You should definitely get it checked out. I’ve had similar a couple of times, usually started (suspected) by an infected hair follicle. I followed the drill laid out by my doc and drained em myself.
Since then I’ve always shaved my legs (again, docs suggestion) and not had a recurrence.Posted 4 years ago
I have a very small cyst( pretty sure it’s nothing more serious) at the top of my thigh in the crease where my leg joins my pelvis.It has become a little sore and riding is definitely not helping.Anyone had anything similar or have advice on treatment.I don’t wont to bother my doctor I just wondered if there any home remedies I could use.Posted 4 years ago
Dont ignore it – had one in same place and it got bigger and swelled all the way up to my pubic bone like a long sausage.
Put me in hospital for surgery and 6 weeks of open wound draining and packing- not nice
Had the same thing,most painfull and embarasing,hospital addmission for 3 days, 4 units of blood due to severe anaemia, no food or drink, ketamine injection in leg, made my leg just go numb, 6 weeks of district nurse packing the 3 inch by 1 inch deep wound in soft tissue of buttock, iron tablets for anaemia, 2 baruium enemas to find the cause of the anaemia, then a camera down throat, another day in hospital, and finally a big wound.Posted 4 years agoprawnyMember
I had a huge cycst on my arris, ignored it for ages, finally went to the docs when it was golfball sized, he told me not to worry about it unless it got painful.
Shortly after, over the xmas holidays, I gave it a squeeze (always did, just out of habit and too check the size) and it ruptured in a fairly spectacular way. No pain, no blood, just a huge amount of stinky gunge. Managed to get it pretty much all out in the end, took a few weeks though, lucky it didn’t get infected.
Urgh, the smell.Posted 4 years agoprojectMember
As for the packing, its aquasel or something similar to quick hem in looks, it goes in and is probed deeply with a long metal probe, and swells up in size, next day up early and soak it well in the shower, and await nurse, for removal, went on for 6 weeks every day,and according to the nice nurses, they do often get infected and the infection goes very deep.Posted 4 years ago
