Bumps On A Woman’s Pubic Skin
hello doc, I’m a woman in her 20s. lately I feel a bump around my pubic skin. after I tried to touch it turned out to be shaped like pimples and there are white eyes (maybe pus) in the middle and overgrown with a pubic hair. after I try to grope again it turns out there are some bumps like acne on the area of my pubic skin, not just one. I’m asking if it’s really just pimples? is it dangerous? and how to treat it? thank you
Thank you for the question
White-eyed bumps at the base of pubic hair are most likely caused by folliculitis. This condition occurs when the hair root is inflamed, it can be due to a bacterial, fungal, or hair infection that grows into the skin. It could also be caused by folliculitis habit of soaking in hot water, shaving the pubic hair, or contracting from other people who come into contact with your pubic skin. Frequently, bumps due to folliculitis will also feel itchy, painful, and can even swell.
Not only folliculitis, it can also bump on your genitals due to other factors, such as candidiasis, scabies, prickly heat, genital lice, syphilis, genital herpes, genital warts, molluscum contagiosum, contact dermatitis, acne, seborrheic dermatitis, insect bites, genital sweat, sperm, syphilis, genital herpes, genital warts, molluscum contagiosum, contact dermatitis, acne, seborrheic dermatitis, insect bites, hyperbole, hyperkeratosis, genital herpes etc.
These conditions should be checked directly by a doctor so that they are handled properly. It could be, later the doctor will not only give you medicine, but also refer you to a dermatologist and genitals. At home, the following initial steps you can do:
Not having sex before marriage, and before being declared safe by the doctor who treats you
Clean your genitals with clean, running water, don't use any soap, fragrance, or any chemical
Shorten your pubic hair at regular intervals, don't shave off, let alone pluck
Don't soak in hot water for too long
Don't exchange clothes, pants or toiletries with other people
Do not hold your genitals with dirty hands
