My Boyfriend is experiencing painless white bumps, pubic area (looks like pimples); warm water aggravates it. 2 months. Hydrocortisone cream?
Maybe: Hydrocortisone cream can help decrease itching and minor inflammation's redness or bumpiness. One's primary care doctor may need to examine the rash to see if there is yeast (fungus) overgrowth, or bacterial overgrowth, on the skin or at the hair follicles.

Stop shaving, 4 now: Razor-bumps result from shaving/cutting the hair too short, thus causing the hair to get stuck under the skin causing the bumps. Basically these are trapped hair follicles. Use of some exfoliating skin lotion/cream may help the trapped hair to come through to surface and thus resolve the bumps. So, stop shaving too closely will reduce this. Laser/electrolysis is expensive, but no bumps! Good luck. ...Read more

This may happen sometimes, especially if you shave this area and you injure the skin in the process. Try applying an antibiotic cream or a mixture of an antibiotic cream and a hydrocortisone cream a few times; if no healing, see your dr. ...Read more
I have these bumps around my pubic area. They aren't shave bumps, rather new and I don't know what they're from.
If you shave pubis may be from ingrown hairs. Like pseudofolliculitis berberi if red or inflammed may be folliculitis that needs antibitoics. Would avoid shaving for 1-2 weeks, wash 2 x a day, try mupirocin topical. May be skin tags, cysts or warts. F/u w/ derm

Be careful shaving again, use a sharp razor and shave in the direction of hair and not zigzag, up and down is the way to go. ...Read more
