Question:

I have this red puss-filled cyst-type thing in my pubic region and it doesn't itch, but it does get sore. I tried poping it, but it didn't work that well. How do I get rid of it?

This pus filled cyst could be an abscess or folliculitis. I suggest going to your local physician to have it incised and drained under aseptic precautions.
