I recently had a yeast infection in my groin/genital area

Customer Question

I recently had a yeast infection in my groin/genital area and soon after I noticed bumps in my pubic area where my penis meets my pubic area. Could this be folliculitis?

Here you go. Incidentally I believe I may have had a reaction to the tea tree oil/iodine combo.

There is no burning or stinging when I urinate. It doesn't burn or itch either.

Thank you for your response.

It does seem like you are either having a local reaction to something that you may have applied on it or it may also be a local skin infection like folliculitis or both combined as well.

I would recommend that you should use an over-the-counter antibiotic combined with a topical steroid cream.

Topical antibiotics include neosporin or polysporin.

Topical over-the-counter steroid is 1% hydrocortisone.

Mix one part each and use for one week.
