I have a bump near my vaginal area. Is it an ingrown hair, or should I see a doctor?
It could be ingrown hair but it also could be a number of things like a blocked gland or enlarged lymph node, among other things. I would suggest making an appointment to see your primary care or gynecologist to have it looked at so they can assess this properly and identify a plan for treatment if necessary.
