Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is likely an acne like lesion.

inflammation of the skin gland probably from bacterial infection.

This is not a STD.

You can try over the counter triple antibiotic ointment meanwhile.

Hi, Today I went to medical store and not able to find Neosporin ointment, so bought the "Salvon dual Action" gel, please let me , this one fine to use on my private area?
Thanks.
Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 2 years ago

This is not an antibiotic ointment.

You can try looking for Bacitracin gel --the local pharmacist may be able to assist you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
