In brief: Skin bumps

By bumps do you mean pimple-like in the skin? Usually they represent a blocked sweat duct.
Risks include poor hygiene, unclean underwear and shaving the hair. Stis, especially herpes of genital warts (hpv), can be the cause. Larger bumps could represent a sebaceous cyst. Rare autoimmune dx's present with genital bumps, hidradenits suppurativa.
