Hi, i just wanted to run something by you.
I've just noticed i have one red spot/lump right in the middle of my pubic hair. it is SO itchy and has been like this for a few days, ever since i trimmed my pubic hair with ordinary silver scissors (not accompanied with shaving/waxing etc). Since i do not have a boyfriend and have never had sex before, I am ruling out an STI although i am very paranoid about these things (there's no way i can get an STI just by sitting down where someone else has sat is there?)
Anyway, do you think it could be an allergic reaction to the scissors perhaps (are you even supposed to trim your hair? I thought that was fine and I didn't even go that far down either). Do you think i should get it checked out or wait to see if it goes down by itself?

thanks for any advice

It's actually pretty unlikely this is about the scissors. My best guess is that it might, in fact, be a total coincidence, and is probably just an ingrown hair or a zit that just happened to occur right at the same time.

Since you haven't been sexually active in any way before, unless this gets much larger or painful, I don't see a need to see your doctor. Most likely if you just leave it be, it'll be gone in a few days.
