I have had some bumps on my groined only around my pubic hair regions the bumps are shiny flesh coloured, tiny bit red around the base and are not itchy nor painful. there is no pus or liquid and only blood comes out if picked or scratched, only some of the bumps have hairs coming out of them and the hair not always at the center of the bumps. some of the bumps seem to be in small groups and some are touching right beside each other (usually 2- 3 touch) they have progressivly gone around my whole pubic hair region but mostly reside at the base of the penis but dont go anwhere enelss there is hair ive also noticed bumps forming on my index fingers (may be unrelated as these are more like liquid filled areas and arent as circular as the ones in my pubic hair region) ive also noticed the circular bumps from my pubic hair region start going up higher onto my lower bellie blow my bellie button but arent as dense or close together. the bumps sometimes go away after a while and i can usually tell that they are going to go away when the skin on the bumps becomes dry and cracked. I have had unprotected sex before but not since these bumps have started occuring.
These bumps seem to be infected hair follicles.Folliculitis usually appears as small, white-headed pimples around one or more hair follicles but deep or recurring folliculitis may need medical treatment.
When the hair follicles get damaged, they may be invaded by viruses, bacteria or fungi, leading to infections such as folliculitis. The most common causes of hair follicle damage include friction from shaving or tight clothing, excessive perspiration, inflammatory skin conditions, including dermatitis and acne.
You can apply an antibiotic cream on the areas but in your case a course of oral antibiotics will be required since they seem to be quite extensive.
It could be eczema, sweat dermatitis, allergic reactions, herpes, etc.
You need to wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites.
Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. You could take some oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine. You need to maintain a good personal hygiene .
Anti-itch drugs, often antihistamine, may reduce the itch during a flare up of eczema, and the reduced scratching in turn reduces damage and irritation to the skin.
For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone or desonide), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide).
Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema. Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms.
