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 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.
