hi:) i scraped myself shaving down there about a year ago and now have this weird gray bump where i was cut. it’s hard and feels like a scab almost. any ideas as to what happened? thank you!
Ouch! We have all been there while shaving! It’s hard to say exactly without taking a look but when skin is injured, scar tissue forms over the wound to repair & protect the injury. Sometimes extra scar tissue grows and can form a bump called a hypertrophic scar. I would make an appointment to confirm this with your primary care provider, potentially via a remote visit due to COVID-19.
