Causes Of Small Bumps On Pubic?
So a few days ago I found a small pimple-like bump on the outer skin of the genitals, and the next day I checked again and it turned out that there were two and they were located opposite one and the other. What causes the lump to appear? And how to solve it? Thank you
Hello, good evening Windy.
Small bumps on the outer skin of the genitals can be caused by:
Folliculitis, which is inflammation of the hair follicles (in this case pubic hair) due to bacterial infection. The cause is usually due to shaving pubic hair Hidradenitis suppurativa, is an inflammation of the sweat glands that causes the appearance of small bumps such as acne. This disease can be transmitted through contact with items that have been infected with the virus (such as towels), or through direct contact through sexual activity
To be able to diagnose what you are experiencing, an in-person examination is needed. Therefore, it is recommended that you consult a doctor. Treatment is tailored to the cause of the complaint. In the meantime you can do the following things before you see a doctor:
don't lift, squeeze, or pick at lumps, try to keep your genitals dry and clean, use a clean towel or tissue to wipe the pubic area after defecation, change underwear whenever it feels damp, avoid using soap to clean the feminine area.
