Folliculitis: if the bump is in an area where you shave, it is most likely an infected hair follicle, folliculitis. Try using a hot compress on the area to reduce the inflammation and it will go away with time. Taking Advil would help pain. Avoid shaving. consider getting tested for STDs. ...Read more

See your doctor: Painful blisters needs to be seen by your doctor to document location, size, and type of bumps/blisters. If needed, they can do a scrape biopsy to find out what it is. By itself, it's hard to determine, and you may be referred to a dermatologist who can pinpoint it right away and take care it. It's impossible to determine without seeing it in person, by your doctor first. ...Read more

I have a large painful (dime size) bump or boil on my penis. I've had similar bumps on my upper inner thighs what could this be? Its hard around the base but feels like it has fluid inside. Alcohol doesn't burn or irritate it and warm water makes it feel

It : It sounds as though you may have a bacterial skin infection with abscesses or "boils". These usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by staphylococcus aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by mrsa, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria. Next time you develop one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should go to your doctor before it "pops" so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat you appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If you ever develop fever, chills, or feels ill with this infection, call your doctor immediately. You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Your doctor may have other suggestions for prevention. Good luck! ...Read more
