I have boil type bumps on my scrotum filled with blood and they come and go and pop and hurt?

See below: Boils are caused by bacteria, usually Staphylococcus aureus, that often normally reside on and colonize the skin. When the bacteria enter a break in the skin or travel down a hair follicle, a boil occurs. Good hygiene; avoiding shaving and chafing of the scrotum, wearing clean and breathable underwear to minimize moisture and heat, and use of an antibacterial soap can all be preventative. Read more

Question husband diagnosed with an boil or abcest on scrotum has drainage it has stopped after five days but still hard lump is this normal?

Question husband diagnosed with an boil or abcest on scrotum has drainage it has stopped after five days but still hard lump is this normal?

No. If it all drained it may clear. It may also resume if all the material did not drain. Keep the area clean but if it worsens u may need antibiotics. Read more

I got a boil on my scrotum and I think it's from a ingrown hair since I just shaved down there. Any thing I can get from the store to help?

Antibiotics?: You'll probably need antibiotics and depending on the size of the boil possibly an incision and drainage. Don't wait to get help, sometimes these can spread "down there" very fast and be life threatening....especially if you are a diabetic. Go see your doctor and you'll be OK. Read more

Red boil-like sore on scrotum. Isn't hurting but it feels irritating. It doesn't feel itchy. Little yellow top. Area around is firm/hard and swollen?

See below: Probable early onset of a boil/furuncle/abscess usually related to an infected hair follicle or sebaceous cyst of the scrotum. At home treatment includes keeping scrotum clean and warm moist compresses to help it either resolve or "come to a head." Manually "squeezing" the boil potentially more harmful than helpful. If worsens, see MD for possible antibiotics and/or incision and drainage. Read more
