Possible infection: He probably has an irritation or infection. He should see his doctor before you have more activity. You could both then have a problem.

Question diagnosis: Did you diagnose yourself or did a doctor make the diagnosis? In any case, it is time to consult a doctor as it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you.

See a dermatologist: Without being able to see and examine these the best approach would be to have a doctor examine these and prescribe treatment.

I have a small patch on my scrotum size of a quarter of red raised bumps with little scabs on top. I think it may be jock because I'm a swimmer?

Possible: No way to know for sure without a physical exam and inspection of the area though. Especially rashes are generally impossible to diagnose purely over the computer. Certainly sounds like it may be fungal though, but get an evaluation to be sure of the proper diagnosis and treatment. Good luck.

Possibly Foliculitis: It sounds like it might be just some foliculitis. You could try to wash the area with some antibacterial soap everyday. But since it is coming back, I might try some topical clindamycin twice a day for about two weeks.

I have itchy red bumps on both forearms they itch and have small white tips and scabs on them and are slowly spreading could this be scabies?

Possible but: White tip is unusual for scabies unless the lesions got infected from scratching. Scabies usually affects the other parts of the body before getting to the forearms. See your doctor.

Folliculitis: You may have a condition called folliculitis.Folliculitis starts when hair follicles are damaged by friction from clothing, blockage of the follicle, or shaving. In most cases of folliculitis, the damaged follicles are then infected with the bacteria staphylococcus (staph). Since I cannot see your skin, I would recommend you visit your local dermatologist to make sure of the diagnosis.

Red itchy bumps: You may have some other infection e.g. a yeast infection and or possibly a scabies or pubic lice infestation. You need to be checked for these problems, especially if you are having a pubic lice problem or scabies that tend to burrow into the skin around these areas.

SEE YOUR DOCTOR: Either you are having some kind or allergic reaction to the medicine or you are developing a low immune system making you vulnerable for a skin staph infection either way you need to see your doctor for proper evaluation and treatment good luck

Have them seen...: Rashes are very difficult to diagnosis simply based on a description. Rashes need to be seen (and often felt) - schedule and appointment with your physician for an exam so that an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan (if needed) can be made. Take care.

I have tiny red bumps near my vagina that seem to multiply but they never scab up. They started out looking like ingrown hairs, could it be herpes?

I have tiny red bumps near my vagina that seem to multiply but they never scab up. They started out looking like ingrown hairs, could it be herpes?

Rash in the privates: Herpes typically is a painful rash that will occur and recur in the same area -typically when you are under stress. There are other possibilities besides herpes (which I don't think this is!)-such as folliculitis (ingrown hairs), allergic dermatitis, fungal rashes, other infections or rare disorders. Best to show this to an ID doctor or your primary who will know how to treat this. Hope this helps
