for being so graphic). it is not a bug and it is actually an oil deposit that was created in a pore without a hair follicle. These are just a sign that you need to be washing a little more in that particular area.

gross zit seed
I had the same thing!

I had a horrible but fairly small red welt appear on my upper rib cage. It appeared there over night, though. I'm not someone who gets a lot of acne, and even during puberty and teenage years, I never got zits or acne anywhere but my face. This thing was BRIGHT red, and as soon as I touched it, it bled, and kept bleeding. It was very hard, so I squeezed it. After a decent amount of blood, a seed-sized, very hard black/grey oval came out, attached to fleshy but thin and translucent white matter. Although the matter was thin, it was not easily removed from the grew seed. Physically, it looked like a dead, small insect, such as a fruit fly, but it wasn't. The small lump, although less obvious and red, was still very hard, so I squeezed some more. After more blood, another grey seed came out! This time there was no white attachment, but the presence of a second one was truly alarming! I have squeezed many a blackhead, zit, and cyst for other people, and this was nothing like anything I've ever seen. I'm concerned that this may happen again, and want to know what it was/how to prevent it!

Willa, did you ever figure out what your pimple was? I had the same thing. I too never got acne in my teens nor 20s. Yet last night I noticed a sudden red bump on my nose! I got sick of it and popped it, a ton of blood came out. I could see a "seed" or something in there, so I pulled it out. Really gross! More blood came out for a long time. I don't know what this is, nor do I want this to happen again.
