First off, I am a male. I have red itchy bumps on my perineum. They appeared after a hard night of working out. I woke up and my perineum itched with several bumps. I did not take a shower prior to falling asleep, so I did go to bed with sweat.. So the same day I noticed the bumps, I went to the doctor and he told me it appeared to be fungal.. I don't think he saw far enough down my perineum and I'm scared he's just saying it's fungal. This paranoia started 3 months ago when I received a brief 10 second blowjob from a women I just met. Does this sound like herpes? or is my doctor correct about it being fungal?
Also, the bumps look like tiny acne bumps. They are scattered about the size of my pinky on my perineum. They also, appear to be under the skin and raised, NOT on top of the skin and filled with fluid. Any ideas?
