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, like 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!

I have white bumps near my genital area. They look like pimples but when I try to pop them they just don't. What might cause this?

I have white bumps near my genital area. They look like pimples but when I try to pop them they just don't. What might cause this?

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. Sebaceous and sweat glands become more prominent with sexual maturity and typically appear as white bumps, more easily visible if the skin is stretched. If in doubt, bring it up with your doctor next time you're in the office for routine care.

Genital pimples: Pimple-like spots in the genital area could actually be pimples or folliculitis, bacterial infection of hair follicles. They could also be molluscum, a viral infection, common in genital area, as well as other infections. Please see your dermatologist for a more definitive diagnosis and treatment.

I have little bumps around my genital area. Can you describe the differences between herpes and razor burn?  The bumps are small like pimples.

See doctor: Herpes typically starts as a blister that then turns into an ulcer/sore and is painful. Genital warts can appear like small bumps, as can molluscum. Razor burn can also appear like small bumps. You need a physical exam to determine what these bumps are.

Can you get pimples on your genital area?

Sure: 'pimples' in the genital area are generally not related to acne. Usually they represent a blocked sweat duct. Risks include poor hygiene, unclean underwear and shaving the hair. Stis, especially herpes, can be the cause. Larger 'pimples' could represent a sebaceous cyst. Women can develop bartholin's or skene's cysts. Rare autoimmune dx's present with genital bumps, hidradenits suppurativa.

Razor burn: What you have goes by many names, including razor burn, folliculitis barbae, pseudofolliculitis barbae, shaving rash, razor bumps. It is not uncommon and it is not serious. Is it still there? If so, applying some otc antibiotic ointment may help it resolve.

Is it normal for an 18 year old male to get occasional pimples in his genital area?

Is it normal for an 18 year old male to get occasional pimples in his genital area?

Yes: The hair follicles in the genital area can become pimples at all ages. It is quite normal. The sweat glands associated with the hair follicles have bacteria that cause white blood cells to invade the area and cause pimples. Good hygiene down there can help prevent pimple formation, such as cleaning with soap. Best of health to you

I have little lumps around my genital area a bit like pimples what is it really and what can I do to help get rid of them im male too?

Tough to say: Rashes and generally skin conditions such as "pimple like bumps" can not be diagnosed over the computer and a Clinical examination really needs to take place to properly diagnose you. There are too many possible things they could be, so see the Doc and get a good Exam to get the proper diagnoses so the right Treatment can start, best wishes.

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?

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: Any of several skin conditions could cause this. Although people often assume insect bites, it's an uncommon cause. But I do wonder about scabies, or perhaps pubic lice (crabs). Or folliculitis, i.e. hair follicle inflammation, especially if you shave the area. No STD is a likely cause. See a doctor or clinic if more spots keep appearing or if not clearing up in a few days. Good luck!

Red pimple like bumps on my left inner thigh in crotch area. Painless and not itchy. If popped pus comes out. I have genital HSV 1. They won't go away?

Red pimple like bumps on my left inner thigh in crotch area. Painless and not itchy. If popped pus comes out. I have genital HSV 1. They won't go away?

Folliculitis?: This sounds most like folliculitis, or some other bacteria infection. Almost certainly not herpes -- both the symptoms (pus if popped) and location are wrong. And I'll bet this doesn't look much like your previous genital herpes outbreak (s), right? Anyway, see a doctor and take it from there. Good luck.
