Itchy Pimple Like Bumps On Genital Area
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: 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.

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.

If in doubt, bring it up with your doctor next time you're in the office for routine care. ...Read more
