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

Red pimple like bumps on my left inner thigh in crotch area. Painless and not itchy. If popped pus comes out. I have genital HSV 1. They won't go away?

Red pimple like bumps on my left inner thigh in crotch area. Painless and not itchy. If popped pus comes out. I have genital HSV 1. They won't go away?

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

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

I have 2 small red pimple like bumps on my genital area and I was wondering what they might be?

Many possibilities: Herpes is often a consideration for pimple-like genital lesions. However, a lot depends on details: Exact location? Evolution from red bump to blister to pimple or sore over a few days, like herpes. Unchanging bumps over 2+ days not herpes. Actual pimples, warts, and molluscum contagiosum may be possible. Sexual risks of course make a difference. Stop guessing and see a doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

I have white bumps near my genital area. They look like pimples but when I try to pop them they just don't. What might cause this?

Probably normal: At your age (18) you may just be seeing the normal development of your genital area skin, especially if the bumps are on the penis or scrotum. Sebaceous and sweat glands become more prominent with sexual maturity and typically appear as white bumps, more easily visible if the skin is stretched. If in doubt, bring it up with your doctor next time you're in the office for routine care. ...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

My boyfriend has itchy bumps on his hips, thighs and genital area. He takes 2 benadryl, (diphenhydramine) 4 Advil and b&e powder for his tooth ache. Allergic reaction maybe?

My boyfriend has itchy bumps on his hips, thighs and genital area. He takes 2 benadryl, (diphenhydramine) 4 Advil and b&e powder for his tooth ache. Allergic reaction maybe?

Yes, possibly: An allergy to advil (ibuprofen) can cause hives. If hives have another underlying cause then advil (ibuprofen) may exacerbate the underlying hive problem. Other possible causes of hives: 1. Allergies to pollens, mold, dust, food, drugs (like advil (ibuprofen)) and bee stings 2. Infections like hepatitis 3. Autoimmunity 4. Complement deficiency – acquired or hereditary 5. Vaculitis 6. Idiopathic – unknown cause. ...Read more
