    bumps on genitals
    An_254153 posted:
    I have red bumps/pimples in my pubic area (just one or two), I've been getting these for a while and I dont know what to think of them. I have no other symptoms such as fever, muscle soreness, or anything at all. So I'm pretty sure it is just nothing, but what gets me is that one will show up, go away, and then another will show up in a different spot. Any help would be appreciated. Thankyou

    Sounds like an irritated hair follicle or perhaps just a pimple.

    An_254254 responded:
    Bacterial folliculitis caused by bacteria called Staphylococcus, is very common in the hairy areas of the body. If is very painful and forms a lump, you need antibiotics, otherwise minor pimple like lesions you can use polysporin ointment (OTC)
