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

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

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?

Bum bump: doubtful but possible. Herpes usually will be more than a solitary bump and many times is painful and irritating. Sounds more like a folliculitis or ingrown hair. Would try warm compresses for a week or two and see if resolves. If not get it checked especially if it worsens. ...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???

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 and see if that helps. ...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

I have a rash in my groin area. It's very itchy and has all these small bumps in and around it. I tried anti fungal cream with no success. What is it?

Jock itch?: Groins usually sweat and can get tinea cruris (jock itch). Since this could be severe many times we use both a steroid cream and anti-fungal together. Please see your primary care provider to see if this wold be appropriate. ...Read more

I was sick&still have sore throat, but today I felt pain in groin area, I saw boil on penis&felt small bump, might be on adductor longus that hurts.??

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
