It's not painful or itchy I have had a few sex partners like 2 since I got it but not unprotectedI did shave before I got it not sure if it could be in grown hair.

Tired no medications
What do u think it is
Dermatologist: DermDoc, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Hi,

This lesion you describe can be due to folliculitis or infected boil etc.

You have most likely squeezed it and it got worse.

I think this should heal with some self care measures.

You can apply soframycin cream and betadine ointment.

Also neomycin cream it can be helpful.Neomycin, an antibiotic, is used to prevent or treat skin infections caused by bacteria.

I hope this helps

Did you look at the photos aswell doctor ?
Dermatologist: DermDoc, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Yes i have seen the photos.

This look more likely infected and local antibiotic cream should be helpful.

Could I use hydrozole?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
doctor should I stop worrying ? So u definitely think it's not herpes because I'm really worried
Dermatologist: DermDoc, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Hydrozole treats fungal infections.I don't think it will be of much help.

This is not herpes.

You can find antibiotic for topical application like soframycin or neomycin at a local pharmacy OTC.

What about any other type of Std ?So you definitely think it's a infected boil ?
Dermatologist: DermDoc, Doctor replied 1 year ago

I think you should treat it with antibiotic ointment and wait for few days before testing.

Probably you told above you had protected sex so i think you should not be worried about STD.

This is infected lesion ?folliculitis ?infected boil.

Treatment of both of them is similar and usually antibiotics are required.

you think I should get it tested or you positive it's not herpes or a std ?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
What you mean by infected lesion? Isn't lesion, herpes ?
Dermatologist: DermDoc, Doctor replied 1 year ago

I don't think this is herpes or STD.

A lesion is any abnormal damage or change in the tissue.

I think it is Bacterial infection.

Dermatologist: DermDoc, Doctor replied 1 year ago
