Should I be concerned about hardened skin around the penis area ?

a couple of days ago a pimple or what I believe to be a pimple showed up between my penis and scrotum just to the right side. I popped it and afterwards it became hard. it is almost healed on the skin level but is still hard underthe skin. Now i noticed the vein directly below it is hard also. I it starts where the pimple was and goes for about an inch to the right going towards my blatter. Should I wait for couple of days to see if it goes away or should this be a great concern for me. Also what could be going on here?

hi,thanks for query.It seems that what you are having is some hair root infection may due to pulled hair or scratching.Do not worry,this should go on it own.Wait for 3-4 more days and it will reduce in size.Do not press it and touch that area frequently.You need to see your doctor if this does not go with in one week or so.
wishing you good health.
