Itchy Bumps In The Pubic Hair Area

Many differing dx: If you shave or use hair removers, these could certainly lead to an itchy, inflammatory process in the pubic area. Contact dermatitis, or a sensitivity or allergy, could also do this. Yeast infections from sweating are yet another possibility. Then there are infectious, contagious processes like pubic lice and scabies that could be culprits. ...Read more
I get very bad red itchy bumps after shaving my pubic area which I believe is folliculitis. Should I just pluck the infected hair out?
Folliculitis: You are correct about the folliculitis. However, I don't recommend wasting your time plucking them out individually. If you are going to pluck them you might as well wax and save yourself time. There is no scientific benefit of shaving vs waxing for the removal of hair. Always monitor for infection. ...Read more

19 year old female, not sexually active. Noticed red itchy bumps in pubic area, they only go away if I shave. Regrowth of hair, itching & bumps reoccur?
I have a red, very itchy rash under my chest hair and in my pubic hair. Comes and goes, potentially seems stress related. Rash looks like speckles.
Ingrown Hair: Often an ingrown hair will go away on its own. If it doesn't go away, an ingrown hair can become infected, permanently darken the skin, or leave behind a scar, especially if you've been scratching or picking at it. If an ingrown hair is bothering you or has become infected, your doctor can make a small cut in your skin with a sterile needle or scalpel to release it or prescribe medicine. ...Read more
I have an itchy bump within my pubic hair. It is about half a centimetre large. It is hard and doesn't produce any puss. What could it be?
Cyst: It is probably a seborrheic (coming from oil glands) or epidermal inclusion cyst, both benign lesions. It is probably itchy because of surrounding dry skin. It doesn't sound like the worrisome things: cancer/infection. Both of these would likely have open or irregular surfaces, be draining, or be darkly pigmented. You can put some Aquaphor or Vaseline on it. Still questions? Have your doc check:) ...Read more

I have red itchy bumps on my pubic area im real worried but they don't seem to be an STD they look more like boils and there on my penis I just started using antibiotic cream and they dry out what should I do
It sounds like they are responding to the antibiotic cream, however that may not be enough. You are likely dealing with abscesses or boils. Did you recently shave? This is a common precursor to infection. Please visit your doctor because std'd still need to be ruled out. If it is bacterial your doctor may put you on oral antibiotics. It is always best to have a doctor examine you in these types of instances.
Good luck. ...Read more
