I have two ingrown, infected hairs on my fanjo (tmi)

and since I'm 38 weeks pregnant, I can't see to get to them. DH noticed one about a month ago and I thought that if I left it alone it would go away, but today I went to the toilet and my pants were pretty soaking with blood (definitely from the hairs). I got DH to have another look and he says they're massive, raised, full of pus and black. shock

I was just wondering, do I need to see a doctor? I would love nothing more than to attack the fuckers with tweezers but since I can't see that's a bit difficult.

Now I can't get the picture of a flaming Fanjo out of my mind...like a Nike trainer but with flaps and hair...

HerrenaHarridan Thu 14-Nov-13 23:36:03

Please see your dr.

My best friend had a similar problem when the Doc removed the ingrown hair it was 30cms long (no that's is not a typo!) she was very ill and needed antibiotics.

Struggling on in pain is not big of clever. Pain is your body's way of saying "fuck you, you ignorant idiot, listen to me!"

Oh god oh god oh god envy

A flaming fanjo will be the least of her labour worries!!

Maybe you can ask the midwife to lance them if/when you need an episiostomy. You know, a 'while you're down there' sort of thing....

DaleyBump Thu 14-Nov-13 22:21:41

Okay okay, I'll see my GP. I still remember the shocked look on his face when I asked him for thrush cream, not looking forward to having him prod about my fanjo grin I think a flaming fanjo in labour is pretty much a given Secret grin

SecretWitch Thu 14-Nov-13 21:43:21

Honey, see your GP...

You do not want to be in labour with a flaming fanjo

envy Flossie

SecretWitch Thu 14-Nov-13 21:42:18

GAH! Could your husband not hold your belly up a bit so you could get a look at your Fanjo? Or maybe lie on your back holding a mirror above you, whilst clutching a torch for better viewing?

Or perhaps you better see your GP..

I would definitely go and get some antibiotics, not going to be great fun in labour and after if they flare up again?!

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Thu 14-Nov-13 21:30:19

the gift that keeps on giving. As someone said recently on another sporn thread. smile

DaleyBump Thu 14-Nov-13 21:11:37

I would show you all but I'd rather not have my fanjo plastered all over MN grin just got DH to have a look and apparently they're not as bad as last night so I think I'll just leave them be for now. Unfortunately, I now have a bloody cyst on the other side <grumble grumble>

Flossiechops Thu 14-Nov-13 18:59:38

I'm a nurse, i am excellent at squeezing and picking! You do need to go and see your GP as you may well need a course of antibiotics. Some of these get so bad they need surgically excising and draining shock

First rule of Sporn Club - photos grin

In a nice warm bath then a squeeze.

You're not in East Anglian are you? probably a bit too keen

WhoNickedMyName Thu 14-Nov-13 18:36:32

If they're at the point where they're leaking/bleeding then a warm flannel (as hot as you can stand it) held over the area, or a warm bath should draw them out.

mineofuselessinformation Thu 14-Nov-13 18:31:29

Go and see a nurse at the gp surgery! If they're really that sore, get them sorted. Believe me, they've seen it all before and will probably be very sympathetic.

Show us, show us, show us, show us!!

And it sounds like you need a nurse or able assistant btw.

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Thu 14-Nov-13 18:04:01

waxing-seriously? Is that so when she gives birth she can say "well that wasn't so bad"wink I doubt a waxer would do it though.
beautician or nurse if you won't consider a total stranger in the undergrowth.

MrsSpencerReid Thu 14-Nov-13 17:42:50

I would squeeze in the area, you'll prob be able to feel the 'head' and keep going!! Personally I would tweeze the hair out once it's released, surely dh/dp can do that?! Do you have a beautician? I think mine would be top of my list to assist should I be in this position and at 28w preg it's possible grin good luck

HollaAtMeBaby Thu 14-Nov-13 17:40:33

Feeling brave I mean!

HollaAtMeBaby Thu 14-Nov-13 17:40:02

Go to your practice nurse - or if you're feeling , go and get waxed; the hot wax might draw out the yuckiness.

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Thu 14-Nov-13 17:24:20

[excited] oooo he could use mobile phones in some way to film it so you can see, like on casualty. What about our old friend mag sulph to draw it out first? come on fellow sporners this woman needs our help dammit.

JoinTheDots Thu 14-Nov-13 17:12:23

lay on your back and get DH to hold the mirror? He can position an angle poise lamp for you too, and then you get all the fun!

hermioneweasley Thu 14-Nov-13 17:11:29

Well I'd you can't see there and your DH is useless, it's going to have to be a third party. There are many sporner MNetters who. 1). Won't care about your minge upkeep. 2) won't be remotely phased by seeing your fanjo.

DaleyBump Thu 14-Nov-13 17:10:33

I've tried, my huge belly overshadows everything so I just can't see. I don't even know how bad they are really but they're incredibly painful.

sunbathe Thu 14-Nov-13 17:05:45

What about a small mirror on a stand, positioned so you can see them?
