It started as a red rash on my butt. Almost looked like bug bites or pimples that itched especially at night. Then spread to the gential area.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I thought it might have been beg bugs or some type of bug so I cleaned my room really good and sprayed for bugs. It hasn't gone away and has been bothering me for about 2 weeks now. I started to use alcohol on it and tea tree oil and the small red bumps went away. But now I'm left with these big red bump on my private parts.

My penis doesn't itch but after any type of friction the bumps become a lot worse. My scrotume itches a little but my groin and buttocks itch a lot.

Did you get it all?
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for the pictures. Do you have them on any other part of your body or just scrotum and genital area?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have 2 on my buttocks and I woke up with 1 on my arm today. They feel like something is in it but don't have a head or opening and no leakage
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
This is the on on my arm

They definitely look like insect bites and I would recommend using neosporin and hydrocortisone 1% twice daily for at least 1 week (both otc). If they do not improve after 1 week I would recommend seeing a doctor who can give you a prescription strength ointment that would cover your whole body overnight. That almost always takes care of it should it be something like bed bugs or scabies (unlikely).

I don't think it is insect bites due to it has spread even after cleaning everything and spraying everything
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 1 year ago.

By insects I mean bed bugs or scabies which are extremely difficult to get rid of. I would suggest getting a professional to fumigate your room or set up traps if you want to be sure. Also wash your clothing and bed sheets in extremely hot water.
