I believe I have sebaceous cysts on my scrotum. They are painless, hard white bumps, some about 3 or 4mm in diameter. Over the counter treatment?

Here are some...: Please do nothing with them as long as not bothering you mentally and physically since no OTC topical cream can rap them away. See doctor timely without "self-inflicting" for sebaceous cysts. Yours are not big and it is not uncommon to see sebaceous cysts grow to 5-30 mm. Best wishes... ...Read more

If: If the area is infected you will need antibiotics, and possibly a procedure called an I&D (incision and drainage). Otherwise, you could try warm compresses to the area three times a day, if it drains on its own, apply an antibacterial ointment to the area twice a day and monitor. If it does not improve see your doctor.
Good luck! ...Read more

How can I prevent large, painful bumps in genital area. I don't shave just use scissors to trim pubic hair. Every month I get at least two bumps.

Folliculitis.: This is an example of folliculitis. There are a couple of ways to treat this--topicals such as topical antibiotics or topical corticosteroids. However, a more definitive treatment for this pesky condition would be to have laser hair removal. Even a couple of treatments would reduce the hair diameter enough to likely prevent these large painful foci of inflammation at the site of the hair follicle. ...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, likely 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

What to do if I am starting to get weird bumps all around my genital area could this be herpes or warts?

Doubt herpes, see MD: Herpes lesions: red bump to blister to open sore to scab to healing over 1-2 weeks; bumps with no change after 1-2 days cannot be herpes. Genital warts can last weeks or months with no change in appearance. If rapidly appearing, maybe molluscum contagiosum, but MC rare beyond age 25. If red and inflamed in the pubic area, maybe folliculitis, especially if you shave the area. Stop guessing, see MD. ...Read more

Is it mandatory for a female to shave in their genital area? Or is it ok to go without shaking to prevent bumps?

No need to shave: There is absolutely nothing wrong with pubic hair. It's just hair. Perfectly good hygiene can be achieved by properly rinsing in all the skin folds that girls and women have, hair or no hair. For some unknown reason, so many cultures across the globe have issues with pubic hair. It's just hair. Shaving it is fine too (but takes continuing work, and it can be itchy as it grows back out). ...Read more
