Dark Bump Near Bikini Line?

For about a month now I have had a dark, blood filled bump on my skin near my bikini line. I popped it (bad idea, of course) and there was a lot of blood. Since popping it, there is a hole in it and continues to come back. I do shave that area and I'm not sexually active. Researching says it could be an ingrown hair but I'm still not sure.

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Unless you get this examined, only guesses can be made.

An ingrown hair is the obvious answer but it could also be a cyst or some other growth that needs to be checked out. Ingrown hairs can take a long time to heal and can leave that little hole behind. Look into laser hair removal for the future if you can.
