hi im 20 years, male, i duno if i have std or what and im getting abit scared now! you see i have this bump , less then a cm big its in my groin area between my thigh, i dont know if its herpes or a gentail wart or what? its a bump buts it pops like a white head pimple, i just pop them and they normally go away,i popped this one last week. i had one (in different area) just a few days after i shaved and another after this one popped last week ( they both gone now), but now its back it feels sort of solid under the skin (like the others did), its been just about 2 weeks since i shaved, nt realy sore unless i apply pressure, i had unprotected sex like a year and half ago, it started last year to but it only started after i started shaving that area (and wearing those skin hugging underwaer hotpants things) which, normally appears in random area about +/- 2 weeks after i shave that area below but i shave regularly so i dont know if that it or not. I have been doing my research and from what iv read gential warts dont pop, and herpes is more a "surface of skin" type of virus and appears clusters and is itchy etc (athough i am itchy in that area bt only after i shave , after about 2 and half weeks not itchy anymore), there no clusters etc, any idea what i could be???? all the pics on the internet seem to be a bit extreme , i normally get a single one at a time.

eisha,
hey man, what you are describing does NOT sound like and STD %-) your right, warts do not pop and herpes are more open sores and are flat. these sound more like ordinary pimples. the fact that they also get worse after you shave helps back up the pimple diagnosis, when you shave you unaviodably cause irritation and can get ingrone hairs (which also cause these symptoms) the itchin is due to shaving as well. How do you shave? it may help to do it with cream or in a hot shower. "more lube = less friction ;-). you could go see your doctor if it will put your mind at ease but i really don't think you have anything to worry about.

let us know if you have anymore questions or concerns.

Update...hmmm ok so read ur post the other day and yesterday night i was getting impatient because it wants popen so i tried to prod it wit needle, it was weirdest thing, there was quite a bit of blood and a lil puss but the needle only hurt going through the outer layer of skin once it was in near the surface i could move it around the radius of bump wit out pain, if i tried to go further i would get a sharp pricking feeling so would stop, the needle could also go about almost 2 cm in (with the are that i could move th needle around in with out pricking feeling getting narrower as go deeper), i woke up this morning the bump still there but it has gone like almost flat u can notice it, although if i press down on it i can feel the same hardish but more flat bum under skin, so no freaking out, could that have been a wart? or cancer or someting?

Update...hmmm ok so read ur post the other day and yesterday night i was getting impatient because it wants popen so i tried to prod it wit needle, it was weirdest thing, there was quite a bit of blood and a tinyist bit of puss but the needle only hurt going through the outer layer of skin once it was in near the surface i could move it around the area of bump wit out pain, if i tried to go further then radius of bump i would get a sharp pricking feeling so would stop, the needle could also go about almost 2 cm in (with the area that i could move th needle around in with out pricking feeling getting narrower as go deeper), literally felts like there was ntin there until i went far enough to prod myself, i woke up this morning the bump still there but it has gone like almost flat u cant notice it, although if i press down on it i can feel the same hardish but more flat bum under skin and is sore (though i think that must be from me proding it wit needle and squizing it), so now freaking out, could that have been a wart? or cancer or someting? (it was a normal surgical needle that i had used before to take thorns out, i sterelized it before i used it with a flame from match and then wiped it with savlon (equavalent to detol)). Biomajor any ideas?

Eisha,

i really dont thing it was a wart or cancer since some pus came out of it. the lump is sore yes from poking and proding. i think it is still a pimple or a sebacious oil gland. have you looked up fordyces spots?? do they look like thoes? it may be a good idea to get it checked out by a doctor just to be safe.

No worries, keep posted
