Sebaceous cyst?: Something like this usually turns out to be nothing serious at all, often a sebaceous cyst or something similar. No STD causes such things and neither does any other serious infection or cancer. See a doctor if it continues to enlarge, gets red or sore, or you otherwise are worried. In the meantime, hands off. Repeatedly feeling it or squeezing will cause increased pain and make diagnosis harder. ...Read more

Hi I have a couple of black tiny spots in groin. The skin is also quite discolored, since I started wearing tight clothes. Is there any way to reduce them?

Rash: Wearing tight clothes can cause pressure on some small blood vessels in the body. If these jeans are tight, they can cause dark spots to appear in the groin. I recommend loose fitting pants for the next 3 days, warm compress to dark spots for 10 minutes - twice a day & only Tylenol (acetaminophen) for the pain. Motrin or NSAIDs can make the spots worse. If the spots to not improve in 1 week, make appt. W/ Dr ...Read more

Difficult to know: Without seeing the eruption cannot tell whether this is candida (yeast) or a superficial dermatomycosis (skin rash like athlete's foot). If it is the latter ketoconazole will not be effective. See a good dermatologist. ...Read more

Hi, I am a 17 year old female, and for over a year have gotten these hard lumps under my skin in the groin area, they can be moved around?

Likely lymph nodes: The body has small collection stations that filter the serum. Areas. Those in the groin are often pea to peanut sized at rest, but enlarge if they are working to filter debris from bug bites, rashes, or other issues from their areas. If they are not painful and red, and go up and down in size over 3-4 weeks, they are normal. If one or several seem matted together, immobile, a doc should check them. ...Read more
