Yeast/pimples: probably NOT. vaginal yeast infections are exactly that - vaginal. It sounds like you may have had two small infected hair follicles - folliculitis that have at least partially resolved (as this can) on their own. I would avoid trying to "pop" them and use moist heat or simply monitor the remaining one. ...Read more

I have weird bumps on my groin that dont go away, they been there for years, they dont itch?

Likely benign: Bumps on the scrotum you can appear under the skin & are benign. On the groin, my first thought is bumps caused by ingrown hair. You may also have skin tags (though these are more common for men over 50 years old in my experience). The cause is most likely benign. But if still concerned, visit a local STD clinic, since they can help & visits are often free. Hope that helps. ...Read more
