    I have had an unusual ingrown hair type of bump on the shaft of my penis since my late teens that will not go away

    So I have had this ingrown sort of hair towards the base of my penis on the bottom side for years now. Its sort of like 1 or 2 hair follicles, maybe more have gotten trapped under the skin but continued to grow and eventually created 3 slight openings around the outside edges of the bump. If I squeeze it and play around with it I am able to get some puss to come out and sometimes I able to tweeze some loose hairs out from in there. I will immediately sterilize it but this usually causes it to flare up into a pimple like thing for a few days, and then it resides after a while and is still slightly visible just reduced. It is becoming very annoying and tedious to try and keep it cleaned out. I have off offhandedly asked my regular physicians a few times over the years but none of them seem to concerned about it since it was not a STD. It has also been quite embarrassing explaining it to girlfriends in the past even thought I know it is nothing sexually transmitted. It is more visible or prominent when I am erect as opposed to when I am limp. I . Please anyone who has any experience or knowledge of what exactly it is I have, and how to go about treating it that would be greatly appreciated.

    First of all, I have to agree with the Physicians that you do not have an STD. What you are describing is an issue with the hair follicle getting infected. One thing that will cause the problem is if you wear very tight jeans - especially if you happen to not wear underwear under your pants. Really, you need to be very careful about squeezing the bump because, even though you are sterilizing it, bacteria can still get in there. I would make an appointment with a dermatologist because they are more experienced with these kinds of issues. I hope everything works out! :)
