red bump still here

when i went to the doc last week cause of the red bump i found on my scrotum, he thought it might be an ingrown hair. when he touched it, it bled a tiny bit. and he barely touched it. i told him i had molluscum last year, but he didnt say anything about that. does anyone know what this sounds like?

i asked him if it could be herpes..and he said he didnt think so. i even asked if i should have it tested but he didnt think that i should worry. its been 2 weeks or so and it hasnt changed. doesnt hurt or anything either. i dont know what to think. i dont know if i should wait 3 months after possible exposure if i get tested for herpes. does this really sound like genital herpes?

i get a red bump sometimes under my scrotum and in diffrent areas every now and then over the years, sometimes twice in a year. i was really freaked out and went to my doctor and had a herpes test, everything came out fine and i was clean. but it came back and it turned out the ones under my scrotum were indeed small ingrown hairs. i'm 22 and this kinda thing scared me becasue it thought it happens more when you're younger. dealing with all that and thinking i had herpes was the worst weeks but everything turned out fine. i would still get tested though if you want to put your mind at ease.

Re: red bump still here

Does a herpes bump act like a pimple? I have a bump just below my belt line and I popped it yesterday and some white puss came out (just a small amount like a small pimple) and now it has a scab from trying to pop it more. Sound benign? I think I am going to see what happens over the weekend then go in.
