Last night, I noticed a bump on my inner thigh and it got me worried. After doing some reading it seems that it may simply be an ingrown hair but I need some assurance so I can sleep in peace tonight.

  • That could be molloscum contagiosum. (see large thread in this forum, and do some google image seraches on MC) -- the shape of it makes me wonder. Seems like it could be an ingrown hair as well.

  • I get those all the time in my belly/pubic area. I just thought they were zits!
