Question Genital Herpes/Jock Itch/???

First off,

I had a herpes scare once before about a year ago, and I went to the health center at my college and the doctor told me it was just folliculitis.

Now since then, I think that I have gotten jock itch but I'm not completely sure. I haven't gone to a doctor about it and the lotrimin cream I tried didn't work.

I also have a bunch of white dots (look like pimples) that don't hurt all over my scrotum.

Recently, I have developed a hard lump right where my penis meets my scrotum. It feels like a marble underneath the skin and itches sometimes. When I apply direct pressure it also slightly hurts. It doesn't feel like a blister because of how hard it is.

I haven't had in slightly over 2 months, and when I did I used a condom.

Can anyone tell me if this seems like herpes, jock itch, or something else?

Thanks in advance

sounds like ingrown hairs... and the bump could be a fatty cyst.. caused by too much caffeine woman often get them in their breasts.. if you are still concerned would not hurt to get check, but I do not think it is an STD... stop worrying.. have a good week. Coping
