I am a 16 year old male I have a

Patient

Q: I am a 16 year old male. I have a reddish bump on my pubic region. It's been there a few weeks and first appeared shortly after shaving down there so I thought it may be an ingrown hair but the bump has stayed there for weeks and at times I can squeeze puss and blood out of it and it usually doesn't hurt. Sometimes it does hurt and gets slightly swollen but not often or for longer than a few days. I know it's not an STD because I am a virgin, I've done oral and hand stuff and had it done to me but the time the bump appeared I hadn't had any sexual activity in like a year, and like I said it appeared first after shaving down there. What could it be? What can I do the get it to go away?
