Needs evaluation: Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment. We need to see what it is you are referring to before any treatment options can be discussed. An Obgyn should be able to provide some direction after visualizing the area.
