Dr. Saha :

Hello,

Dr. Saha :

Thank you for your question,

Dr. Saha :

I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.

Dr. Saha :

When did the bumps develop?

How large are they?

A few days ago.

Dr. Saha :

How many are there?

the size varies, they grow larger when i itch, not larger than 1 cm

Customer:

5 on scrotum and around 7 on penis

Dr. Saha :

Do you have pain, itching or any other symptom?

no pain, only itching

especially night time

Dr. Saha :

Is there any fluid in them?

Customer:

no there's not

Dr. Saha :

Did you have unprotected sex?

No, I haven't

Dr. Saha :

The symptoms of itching and red bumps can be due to allergy or fungal infection.

Dr. Saha :

Herpes can cause red bumps but they usually contain fluid.

Dr. Saha :

Infection usually causes pain too.

Dr. Saha :

Are they increasing in number?

Customer:

not since two days

Dr. Saha :

I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.

Dr. Saha :

Local antifungal cream like lotrimin can help in case of fungal infection.

Dr. Saha :

You can try it.

Dr. Saha :

You can also take zyrtec. That would help in allergy & itching.

Customer:

What could have caused it and how could i have prevented it?

Dr. Saha :

Fungal infection can occur in moist areas.

Dr. Saha :

Contact with fungus can occur from environment.

Dr. Saha :

The cause of allergy is not often apparent.

Customer:

There is also itching on my legs and thighs that started around the same time, can that have a connection?

Dr. Saha :

Yes they can be related.

Dr. Saha :

They can involve those areas.

Customer:

Ah I see

Customer:

I will that cream then
