Customer Question

Hi I recently developed Tinea Cruris and I was given an anti fungul cream which resolved this.
Just before it disappeard I noticed a small hard lump under the skin on my Mons Pubis. It can't be seen just felt.
Within 24hrs it had grown 2.5 cm's in length and 0.5 cm's in width going down on my Labia Majora.
Over the next few days I have noticed more of these appear two on the right where my groin and leg meet and one in the left.
They are quite uncomfortable and I have a dull ache going down the inside of my thigh at time.
The lumps hurt internally when pressed and the exterior skin is slightly sore after being touched.
I don't know if this is in anyway related to the Tinea Cruris and would appreciate any indoation you can give me around this.
Thanks in advance.

This sounds like a secondary bacterial infection: perhaps a folliculitis, which can be from staph bacteria.
I would go have this looked at immediately.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
