User :   Okay so i got hip piercings like over a year ago
Doctor :   Ok
User :   and nothings been wrong with them since
Doctor :   Are you having any problem right now?
User :   but a couple of months ago the one to the right it started looking like a pimple was growing in between the 2 ends of the piercings.. then it had the little white head but it didnt feel like a pimple it wasnt hard. It was soft so i poked it with a needle because i figured it was pus..so after i poked it pus came out and then blood. Ever since that it tries to heal but when its almost healed more pus accumilates and i end up having to poke it so the pus can come out
Doctor :   Let me read what you have typed
User :   also after the pus comes out like a very think sticky layer of skin shows up
User :   i dont know what that is
User :   or whats going on
Doctor :   Since you have poked it and pus is there it seems like a bacterial infection..
Doctor :   DO not poke it now.
Doctor :   Has the size of the infected area increased
User :   not really
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Clean the area with any antibacterial soap and water twice daily
User :   okay
User :   ive put peroxide
User :   and alcahol
Doctor :   When did you apply it?
User :   but it doesnt really make a differnce
User :   on the infection
User :   and i used sea salt water
Doctor :   Do not use these things, just clean it with antibacterial ssoap
Doctor :   Also do not let it be moist.
User :   what will that do?
Doctor :   It will not help in drying the area
User :   so what will it do exactly?
Doctor :   And can make the infection spread.
Doctor :   Also you can clean it with tea tree oil
User :   what does the oil do?
Doctor :   It is an antibacterial oil and will help in proper cleaning
User :   Oh okay thank you
User :   btw oneeeee more question
Doctor :   It will also help in preventing the spread of infection
User :   back to the vagina question...its not only my lips that are darkening its also the clitoris
Doctor :   It may be because of the shaving only.
User :   but i dont shave my clitoris
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Shaving does affect that area
User :   theres no way i can make that pink again?
Doctor :   I do not think so, i am sorry
User :   okay thanks
Doctor :   Is there anything else i can help you with?
User :   yes im sorry for all the questions
User :   im having sharp lower back pains. I thought i had kidney rocks but i went to the doctor and took a pee test and i had nothing.
User :   ive been like this for a month now
Doctor :   Since when are you having this pain?
Doctor :   Is there any other symptom like burning in urine or stool passing?
User :   not at all.
Doctor :   Since when are you having this pain?
User :   since like a month
