Folliculitis: Sounds like you have folliculitis, which is an infection of one or more of the pockets from which hair grows (follicles). Usually, these are caused by a bacteria or fungus and can be treated at home with good hygiene. However, I strongly advise you to SEE A DOCTOR for a full evaluation and treatment, as many seemingly simple ailments can turn out to be a more serious condition, such as STIs. ...Read more

Ingrown hair?: It's possible it's an ingrown hair, especially if you shave down there at all, but even if you don't it could be. It could also theoretically be a small cyst. Both can be painful. I would suggest you have your doctor take a look at it for a more formal diagnosis and that way you'll be able to have a proper treatment plan to get rid of it. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

I had one red bump with pus that was hard and i had to pull to get out. Near genital area? Should i be conxerned. Gone now. Not sexually active.

See your doctor: If bumps reoccur, you may want to see your doctor. Often times, these bumps are normal and could be a result of blocked hair follicle. You may want to monitor when they appear, for instance, if they occur around the time you shave. If they persist and instead become bigger, red, and painful, they could be infected and require treatment. Your doctor can rule out other causes as well. ...Read more

Hard pointy bump on entrance of urethra of bf's penis. I felt it during oral sex. Is it a genital wart? He told me he was clean but doubtful.

Hard pointy bump on entrance of urethra of bf's penis. I felt it during oral sex. Is it a genital wart? He told me he was clean but doubtful.

Genital wart?: Your suspicion seems legitimate; a gential wart sounds like a good bet. Encourage your partner to get examined professionally. In the meantime, don't panic. Genital warts are an inconvenience, but rarely a serious health threat, either for affected persons or their sex partners. But speak with your doctor about HPV vaccine, if you haven't previously been immunized. ...Read more

Could i cure it myself? I have a small pus-filled bump on my genital area.. Sometimes it swells up and is very painful and it is hard for me to move. I had a dr look at it and he told me it was an ingrown hair. I researched ingrown hairs and that is not

If : If the area is infected you will need antibiotics, and possibly a procedure called an I&D (incision and drainage). Otherwise, you could try warm compresses to the area three times a day, if it drains on its own, apply an antibacterial ointment to the area twice a day and monitor. If it does not improve see your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a red bump/lump hard and hurting when touched on my lower abdomen below belly buttom above penis by 3 inches, could this be genital herpes?

I have a red bump/lump hard and hurting when touched on my lower abdomen below belly buttom above penis by 3 inches, could this be genital herpes?

Lump in groin: Not likely to be herpes. Based on location it's more likely to be an infected hair follicle or an infected sebaceous cyst. If it doesn't drain with warm compress you should see a physician to lance it and treat you with antibiotics. Herpes usually appears as a cluster of small painful lesions on the genitalia. These vesicles usually drain and form a consolidated lesion with crust on top. ...Read more

I have a bump near my genital sac and there is a bump should i be worried and can i pop it?

Bump on scrotum: Does it feel like its near the surface? If so - sounds like a small sebaceous cyst. I would try warm compresses - and see whether it resolves on its own - if its small you can certainly try squeezing it - if its red and tender and large you may need some antibiotics. I would try the moist heat first and take it from there. Good Luck ...Read more

I had bumps that formed near my genitals that formed a dark center and eventually shrunk in height and turned all black (or purple). The pain is bad.

Herpes zoster?: Need more details, but sounds consistent with herpes zoster (shingles). This is more likely if the rash is strictly one sided, i.e. few if any bumps on other side of body midline; if initial bumps were red then blister-like before turning dark; and if happening in a few days. Shingles needs prompt Rx to prevent long term pain, so see MD ASAP, urgent care today if your doc isn't available. Gd luck! ...Read more

No but HPV does: Human Papilloma Virus is an STD that causes genital warts which are usually tiny (1-3mm) skin colored bumps. This virus leads to cervical cancer in women which is why there has been a big push to vaccinate teenage girls with the HPV vaccine.
