Prescribed acanya for a hair follicle on scrotum. When applied I felt a mild pain in testicles. Is this normal.

Benzoyl peroxide: Acanya contains benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin. Neither one should canse pain in testes however it is most likely too harsh for the delicated scrotum skin and can cause irritation. Discuss that with your dermatologist. Scrotal skin can develop little white cysts in some men. There isn't very good treatment for this. If a particular cyst is causing problems, like pain or itch, it can be removed. ...Read more

I have several hair follicles filled with blood due to being connected to all blood vessels on my scrotum. Anything I should be concerned with?

Likely benign: It depends on how long you've had them and if you have anything similar on other parts of your body. Also would want to know if you have any bleeding disorders. But from your description, these sound like angiokeratomas of the scrotum, which are completely benign. I would recommend evaluation by a dermatologist for confirmation. ...Read more

I have a cyst in my lower rt pelvic area that my doc says is a gland/hair follicle. My WBC count is 11.1 and my liver enzymes ar raised. I'm worried.

But if that "cyst" in the groin is related to a lymph node then please be sure to review this with your healthcare provider as it is possible they are related. ...Read more

I would try an over the counter anti-fungal for a day or two unless it is worsening. Then one would need to be seen by a good medical provider. ...Read more

How does a "perm" affect my hair follicles?

It usually doesn't.: Perms are strong chemicals designed to change the physical characteristics of the hair shaft without damaging the follicle itself. It wouldn't make sense to cause damage to the hair-forming part, and most of these products have been extensively tested for safety. But they are cosmetics, not drugs, and allergic or hypersensitivity responses are possible. Try and see; otherwise, don't worry! ...Read more
