Before you pop any more, do you have a picture of the area either before or now?

If you aren't comfortable uploading images then please describe what the area looked like and what the "bumps" looked like in detail.

The open sore is the one I "popped" or basically scraped off the tiny little bumps around the area is what it was before.. I have OCPD, and if I have a bump Anywhere on my body I obsessively pick myself to pieces.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

Ouch, that looks like a painful one.

The good news is that those are fordyce spots and not pathologic bumps. They aren't infections or STD's or anything of that sort. They will be present from time to time, then resolve, then reappear.

Awesome!! Didn't think it was std related (not sexually active) I'm more scared of skin infections, or cancers.. Super paranoid. Thank you so so much for this momentary peace of mind!!!
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

No, not at all a cancer or skin infection, thankfully nothing like that on that image.

Anytime. Before tearing up your skin next time please ask me :)

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.
