Many possibilities: 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. Yeast and herpes can both cause these symptoms. A doctor should be able to tell the difference by looking. If not testing can be done
