Is this Genital warts or just ingrown hair pimples ?! Please help

Posted , 8 users are following.

I recently got these pinkish bumps on my pubic hair area and I’m scared that they are genital warts. I’m a male and the last time I had unprotected sex was in March. I’ve been fine this whole time but last week a couple days after I shaved, I got these weird bumps. They don’t hurt, burn nor itch. I feel totally fine and there’s NONE on the actual penis. They’re all in the area where the pubic hair grows. I had 1 before and I popped it and it came back which is the biggest and most noticeable one. Can someone please tell me what’s going on I’m scared

    Hi Allen

    Firstly, if you can pop it, it isn't a wart. That points to them being shaving rash.

    It is possible to pick up warts despite using a condom, particularly in an area like that which wouldn't be covered anyway. So if you've had more recent covered sex with someone with warts that could be a source.

    If I were in your shoes I would wait a week or so. If its shaving rash or similar they should begin to clear up. Warts wont clear up so if they arn't going on their own you will need a visit to the clinic to get them treated.

    While you wait avoid sex. Warts are very contagious

    Best of luck to you.

    When I had warts some years ago they did look small white and raised like your pictures. Mine were on the shaft of my penis though.

      Hello John, from my perspective... you have shaved your pubic hair very short. your pubic hair tends to be thicker then the rest of your body hair. When it is shaved it tends to curl under the skin causing inflation to your skin... It's most likely that you have pimples. Also keep in mind that pubic hair is a guard from STD's. If you start feeling burning from your area, you should contact your physician.

    Allen, from your photos it looks quite clear to me that with the ammount and texture of those bumps you have Molluscum Contagiosum, usually effects the pubis region, and like GW takes usually 3-6 months to develop.
