Genital bumps and their cause

User Profile
Can you tell me what the bumps may be that I just described above. I dont think STD because I have been with just my wife for 10 years and her with me. I dont think ingrown hairs becasue they are not red and there is alot of them. I am clueless. It just itches it does not burn or hurt but it itches terribly bad.

You wrote:” Current medical status: I have bumps on my scrotum and it itches very bad. The bumps are not white or red they are the same color as my flesh. I have not shaved down there. I have 1 sexual partner that I have had for 10 years we dont cheat on each other so I know it is not an STD. A couple of weeks ago I had to go to the doctor becasue when I was young I broke my leg really bad and I scratched the spot that my bone came out of my leg at and it got infected so I had to go get an antibiodic. About 2 weeks after I was done with medicine I got the bumps on my scrotum. They are not red or white. You can not pop them and get anything out of them. They are just there and I have never had this before. I have no clue what it is. I thought it might be ingrown hairs but there is alot of them and I dont shave there. Can you please help me and maybe give me some kind of idea as to what this is. If they were colored I may be able to find something on the internet about it but they are the same color as the rest of my penis.

It is not easy to figure what the cause for the bumps is without seeing them. Anyway, there are several possible causes. The most likely is a skin yeast infection. The area is humid and warm. These conditions can attribute a lot for the yeast to develop. Also, bumps of unknown origin can always be suspected for tumour. From the data you provided, there are more of them and that is not usual for a tumour.


However, a visit to dermatovenerologist is the only way you can find out the real reason for the bumps.
