Hi, im a 21 yr old female and really don't want to go to the doctors. I do brazilian waxes and as usual get a few ingrown hairs that i treat with an ingrown hair cream which works well. I had what I thought to be an ingrown hair on my knickerline on the right hand side. I began applying the cream more than a few days ago, but its not going down and has now gotten inflamed and sore. I was thinking it could be a swollen lymph node but I have no infection, cold, sickness or anything that my bodies fighting off. Its quite red, sore to touch and just generally hurts. Has anyone had this before? And did it go away on its own? Any advice to save a trip to the doctor would be great!!
