I think I have a blocked gland where my scrotum and perineum

Customer Question

I think I have a blocked gland where my scrotum and perineum join. It's quite painful sometimes when I walk and it is inflamed. I've had it for over a week now and its not getting better. Previously when I've had this (Can recall 2 or 3 other times) it usually goes away after a week. I've taken a pic as I've seen someone else has on a thread a read. Is this something you can check for me to tell me what you suspect it is , and what treatment I should supply. It would be embarrassing having to book a docs appointment over this . thanks
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: This first pic shows it locations (towards the bottom 1/3 of the pic in the middle) The second pic is a when the skin is pulled back
JA: OK got it. Last thing — OB GYN Doctors generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
