Have you had this before because you said you thought it might be due to an ingrown hair but you couldn't find it and you usually can. If this is common for you maybe it is something like that, also I hear it is common to get abscesses in that area too. Try soaking in a hot bath with Epsom salts and see if you cant bring it to a head.Maybe even keep a hot washcloth down there while watching t.v.. When all else fails, go see a professional.
