I have a bump on my scrotum-painless, looks like a pimple and is maybe a few mm wide. Could it be an ingrown hair, cyst, pimple, or something else?

Probably benign: A Painless pimple may need medical attention if it shows increase in size over a short period of time. You should check it once weekly, note its size to determine if it is getting bigger. If it is, that will be a signal to go see a doctor and have a medical examination. If it does not grow in size, then it can be left alone, yet watched for any change over one year before you can ignore it. ...Read more

My penis stings I have a small hot pink pimple on my scrotum its painless, and I have no burning sensation when I urinate is this herpes?

Herpes is....: It sure does not sound like herpes. Herpes out breaks look like a cluster of blisters that as they age become ulcerated raw skin.

Or even an std like chlamydia or gonorrhea. The two things are not usually related. ...Read more

I get an occasional pimple (white head) on my scrotum. What could this be from and what should I do abut them?

This particular type of cyst is located on the scrotum, which is the skin and tissue surrounding the testicles. If it grows large enough, the cyst may be seen with the naked eye as a lump protruding from the skin. ...Read more

I have a growth underneath my skin under my scrotum is it just a pimple to pop or is it cancer?

Not likely to: Be cancer. Don't pop it, but you can soak in warm water in a tub and use soap. The adjacency to your rectum, not the cleanest part of your body, makes "popping" a bad idea. See a doctor to make the call and do the dirty deed if needed. ...Read more

Watch and wait: You may watch the "bump" every couple of weeks. If the bump doubles in size, becomes irregular in size, shape or color, bleeds, ulcerates see a doctor.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Hello I have dry pimples on my scrotum which itches frequently. Suggest the way to get rid of it.

Pimples: A dry itchy rash on the scrotum may be due to tinea cruris, a fungal infection of the skin which can occur and may respond to a topical over the counter anti-fungal cream such as clotrimazole 1%. Please see a doctor ASAP to confirm your diagnosis and perhaps be tested for other causes. ...Read more

I have a small bump on my scrotum. It looks like ingrown hair or Pimple? I'm worry that it's std, but I'm a Virgin please help. Is it normal?

I have a small bump on my scrotum. It looks like ingrown hair or Pimple? I'm worry that it's std, but I'm a Virgin please help. Is it normal?

Nice observation...: You are right with what you observed and described because this bump most likely represents a hyperactive sebaceous gland of hair follicle, which is harmless & needs no active care unless having recurrent infection or other bothers. Of course, without a direct look at and feel on it, it is hard to offer perfect diagnosis. More? Seek evaluation.counseling timely. Best wish to health... ...Read more

Go see your doctor: Continue to take your Cephalexin antibiotic as directed. Then keep follow up appointment that's been arranged w/prescribing physician. Of course, if no follow up appointment was made, then make one now. Or ask to be seen tomorrow if symptoms worsen (in other words, don't wait). ...Read more

1 Dime size, no head pimple/blister between scrotum and anus. 2 weeks. Friction from tennis and sweat? Std!?

Sebaceous cyst?: An STD is a very unlikely cause of this sort of problem. More likely an inflamed (infected?) sebaceous cyst or something similar. See a doctor if it doesn't clear up in another week or so. Or sooner if it continues to enlarge, becomes sore, and ASAP if fever or spreading redness. (Your concern about STD suggests you may be at risk, so get tested to be safe. But not the cause of this problem.) ...Read more

Penis scrotum inner thigh red. Derm said not fungal. Gave me vytone kinda worked. I have eczema. No more vytone. What is this? No itch no sore 1 pimple

It may be jock itch: ...even if the Derm didn't find fungus on a slide or culture. Because the fungus can hide in the hair follicles, it may take longer than 10-14 days to get rid of it. If you still have symptoms, ask your Derm for a refill of Vytone. Fungi like heat & moisture, so keep the affected area clean and DRY, apply anti-fungal powder after bathing & wear cotton boxer shorts. Good luck! ...Read more

I am experiencing pimples, genital lump (penis or scrotum) and genital sores. I think it's just an ingrown hair.?

Folliculitis?: If the problem is limited to hair bearing areas (e.g. the pubic area, scrotum, etc), then probably you have folliculitis (infection of hair follicles, maybe ingrown hairs), especially if you have been shaving the area. If so, stop shaving, keep the area clean and dry, and see what happens. See a doctor if severe (painful, spreading redness, etc), or if no better in a few days. ...Read more

I have a whitehead on my scrotal sac that I popped but nothing came out, like it deflated almost... It is slightly swollen, which ointment do I use?

Neosporin: Neosporin is a good first step at protecting an open wound. Can also apply vaseline through the day if it stings. If area becomes very red and painful next few days see an MD to make sure not a staph infection. Tempting to pop lesions but really not a good idea. Always try hot soaks and layer of vaseline to soften skin and let it "pop" on it's own. ...Read more

Acne: Your diagnosis is likely to be correct and you may try the same over the counter remedies that are used for acne.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Sebaceous glands...: Without further specific info on these bumps, it is hard to give an accurate diagnosis.
