I noticed red bumps near pubic area yesterday. Itchy but no blistering. Not as red today but slightly uncomfortable. Haven't shaved in a week. STD?

STD is unlikely: Both the location and nature of this problem suggest follicilitis (hair follicle inflammation) despite the time since last shaving. Herpes and other STDs are unlikely. But see your doctor if you remain concerned, or if a sex partner has herpes or other known STD. ...Read more

I've noticead red bumps around my pubic area. I was told its folliculitis. I've been on steroid cream for three days and see no improvement.

Folliculitis: Steroid cream is an unusual treatment for folliculitis, although might be helpful if given along with an antibiotic ointment or pills. If this is self treated, stop the steroid and see your doctor. If prescribed by a doctor, call the office for clarification and ask whether you might also need an antibiotic. The most important thing may be to stop shaving the area. ...Read more

My boyfriend and I decided to use some lube, and afterwards, I got red bumps/blisters on pubic area. Been tested and was clean. Allergic reaction?

My boyfriend and I decided to use some lube, and afterwards, I got red bumps/blisters on pubic area. Been tested and was clean. Allergic reaction?

Probably: If infection testing was comprehensive and all negative, an allergic reaction is likely. You might want to go with an entirely different brand, and maybe a different type (water based if you used silicone and vice versa.) stay away from scents/favors/sensation enhancers for now. ...Read more

Many possibilities: There are several possibilities here. You may have warts (condyloma), molluscum contagiosum, folliculitis, or ingrown hairs. I suggest you have these bumps evaluated by your a physician as they may be infectious and may require either a procedure or a prescription medication. All of the above can be exacerbated by shaving. ...Read more

I have red itchy bumps on my pubic area im real worried but they don't seem to be an STD they look more like boils and there on my penis I just started using antibiotic cream and they dry out what should I do

I have red itchy bumps on my pubic area im real worried but they don't seem to be an STD they look more like boils and there on my penis I just started using antibiotic cream and they dry out what should I do

It: It sounds like they are responding to the antibiotic cream, however that may not be enough. You are likely dealing with abscesses or boils. Did you recently shave? This is a common precursor to infection. Please visit your doctor because std'd still need to be ruled out. If it is bacterial your doctor may put you on oral antibiotics. It is always best to have a doctor examine you in these types of instances.
Good luck. ...Read more

Folliculitis: U most likely have either ingrown hairs or infection in the hair follicles secondary to shaving too closely or from scissors or clippers that weren't sterile. If there are just a few small spots, they usually clear with warm compresses, but see a doctor if they are painful, large, and multiple. You may need antibiotics. ...Read more

I get very bad red itchy bumps after shaving my pubic area which I believe is folliculitis. Should I just pluck the infected hair out?

I get very bad red itchy bumps after shaving my pubic area which I believe is folliculitis. Should I just pluck the infected hair out?

Folliculitis: You are correct about the folliculitis. However, I don't recommend wasting your time plucking them out individually. If you are going to pluck them you might as well wax and save yourself time. There is no scientific benefit of shaving vs waxing for the removal of hair. Always monitor for infection. ...Read more
