Pustular pimple between the upper middle part of my anal i popped it and water and blood came out of it there is no hole but can it be a fluster?

Anal bleeding: It sounds like a hemorrhoid or an anal fissure. These can be treated at home by keeping the area clean and making sure your bowel movements are soft so as not to put any more pressure on this tissue while it heals. But, if you continue to bleed or have pain please make an appointment with your medical provider to make sure there is nothing else that needs to be included in your treatment. ...Read more

I have recently seen some bites on my upper thigh and even a couple on my genital area and they look like small pimples and itchy with redness?

I have recently seen some bites on my upper thigh and even a couple on my genital area and they look like small pimples and itchy with redness?

Many possibilities: Any of several skin conditions could cause this. Although people often assume insect bites, it's an uncommon cause. But I do wonder about scabies, or perhaps pubic lice (crabs). Or folliculitis, i.e. hair follicle inflammation, especially if you shave the area. No STD is a likely cause. See a doctor or clinic if more spots keep appearing or if not clearing up in a few days. Good luck! ...Read more
