Hello, welcome to the site! My name is***** and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this
When did you notice?
around last friday or saturday
Do they itch?
Are they painful?
no pain. not itchy
How large is the area they affect?
theres a cluster of them about the size of my thumb to the knuckle and then they go a little diagonal about 5 or so cm above that
Okay, is there any hair in that area?
not that i notice, but i've never touched the area in terms of hair removal
Okay, I don't think you have anything to worry about, this is likely folliculitis, which is inflammation of the follicles, and it should subside with time
Usually, cortisone cream may help speed up the recovery
Ok. Thank You!
