Hi. Im a woman who has hairy nipples. If that is not bad enough, there is a big red pimple developing on it. Its quite painful and looks like there could be an ingrown hair inside. What can I do?

Dear Worried
Try to get the hair out with a tweezer and put Bactroban on. If you tweeze the hair often enough it will start growing out slower and thinner and eventually stop. Other option is electrolysis of the hair follicle.
