Lumps around vagina

Hi,
i shave my pubic area once or so every month. recently i have started getting lumps in this area. they are usually very painful and after a few days it drains itself out (usualy pus). could this be caused by shaving or wearing tight jeans? i sometimes have more than one at a time and they get to the size of a 20 cent coin and then fill up with pus and then drain...i now use dettol on them when i feel them forming...what causes this and how can i stop them?

This is probably ingrowing hairs that become infected.This is common if you shave. You could try using an exfoliating cream in this area.
