    So I have two cysts on my balls that are kind of annoying me, and I'm wondering how I can get rid of them. Before anybody thinks the worst, these are not cancerous or related to any type of STD, and yes I know this because I was checked. I shave my balls and every so often I get these cysts that are kind of like pimples. I want to avoid a visit to the doctor, so anybody know how to get rid of these? I heard putting hot water on them with a paper towel can work, but so far nothing.

    That's called ingrown hairs. Pop them with a super-sharp needle, then use tweezers to pull out the hairs.

    It's painful, but alcohol helps. icon_biggrin.gif

    Ugh! That even sounds painful. I'm so glad I don't get these on my nutz.

    so they're not on your balls, they're on your sac. BIG difference.

    use whatever you'd use on a pimple: toothpaste, acne spot treatment, etc. this will dry them out

    I also heard warm water helps, but not sure how.

    Do you have to shave?

    TeaTree oil will help - but it won't feel wonderful - its a very good natural topical antiseptic...

    Well...you could not shave your balls. That would probably help get rid of the ingrown hairs...

    On the needle, tweezers and self-surgery site, not down your throat, that is.

    Make sure the needle is sterile! Don't go throwing an infection in there... Then you will have pus oozing out...

    The skin on the testes rivals as probably the most sensitive on the body.

    My bf gets them. They're a pain but he normally pops them...I don't really inquire about it. For obvious reasons. icon_confused.gif

    I guess you should wipe your sac with rubbing alcohol first before performing any "surgery" on yourself. And do that when you shave in the future.

    Have you googled scrotum cysts?

    The next time you shave your balls, take a dry anitpersperant (like the blue phoniex Axe, think bar not spray) and apply it lightly to the balls right after you shave.


    What's happening is called sterile abeceses. See also ingrown hairs. The hair is getting twisted back down below the skin and the sebascus glands are now feeding into a closed sack. This is becuase after you shaved the skin closed back over the opening for the hair shaft.

    Warm water helps because it softens both the skin and the hair. Allowing for easier removal and drainage and it just feels nice.
