Question: Red itchy bumps on genitals.


 MARKAA - Sat Dec 20, 2008 5:21 pm

It all started with a itchy rash starting on my inner thighs. Warm temps (like being under a blanket would cause itchiness to the extent of keeping me awake. Then I began to have itchiness on my testicle forming a red spot the size of a pencil eraser. That red bump then spread and within a week I got as many as 7 bumps on my genitals. No pain, no puss, no blood, the bumps feel solid. They look like mosquito bite bumps and become larger if I touch them. Other than that the rash on my inner thigh has spread to my armpits, causing a similiar bump on the back of my arm and inner thigh. The itchiness is driving me crazy, I have been using corizone cream and neosporin to attempt to help the situation. It temporarily stopps the itching but the bumps become inflamed. I have had 5 sexual partners my whole life. I have not had sex in months. all of my partners (all women) get tested and do not have anything. From what I have read i may have dermatitis however i need confirmation because im starting to become concerned. I have pictures however i do not want to post directly on the site. Please help - thank you

User avatar Hello,
Thanks for your inquiry (sorry about the delayed response).

This rash could be the result of a fungal or yeast infection.
Powder spray clotrimazole for 7-14 days twice a day make eradicate the symptoms.

For a definite diagnosis consult your family physician.

Keep us posted.
