Question: Small Red Spots under Pubic Hair

 steve1987 - Sun Aug 31, 2008 11:13 am

I have noticed small flesh coloured spots at the base of my penis for about the last month now.

But as time is going by i have noticed little clusters of flesh coloured spots under my pubic hair and about 20 which are red and very noticeable.

When i pop them a little clear liquid comes out but mostly its blood.

I do have sex reguarly but haven't changed my partner.

Please could you give me and idea of what this could be?

User avatar Hello,
Because there are lots of glands and follicles in this area, the bumps may be just normal or there can be infection but squeezing them is never a good idea so try to resist the urge. I would encourage a dermatologist if these are bothersome in any way. If they don't bother you except for cosmetically, they may be just the normal variation of skin with the hair follicles that sometimes change a bit but are harmless.

Best wishes
