A few days ago, I felt a slight pain in my pubic region. Thinking it was a pimple, I just ignored it. Now, it doesn't seem to hurt anymore, except when I press on it hard, then it hurts slightly. It's about the size of pea. It's pinkish skin-colored, if that's a way to describe it - kind of like a mosquito bite, only hard and more swollen. The last time I shaved was a few weeks ago. My pubic hair is relatively long at this state. What could this be?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be healed follicular infection.
If redness and pain is there,then topical mupirocin or fusidic acid will be helpful.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
