Pimples on mon pubis, occur after shaving, during periods, pus, bleeding on popping, dark red bumps. Cure?

Hello. I m 21 years old, about 5 foot 6 inches and around 260 pounds. For years I have been getting pimples or boils (according to the internet) on my mon pubis . Typically I get one right before or after my period or after shaving. I would normally wait until it came to a head and pop it. First pus would come out, and then blood , and it would go away. I had one about a month ago and went through the same process, but now it s staying around. It s not so much a pimple anymore, it s slightly raised but there s no pus or anything in it. It s a darkish red color and I can t seem to get it to go away. Help!

hi ..thanks for your query.
From the site and pattern of eruptions you have described, i can think of two most commonly occurring possibilities:
1) Folliculitis : Bacterial infection occuring in hair folicles.Frequently recurring and very persistent. Occur due to colonization of bacteria like Staphylococcus.
2) Molluscum contagiosum: Viral growths. Usually asymptomatic.Appear as pearly white papules , either in clusters or singly.Spread due to inoculation in surrounding areas, e.g. shaving .
In either case ,you should visit a dermatologist and get treated appropriately.
Hope this helps.take care!
