I have a few small bumps around my groin area, they have been there for two months. I feared HPV, Dr says it's jock itch. 2nd opinion needed. Painless?

Get seen: We can't give an opinion without seeing it, even if you send a photo. It may be common tinea cruris, candida, or erythrasma. Each is treated differently. Or it may be warts / HPV. If the bumps are stable, that's what I'm betting. ...Read more

Help me please! There are small, rock hard bump in my groin area?

Likely benign: Probably what we call an "inflammatory lymp node." Calmly see your local MD. It probably is a result of skin irritation or even a low grade fungal infection of the nails or skin of the foot or leg. ...Read more

I have a sore throat with small red itchy bumps in my groin area. What could it be? Are they related?

I have a sore throat with small red itchy bumps in my groin area. What could it be? Are they related?

Possible: Since viral infections can cause the sore throat and a skin rash, they may be related. On the other hand, I would expect a more generalized skin involvement when a viral infection is involved. If this has lasted for more than 10 days or been getting worse, see your doctor. ...Read more

7 days after protected sex and unprotected oral. I have a small red area where my leg & groin area meet. No bumps, is this from underwear or herpes???

7 days after protected sex and unprotected oral. I have a small red area where my leg & groin area meet. No bumps, is this from underwear or herpes???

Red area: Its more likely a skin yeast if its in this area. Herpes would have blisters showing up. In the middle of winter and during swimming season we see a fair amount of tinea (yeast) infections near the underwear line. Try some lotrimin (clotrimazole) and see if that helps. ...Read more

I have these small red patches with bumps in them all over my body. My stomach and lower back were really red and I also have bumps in my groin area.?

Body rash: Likely pityriasis roasea which will go away on own in 6-8 weeks or eczema/psoriasis, bacterial or fungal, tinea vesicolor or related to allergy- medications (if on any) or food -like celiac, can also be bites like scabies usually are linear pattern, rarely can be thyroid, or liver /kidney condition, autoimmune process.

I have a small red, slightly raised, bump at the bottom of my bum, toward my groin area. It is painless and itchless. The skin is not broken. Herpes?

I have a small red, slightly raised, bump at the bottom of my bum, toward my groin area. It is painless and itchless. The skin is not broken. Herpes?

Furuncle or 'pimple': This sounds like a small localized cutaneous abscess of the skin-we usually call these 'furuncles' or 'pimples' in common language. If it's still bothering you, I would show it to a doctor. They can drain it, if it is large enough, or help you with some antibiotic therapy. Staph infections are quite common in the groin- and I suspect that's what it is. Herpes, in contrast, is a blistery and HURTS! ...Read more

I have a lot of small and very few big bumps on my inner upper thigh closer to my groin area. Sometimes they contain pus. Is it just razor burn?

I have a lot of small and very few big bumps on my inner upper thigh closer to my groin area. Sometimes they contain pus. Is it just razor burn?

----Lust for pus----: If you shaved there, then yes, it could be. But razor burn that has become infected. If it doesn't go away in a few days after a few good scrubs with soap and washcloth then you will most likely need an antibiotic. It may be something else, but with infection comes pus so no matter what it is, it needs to be evaluated by a doctor. P.S.: After scrubbing, apply a thin layer of an antibiotic ointment ...Read more

See your doctor: With the combination of groin pain, sore throat, and a boil on the penis, it is important that you visit your physician to have yourself checked out. If you're sexually active, your physician will likely test you for a sexually transmitted disease. I recommend you see your local doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more

I have a small light purple bump on the inside of my leg right at the edge of my groin. It's about pea shaped. What do I do?

Skin lump: You'll need to see a doctor in person to get a diagnosis of this little lump, and to decide what to do for it. Maybe it'll go away on its own, but it might need to be removed in the office. For now, try some warm soaks, 20 minutes twice a day. If it gets larger, hurts, or turns red, see someone right away. ...Read more

I have had small clusters of red bumps forming on my wrists, inside arms, torso, and groin. They are not itchy. I also have Crohn's disease?

Red Bumps on Wrist: Even without doing anything different, it could still be an allergic reaction. Allergies can develop to things you've never been allergic to before...Basically your system gets overloaded. There's also the chance it could be some sort of bug bites...Maybe mites or something hiding in your home. There are also some skin conditions that cause itching and bumps...Like eczema. ...Read more

I have swollen lymph node on groin and small bumps on shaft of penis wich has black dot in centre, also had bumps on scrotum that burst and healing?

Here are some...: What you observed and described most likely represent hyperactive sebaceous glands on penile skin like pimples on face or elsewhere and the infected, burst, and healed sebaceous cysts, These bumps usually require no active care unless being mentally &/or physically bothersome. Of course, it is hard to give 100% right diagnosis without a direct look at them. More? Seek evaluation & counseling. ...Read more

Yeast infection plus burning, tingling in legs (no rash), two small pimple like bumps (1 near groin, 1 on butt) 1 on groin went away already. Related?

Yeast/pimples: Probably NOT. Vaginal yeast infections are exactly that - vaginal. It sounds like you may have had two small infected hair follicles - folliculitis that have at least partially resolved (as this can) on their own. I would avoid trying to "pop" them and use moist heat or simply monitor the remaining one. ...Read more

Groin pain for the last 2 weeks testical pain with front right thigh pain that's mild. Doc checked pulse in both legs said hernia small bump on leg. : (?

Work closely with...: Besides what have been discussed for someone st 47, it's worthwhile to think about possible DJD of hip or regional musculoskeletal or neuromuscular pain. And collectin the feature and degree of pain and other related symptoms with the detailed sequence of event, especially to watch if the pain and ache is position-physically related.

So, ask expert for detailing timely. ...Read more
