Folliculitis?: This sounds most like folliculitis, or some other bacteria infection. Almost certainly not herpes -- both the symptoms (pus if popped) and location are wrong. And I'll bet this doesn't look much like your previous genital herpes outbreak(s), right? Anyway, see a doctor and take it from there. Good luck. ...Read more

I have recently seen some bites on my upper thigh and even a couple on my genital area and they look like small pimples and itchy with redness?

I have recently seen some bites on my upper thigh and even a couple on my genital area and they look like small pimples and itchy with redness?

Many possibilities: Any of several skin conditions could cause this. Although people often assume insect bites, it's an uncommon cause. But I do wonder about scabies, or perhaps pubic lice (crabs). Or folliculitis, i.e. hair follicle inflammation, especially if you shave the area. No STD is a likely cause. See a doctor or clinic if more spots keep appearing or if not clearing up in a few days. Good luck! ...Read more

Shaving problems: Shaving with a dull razor or shaving without lubricant can cause the base of the hairs to get pulled slightly out of the shaft, causing redness, irritation, pustules and ingrown hairs. Using hypoallergenic soaps or shave creams and applying moisturizers after shaving (replace razors regularly) can help reduce this. ...Read more

Genital pimples: Pimple-like spots in the genital area could actually be pimples or folliculitis, bacterial infection of hair follicles. They could also be molluscum, a viral infection, common in genital area, as well as other infections. Please see your dermatologist for a more definitive diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

I have itchy red bumps on my genital area what could they be?

Many possibilities: Rashes are quite hard to describe and diagnose in words. A primary care, dermatologist, urologist, or ob-gyn doctor will have to look at a genitals rash in order to tell what it is. If an eczema or allergic rash, Hydrocortisone cream helps. If fungal, an antifungal cream is needed. If bacterial, antibiotic pills or cream is needed. If warts or some other infection, special treatments are needed. ...Read more
