Red bump on thigh
Posted on: 03/31/2009
I have a big red bump in between my thighs near my vagina. It just recently got bigger. I popped it today and blood came out for about 5 minutes, but it's still pretty big and sore. Should I be worried? What could it be?
Most likely, this is a cyst that has gotten inflamed. Since it is painful, it is probably infected, therefore you need to see a doctor for proper treatment, which usually involves drainage of the cyst and often oral antifiotics. Good luck!
