Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
When did the bumps develop?
How large are they?
A few days ago.
How many are there?
the size varies, they grow larger when i itch, not larger than 1 cm
5 on scrotum and around 7 on penis
Do you have pain, itching or any other symptom?
no pain, only itching
especially night time
Is there any fluid in them?
no there's not
Did you have unprotected sex?
No, I haven't
The symptoms of itching and red bumps can be due to allergy or fungal infection.
Herpes can cause red bumps but they usually contain fluid.
Infection usually causes pain too.
Are they increasing in number?
not since two days
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
Local antifungal cream like lotrimin can help in case of fungal infection.
You can try it.
You can also take zyrtec. That would help in allergy & itching.
What could have caused it and how could i have prevented it?
Fungal infection can occur in moist areas.
Contact with fungus can occur from environment.
The cause of allergy is not often apparent.
There is also itching on my legs and thighs that started around the same time, can that have a connection?
Yes they can be related.
They can involve those areas.
Ah I see
I will that cream then
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know
