I recently just shaved my pubic region about a week ago.

Customer Question
Hello! I recently...

Hello! I recently just shaved my pubic region about a week ago. about 3-4 days later after shaving I had two painless scabs show up on my penis. I went to the doctor and he diagnosed it as a Folliculitis But now I have about 3 more scabs and some painless clusters of what looks like blistered right next to the scabs. They do not itch or hurt at all.

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I had burning while I used the bathroom as well and the doctor said that was a case of Urethritis

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
