Bumps in pubic area, anyone knows what it is?

Posted , 4 users are following.

i have these things for over a month now. They look like nothing ive seen before. they came after sex on multiple occasions with a person. the bigger ones i can pop. usually they bleed and some contain a white thick substance. The ones that look red or scaly are due to scratching. The smaller ones just appeared. Anyone else had something similar?image image

    might i add, i havent had any sexual contact with that person for a long time now, ever since those things popped up. She used to complain about red spots all over her pubic region and the back side of her thighs. Thought is was contact dermatitis due to friction and they usually would disappear after a few days of abstinence. Then i thought what i had was some infected folliculitis, so i started rubing the place with some erythromycin antibiotic cream. A week later and an empty tube of antibiotic cream, no difference was made so i stopped using it. Ive been treating the spot with iodine but i dont see any progress being made

    80% that is genital herpes. Most of the time there is no symptoms. Visit your doctor. 1/6 sexually active person have Genital herpes.

      They are itchy but in no way painful. They are on the pubic region and they dont look like the typical clinical image of herpes. What has me wondering is that i developed optic neuritis this past week which really makes me hope that its herpes (and not a precursor of Multiple sclerosis etc) but i highly doubt it. Guess ill spend some money and go get it checked out
