i have just recently gotten some itchy and sore(at the same time) pimples on my crotch. not on the penis, but the area above. some had white heads and i popped them. i noticed them about 2 hours after i had sex with my girlfriend the other day. she has them too. i was the only person she's been with. im curious as to what these are. they dont seem like herpes because they are not clusters. they just look like red pimples and some had white heads. help me out because im freaking!!!
They could be pimples or impacted pubic hair follicles. In either case they are common and nothing to worry about. It's best to leave them alone and not pop them, but if you do, be sure to keep the area clean and watch to make sure further infection doesn't happen.
Just an update on the above. I got a little worried so I went to the clinic yesterday and was diagnosed with Molluscum Contagiousum. It is a skin infection usually found in children and can be transmitted by close contact, sharing towels, swimming pools, etc...
Usually when found in adults it is sexually transmitted, so it is on the STD list. It's nothing to be worried about, as a matter of fact if left untreated they will dissapear after a few months. It is believed they only transmittable when they are visible.
So I opted for the treatment of course, as the itching was getting annoying as hell. This was the part that sucked. The doctor used liquid nitrogen to freeze them off, which burns pretty bad. It wasn't too too bad, at least until she found ones on the base of my penis, then it didn't feel all that great. It may take a couple treatments, approximately once a week for two or three times, sometimes more. The treatment is worth it though, the itching is pretty much all gone.
Anyways yea, all that info is for anyone that may be freakin' out about it like I was.
