Hi XXXXX

Thanks for the query.

Puffiness and harder skin in pubic hair line are indicator of some infection. It can be due to some hair follicle infection or some insect bite.

As a physical examination is required to make a correct diagnosis, in my opinion, you should take a consultation with a dermatologist to plan your treatment according to diagnosis.

Hope this information is informative and helpful to you.

Good luck.

Its not in the hairline but above. Right below my c- cection incision. I had my c-cection 3 years ago so I know its not that. Any other ideas? Doesnt feel like a skin infection.

Hi XXXXX,

Thanks for the clarification.

The area you specified in your query has bladder and uterus underneath it. It can be harder and puffed due to their pathology or due to some ovarian pathology.

As you are sure that it is not something superficial, I will advise you to go for an urgent whole abdomen ultrasonography to rule out any serious pathological swelling/mass.

Hope this information is informative and helpful to you.

Good luck.
