Patient

Q: I was at work today and I noticed over the course of my shift a slight pressure near my privates. I didn't think anything of it until I got home and then I could tell it was a pimple (or so I believe it is) I've had pimples down there before, this one is on the left side literally right by my butt hole and vaginal opening. I tried to pop it, I could feel it ready to burst but the pain wasn't good, so I sat in a hot bath, legs spread apart, and I think it helped but after I got out I still couldn't get it to pop. So I put some of my acne medicine on it prescribed from my doctor, and spread my legs to let it breath for a little while. I hope it isn't a boil, I've had one before but I'm not sure If this is a pimple or boil or neither
