I have a red spot just next to my testicle but not on it, its very red and feels very hard and sore to touch

I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
How large is it?

Is it movable?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

It developed a week or so I think that's when I noticed it, its just to the left between my testicle and penis I think its staying the same size and I can feel it is hard under the skin too

Did you have any trauma?
How large is the spot?
Did you consult doctor?
Did you take any medicine?
Did you have unprotected sex?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No its about the size of a drawing pin head, no, no, no

Thank you for the information,
There can be a few possibilities.
It can be an inflammation or infection.
Infection of hair follicle or folliculitis can occur there.
An inflamed cyst is also possible.
You can apply warm moist compress over it.
Neosporin antibacterial cream can be applied.
If it does not subside or increases in size, please take an examination by doctor.
If the pain is much you can take paracetamol.
I hope this information helps.
I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.
