Customer Question
After taking a shower this...
After taking a shower this morning, my husband noticed tiny lumps on the skin of his testicles. When I looked at it it was rough to the touch (there were about 5 of them) so I put on Bacitracin ... is there a major concern for that condition? About two weeks ago he developed hives on his body (back, stomach, legs) ... I gave him benadryl and that seemed to help. Do you think that had something to do with the newly developed bumps? He is 72 years old and he regularly takes pills for epilepsy (Clonazepam, Depakote, VimPat). He is a controlled diabetic and takes (MetFormin, GlipZide) and for cholesterol he takes Atorvastatin. The hives are now practically gone and I think it could've been the chocolate he was eating and also the soap he was using (Irish Spring). Thank you for responding.

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

These tiny bumps are also a type of allergic reaction also known as urticaria.

This can occur from exposure to warm water shower as well.

Not an infection.

So no need to use bacitracin.

Benadryl should help again if starts itching.

Not concerning.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
