Very big red bump in groin area. There is no head (like a pimple) been there for a week. What could it be and what should I do?

Very big red bump in groin area. There is no head (like a pimple) been there for a week. What could it be and what should I do?

Cyst: Assuming the bump is painful, it is likely a cyst which is a fluid filled bump below the skin. It could also be an early abcess, which is an infected collection of pus below the skin, like a pimple but more painful and larger. Either can be a consequence of shaving in the genital region. Don't squeeze or pop it! I recommend seeing your doctor asap to see if it needs to be drained. ...Read more

7 days after protected sex and unprotected oral. I have a small red area where my leg & groin area meet. No bumps, is this from underwear or herpes???

Red area: Its more likely a skin yeast if its in this area. Herpes would have blisters showing up. In the middle of winter and during swimming season we see a fair amount of tinea (yeast) infections near the underwear line. Try some lotrimin (clotrimazole) and see if that helps. ...Read more

I had protected sex (condom) and unprotected oral 8 days ago. Now I noticed a red area between my leg and groin. No bumps just red. Herpes?

Probably not herpes: Herpes doesn't behave like this -- both the type of rash and location are wrong. This sounds more like jock itch or a superficial bacterial infection, or just irritation from sweat, body secretions, etc. See a doctor if it doesn't clear up or you remain concerned, but I'm sure this is no STD or any other infection from the recent sexual exposure. ...Read more

I have a small red, slightly raised, bump at the bottom of my bum, toward my groin area. It is painless and itchless. The skin is not broken. Herpes?

Furuncle or 'pimple': This sounds like a small localized cutaneous abscess of the skin-we usually call these 'furuncles' or 'pimples' in common language. If it's still bothering you, I would show it to a doctor. They can drain it, if it is large enough, or help you with some antibiotic therapy. Staph infections are quite common in the groin- and I suspect that's what it is. Herpes, in contrast, is a blistery and HURTS! ...Read more

What would cause a rash in hotspot areas, purple and red bumps on legs and on groin?

Bumpy rashes on legs: Rashes can be difficult to diagnosis, even by a skilled dermatologist looking at the rash in person. With just a description I cannot answer your question. There are many causes of rashes in these areas, such as a contact allergy, irritation, chafing, fungus, scabies, etc. I recommend you make an appointment with a board certified dermatologist so she/he can examine you and make a diagnosis. ...Read more
