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.

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

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.

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
