If it gets too advanced it could become a real problem that's hard to get rid of and at that point it would be called :hidradenitis suppuritiva" which means a recalcitrant infection of the armpit(s). Best to get it looked at and treated right away. It's not likely to go away on its own and that big lump is a sign of that. ...Read more

Inverse Psoriasis?: I recently have biopsied a patient who i thought had herpes (he was hsv2 +), however the biopsy came back as psoriasis- it's rare on the penis, but it happens. Other possibilities include a drug eruption, yeast infection/candidiasis, zoon's balanitis or hpv (genital warts).

Well 1st things 1st: Red bumps could describe at least 20 different common problems so without a picture and some additional detail about the bumps and events surrounding their appearance, I can't give you a useful answer. So this is what I suggest, if you have them now, take a picture and call HealthTap prime. Or see your primary care doctor. Then after you have a diagnosis, a treatment can be recommended. Be well! ...Read more
