He : He may be dealing with a fungal infection aka jock itch (tinea cruris). An over the counter anti-fungal cream like Clotrimazole should help if this is in fact the problem. On the other hand, if the small red bump persists, or is very painful there may be something else going on like a genital wart, herpetic lesion, or bacterial infection (abscess). I suggest he try the Clotrimazole first, and if that does not work see a doctor. Best of luck and happy new year.

See dermatologists: Many reasons why people have that. It maybe look like pimple and it's not. Penis would never develop "pimples". Herpes, genital warts, yeast infection, bacterial infection, lichen planus, psoriasis, etc. All could have the picture of "pimple".
