Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm not really sure what to make of it or if it might be something else

Thank you. This just looks like an irritated oul gland which probably caused itching. You might have most likely scratched it in your sleep leading to bleeding. Nothing to worry, just apply 5% Benzoyl peroxide cream once a day on the area and it should help up in a week. Nothing to worry. Not an STD. Hope this helps. Do keep me posted & get back if you have any further questions or feel that I have missed out anything. I will be here to provide ongoing advice as necessary. Best wishes
