weird body stuff Anonymous 7888
>what's the weirdest/grossest body thing that ever happened to you?
i might regret asking this but i just had a weird body thing happen and need to feel less alone.
i've had a bump in my armpit for YEARS. over 10 years. Last week it got inflamed and weird. i treated it with hot compresses, neosporin, and hydrocolloid bandaids to draw the gunk out. it calmed down and i thought that was that. but today i looked at it again and it looked black. i freaked out, but then realized that the black was…hair. i had like the world's longest coil of ingrown armpit hair. that must've been growing all the years?? wtf.
Whoa, that's really weird and kinda cool. Sorry I don't have any weird stuff to share, I just wanted to say that. Actually my bones skip and pop a lot (even my collarbone) but that's not really what you were asking right
I have acne and that's just constant grossness.
Nothing outstanding though. Your story is astonishing.
please try putting a solution of aspirin in water on your face, I know I'm in no place to tell strangers what to do but it really worked for me, I had very painful acne and now I have nothing. I posted about it in another thread, I just want to tell everyone to try because I know how much it hurts and how horrible it feels to look in the mirror.
Is that gross? I love things like ingrown hairs, it's so satisfying when you pull it out.
One time I ended up getting some sort of really weird sores all over my back. They were red and infected with a sort of transparent yellow liquid, like really big cold sores. I had them for months and they left marks for some time. Turns out I was having a reaction to expired chocolate powder I was eating.
I had a huge under the skin cyst on my left shoulder, where my bra strap would rest. I would notice it on occasion but I never bothered with it. Until one day my boyfriend pointed out how big its gotten. It was definitely close to a inch an a half across in diameter. I took a razor and cut it. Then puss just ozed out. I regretted it, it smelled so bad. Took me a few days to drain it and left a pretty deep scar.
The worst part was that it was satisfying to squeeze it all out.
I do love getting out ingrown hairs, but usually I've just dealt with little circle ones under the skin on my legs. This one was like a mega ingrown the likes of which I'd never seen.
ah yikes, how did you cut it? didn't it hurt so badly?
I used a regular razor. It did hurt, I don't recall the pain being inhibiting. It wasn't very deep into the skin to start getting it oozing. I think the worst part was when I tried to squeeze it, it tore open more. The pain was mostly from the more I messed with it the more sensitive it got
So use my dumbass as a cautionary tale, just go to a doctor, if in a similar position.
I actually started using salicylic acid recently and it's working like a charm! Along with the rest of my routine/some dietary restrictions, I'm slowly clearing up.
But thanks anyway, anon. It's sweet that you want to help fellow pizza-chans.
I'm so sorry but I keked hard when I read the last sentence. Do you have scars? I hope not
I remember that some time ago when I was around 13 or 14 and started to shave, I tried shaving my pubes. You can guess that it didn't go very well. A couple of days passed and I noticed a little bump that went reddish and then it looked like some puss was gathering. Stupid me just ignored it lmao. Another couple of days passed and it started to hurt so I decided to take care of it. I tried to pop it like a regular pimple. Puss got out, noticed something dark inside. Tried to get it out and it turned out it was a longass ingrown hair lmao. It was so gross and curly for some reason.
A kinda similar story to OP's
why not just buy a salicylic acid product? like paulas choice or that clean and clear dual moisturizer that many swear by ($5)
that is, if the acne is even caused by oily skin and clogged pores. some people have scurbbed/burned off the skin's moisture barrier
also my gross story is similar to OP. i used to shave my pubes every day as a teen and stopped. but a few months ago i noticed a black dot on my pubic mound, and i squeezed it, expecting an ingrown hair. instead, a blackhead the size of a corn kernel came out. i was traumatized but also immensely satisfied that it came out in one chunk like that
I've had a cyst on my butt since childhood and one of these days I'm going to get it removed just to satisfy my curiosity. I talked to a doctor about it and she said as long as it wasn't hurting (it never has, not in 20 years) there was no point in removing it besides aesthetics. The recovery period for this kind of stuff is kind of long and I'm a gym rat who doesn't want to lay off of it for a month or whatever.
I've dealt with long-lived armpit ingrowns before but never on the scale of YEARS. That's very impressive Anon, thank you for sharing.
>>8042>lay off of it for a month or whatever
I'm back home now and furious I didn't know the gym (and EVERYTHING) would be closed. This would have been the perfect time to get a chunk cut out of my ass fuuuuuck
I had a bump on the underside of my boob. Didtn't really think about it much, but eventually a coil of hair like you described broke thru and it was bloody and had a scar for a bit.
Hemorrhoids. The kind that you can shove back into your anus with your finger temporarily to spare some shame when ya mans hitting it from the back
Ganglion cyst, it's so fucking annoying but it technically doesn't hurt/impede movement so it's just unsightly and I can't get it removed unless by a plastic surgeon.
I have a small anal skin tag. I used to not really care about it, even though I knew whoever was my partner would see it. My ex called it my little "tail" and it really wasn't a big deal. The current guy I'm with fucked that up. He straight up asked me if it was a tumor and laughed at it and I've felt disgusting since. I can't see any part of my partner as gross, just unique or interesting at worst, so it really affected how I viewed the balance within the relationship. I just want to feel accepted by my partner. I really didn't think a stupid skin tag was anything to freak out about, but I'm wrong.

You're not wrong and your partner's reaction was very immature. How would he feel if you made him feel ashamed and insecure about every small detail of himself?
Ugh, I have one on one of my wrists. So annoying. I push on it sometimes even though the sensation grosses me out.
