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?

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.

Red bump on pubic area and not painful. Noticed it and red rash on chest and shoulder for a week that's itchy. What could it be? Please help?

See your doctor: Red bumps on your pubic area need to be seen by a physician because they usually need treatment. Red itchy rashes are also important to treat. They can range from infections which are also contagious such as strep or herpes to skin conditions such as allergies and eczema. Please do not delay getting a diagnosis and proper treatment.

Hi, I've been getting these red bumps in my pubic area that I can pop which grow usually a few days after I shave. How do I get rid of them?

Don't shave: Use a depiliatory cream or other method--sounds like razor folliculitis--from small skin damages by razor. Could try using a better lubricating/moisturizing shaving cream w/razor.

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.

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.

Irritation?: May be just skin irritation or infection of the skin hair follicles. Keep clean and moisturize, monitor the progression. If getting worse or concerned, then see your doctor.

Possibly pubic lice?: These insects (phtirus pubis)can be picked up if you sleep on an infected bed/linen. You should see a physician when the hair has grown and you actually have the symptoms.
