Can you describe these lesions, and why do you call them "blood blisters?' Where are they, exactly?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Because I can bust them like blisters and they are full of blood. They are red and full of blood. most are real small but they are different sizes. I thought maybe it was vains breaking but I don't know??

They don't stick up much and when I bust them they bleed a lot. you can squeeze them like blister and bust them and also they itch when I bust them??

Expert:  Doctor Chip replied 5 years ago.
Sorry for the delay. Are you on any blood thinners or aspirin? Any problems with prolonged bleeding elsewhere?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I am on blood thinners and take some aspirin but have not had anyother trouble with bleeding else were

How tight are your underwear?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
although I wear briefs I don't think they are too tight? They are just hanes regular underwear like I have always woren? Maybe a little tight around the waist hahahaha
Expert:  Doctor Chip replied 5 years ago.
It'a hard to come up with a single diagnosis, but, here goes: 1) This may not be anything serious but, as you said, blood blisters due to your taking blood thinners, but, I'd expect bruising on other parts of your body 2) Serious sepsis from bacterial infections like gonorrhea and meningitis, but, you'd be very sick 3) Scurvy, but I'll suppose you're not a sailor out to sea for long periods without citrus fruits to eat. The one confusiong part is the isolation to the scrotum which makes me think it's nothing serious. I seriously doubt a sexually-transmitted disease, if that was part of your concern. In any event, you should consult your physician about it.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I don't think it is serious either but I don't know. I have never had even jock itch. Another thing is I think it started a couple years ago after I tryed a sex lubricant that had spermicide in it like trojan brand
