Hi, after a took a shower yesterday i noticed a bump between my thigh and scrotum not exactly in the crease but on the scrotum side and i thought it was an ingrown hair so i tried to pop it and i couldn't, it hurt and a little light blood with clear fluid came out and now its a red bump, so I'm freaking out about it and I'm looking at std and genital herpes but i don't have anything on my genitals or penis, but i haven't had sex in but still worried because i would think my life's over if that please!
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

How big is the bump?
Is there tenderness, pain?

Thanks for the photos. This is not likely to be STD. This is most likely to be hair follicle infection which may have been aggravated by the popping. You may apply Betadine cream which is available over the counter. You can also apply Neosporin cream alternatively.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
