I have been married twice! One for 4 years and the other for over 10 years! No condoms because I was married! The bumps are not painful, just irritating! No medication as of yet! Been mostly self doctoring!

Please upload a picture to review if possible.

Waiting for your response.
Thanks

Can't afford the $50 dollars, not quite comfortable with sending a picture!

It' OK.

No need for extra charges of $ 50 for the phone call.

I didn't send you any request.

It was automatic service for providing additional service.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, chances of STD or anything serious infection is very less likely.

Most likely these are either razor bumps or folliculitis/Sebaceous cyst.

Now I would recommend some self-care measures like
Do warm water sitz bath with betadine solution twice a day for 5-10 minutes.
And afterward, apply OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream mixed with bacitracin ointment twice a day.

Clean the area with DIAL soap and use OTC Abzorb powder afterward.
You should avoid frequent washing.
And keep the area dry and clean.
Wear loose-fitting cotton clothes to prevent friction.
Take OTC Motrin and Claritin for few days.
RepHresh Pro-B probiotic supplement that balances yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health with just one capsule per day.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

What about douching! Should I put that off for a week or a few days?

You should avoid it for a week.

Hope this helps.
