i've had this bump like between my vagina and leg..like where they meet pretty much.. i don't know how to explain where it is though..for about a little over a week, and i think it's an ingrown hair, but it hasn't gotten bigger or anything, in fact, i think it looks a little smaller then last week....
i'm actually freaking out though, i'm hoping i'm over thinking this because little things freak me out.
i've been putting bandaids on it, and some peroxyde.
i just need some reassurance
i've never been to a gyno or anyhting like that, sop things like this scare me really bad.
please help.

It's entirely possible that what you're seeing is an ingrown hair or a pimple - we can get those anywhere on our body. You can try putting a hot compress on it a couple times a day and see if that helps, but if it doesn't go away you will want to see your doctor (you don't necessarily need a gyn for this, your regular doctor should be able to diagnose it just fine, and if they can't, they'll let you know).
