Hello, question about a bump in my pubic region. I noticed it yesterday while showering. Prior to that I never noticed it so idk if it just popped up yesterday or if its been there. It doesn't hurt, burn, or anything. The only time it "hurts" is when I apply a lot of pressure when trying to pop it (not smart, I know).
I do often get an in ingrown hair down there (maybe once every other month). I'm not sexually active, & haven't been since January/February.
My question is, based on the symptoms (or lack thereof), would it be herpes or a boil? It's not a cluster if bumps. Just one big one the size of a pea. It's hard when applying pressure but when just touching it it feels like its squishy & filled with something.
Like I said, it isn't painful unless pressure is applied. It's like a red/white mix type of color. More red than anything.
Any info would help. I would go to the clinic but the free clinic closes at 3 on Thursdays here & isn't open on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays. so I wouldn't be able to go until Monday in order to get any professional input.
Okay, now I really am kinda scared. I just went to the bathroom. When I wiped, I noticed blood on the toilet paper. I inspected my area again and noticed my actual "hole" isn't bleeding. It's the area in my inner-cheek close to/around the actual hole that is bleeding. I see spots of red and when I wipe, it's blood. Right now I'm sitting down and it still feels kinda burning-ish from wiping I'm assuming.
What would cause the area around the hole to be raw-feelings and bleed?View Thread
Hello. I've posted before regarding an issue and figured I'd try again for a new issue. I have some itching going in in my anal region. I do not think it is herpes or something like that (I see no bumps/blisters). I did have sex on May 2nd unprotected with someone I trust. He is sure he has nothing (we've messed around before & I always came up negative for things so I do trust his word). Well, the itching is quite annoying. Also, when I wipe and when I clean that area in the shower, it kind of hurts. But it doesn't hurt any other time, only when wiping after a bowel movement or when I'm wiping/cleaning while showering. I've researched & it came up that i could be an anal fissure (which I have had before) but when I remember having one, it never hurt when I wiped. It only hurt during the actual bowel movement so idk if it is a fissure or not. However, I've also seen yeast infection come up here & there as well. Also, on the head of my penis is read spots. They are painless and don't look like bumps, just red flat spots. I've had those before (even when I was a virgin) so idk if they can be related or not but I thought I'd throw that in there. The red spots occur every few months (maybe 4 or 5 months). My main issue though is the itching in my anus region. Would anybody know symptoms of a yeast infection in the anus region? How would I go about treating it? Also, what could the red spots on the head of my penis be caused by? Again, they aren't painful or anything. They're just there. Any info would be great, thanks!View Thread
I just finished showering & while washing my bottom, it burned. So I'm assuming it is a yeast infection?
I don't have funds to go to a doctor to really know so that's out if the question.
I did get a mirror and looked down there. I saw tiny tiny red specs that looked like little tiny cuts. I also saw what could have been a hemorrhoid. Other than when I wash it doesn't burn. It it he's off & on throughout the day.
Also, the redness on my pen is head is gone.
What STDs have itching as a symptom (aside from herpes) & how long after exposure would the symptoms start to show? It'll be 3 week this Friday since I've had sex.View Thread
I was just doing a little more research and saw that syphilis too produces "painless" sores. Mine was only painless if left alone. When I applied pressure to the bump it hurt. Since it busted, it no longer hurts. Like at all. As I'm writing this, it still looks like it did in the picture I provided and when I apply pressure I feel nothing at all now. It's been like that since it busted. Every time I apply pressure now I feel nothing. It's like it's not even there. And since a symptom of syphilis is "painless" sores, do you think it could be that? I'm trying to remain positive but it's hard to do when I keep doing research lol.
Does syphilis sores usually contain pus and blood? Or is it a clear fluid like herpes? So confused.View Thread
Hi Gail, I took a picture if what it looks like today.
Thursday is when it was popped.
I don't know what herpes looks like when it's healing nor do I really know what I boil looks like when healing. What does it look like to you? Thanks.
It hasn't come to a head. I've been putting warm compresses on it all day. Went to dinner with a friend, came home, went to the bathroom & noticed it was sort of bleeding. So I squeezed it ever so lightly and a lot of bloody pus came out. Like it was blood but mixed with pus so it was a pink color. Then a thick white ball of pus came out. Showered and put some peroxide, witch-hazel, and antibacterial ointment then covered it with a bandaid.
Safe to say its not herpes? I read somewhere herpes sores don't bust open with blood and pus, but instead a clear fluid. However what I have really isn't like a sore. Everything was under the skin.View Thread
