 hansell20 - Mon Feb 25, 2008 3:27 pm

I am a 20 year old currently active with a stable partner but before that i had sex with another partner without protection and i have notice this bumps on the groin area not on the penis and some times this pimple lookin bumps are on the inside of the skin and you can only feel the bump but sometimes the bump will be noticeable and red, and it does hurt, when i pop it white stuff comes out like if it was a pimple then blood comes out.I have been getting this like 3 month ago they come only one at the time but quite frequently. I have no discharge no odor but it is concerning me i got a Hiv test done i came out clean but i havent gone to get an std the reason im saying this is because my current partner had a std test done like 2 months ago n she came out clean so i don't know what could this be any help will be appreciated thank you . By the way i have a pic don't know how to post it or if you can post it???

User avatar Hello,
Some bumps and skin variations are quite normal. I would advise first leaving it alone (no squeezing or picking) to see if it goes away. Even if it doesn't that does not mean it is a problem, but it can be analyzed better if it has not been irritated by you. Squeezing can lead to infection. Not knowing the sexual history of your past partner of course leaves you somewhat vulnerable to STI so it doesn't hurt to be tested to be sure anyway.

Good luck.
