What can I do to help the bumps in my pubic area go away?

What can I do to help the bumps in my pubic area go away?

Stop shaving, 4 now: Razor-bumps result from shaving/cutting the hair too short, thus causing the hair to get stuck under the skin causing the bumps. Basically these are trapped hair follicles. Use of some exfoliating skin lotion/cream may help the trapped hair to come through to surface and thus resolve the bumps. So, stop shaving too closely will reduce this. Laser/electrolysis is expensive, but no bumps! Good luck. ...Read more

Bumps in my pubic area, they hurt when I press them and a lottle of white stuff comes out of it, they are pretty big. Help please?

Folliculitis?: This is obviously some sort of bacterial infection in the skin, like folliculitis becoming boils, maybe due to staph or strep. This is a lot more common recently when many young people shave the pubic area. Since they are painful and large, you should see a doctor; you might need an antibiotic. In the meantime, no shaving for a while. Don't worry about STDs, which don't behave this way. ...Read more

I have 3 bumps in my pubic area and I squeezed one and puss came out I'm scared do you know what it is?

Folliculitis: You probably have inflammation (due to bacterial infection) of some hair follicles and with them some sweat glands (folliciltis/hidradenitis). This may happen sometimes, especially if you shave this area and you injure the skin in the process. Try applying an antibiotic cream or a mixture of an antibiotic cream and a hydrocortisone cream a few times; if no healing, see your dr. ...Read more

I have these bumps around my pubic area. They aren't shave bumps, rather new and I don't know what they're from.

Bumps: If you shave pubis may be from ingrown hairs. Like pseudofolliculitis berberi if red or inflammed may be folliculitis that needs antibitoics. Would avoid shaving for 1-2 weeks, wash 2 x a day, try mupirocin topical. May be skin tags, cysts or warts. F/u w/ derm

YOU HAVE RAZOR BURNS: You need to let these heal completely before you shave again. You can use a mild exfoliative contailind salicylic acid available over the counter.
Be careful shaving again, use a sharp razor and shave in the direction of hair and not zigzag, up and down is the way to go. ...Read more

I am 23 year old male. I have molluscum bumps on pubic area and I just want to know if conzerol or zymaderm work to resolve this bumps?

I am 23 year old male. I have molluscum bumps on pubic area and I just want to know if conzerol or zymaderm work to resolve this bumps?

Very doubtful...: In my 40 years in the STD business, I've never heard of either of these products. Quick online search is not promising: Conzerol contains "herbal ingredients" and Zymaderm is advertised as a "homeopathic" product. Neither website has any evidence that they work except patient testimonials, which are notoriously unreliable. See a health professional to confirm the diagnosis and proper treatment. ...Read more

Growths in pubic area. I keep getting painful bumps in my pubic area that look like boils but not as big? In about the last 6 or so months I have been feeling random pain in my pubic area. Only to look and see a little bump that looks almost like a little

Hi.: Hi. I cannot diagnose your bumps. You described them as being rather small. Pimples and pustules in the pubic area can sometimes be folliculitis. The hair follicles can become infected. The infected follicles can be tender and swollen. Friction of your clothes may be contributing to this. If you shave your pubic area that can also be a cause. Think about using warm moist compresses on the area. Possibly, wear some clothes that are not tight and binding in that area. If they don't resolve, ask your parents to take you to see your doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more

I have these razor bumps on my pubic area don't know if I should be concerned about it?

Less often and close: Razor bumps are common. They are not dangerous but are a nuisance. I have heard many recommendations; here are mine culled from my 32 years as a doctor:
Avoid close shaves- use electric foil razor or new twin-blade with foam.
Avoid frequent shaves- wait as long as you can.
Only move the razor ONCE over each skin area.

Needs to be seen.: There are multiple things it could be, from eczema (an allergic condition) to scabies (bugs in the skin), to folliculitis (infected hair roots) to many other things that can cause bumps. Rashes can not be reliably diagnosed without being seen. Go to your pediatrician or a dermatologist. A rash that's bothering your child deserves care. ...Read more
