Hello, So I seen bumps on my genital area. First time I saw one red/skin colored bump on the head of my penis about four days after having protected sex. This was back in August. I had unprotected sex back in March. Vaginal intercourse. I am a male. I did the same a year before that in May of 2013. I have had only two partners. I was tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia two weeks ago came up negative, and a repeat test last Wednesday, in which I am waiting on results. I was also tested for HIV which came up negative, and then Syphilis last week (still waiting for results). I am just scared I have HPV or genital herpes. Any way to have an idea before my annual check up on November 11th? I am very scared, and am 20 years old. There is a bump on the bottom of my scrotum sac, it is round, looks like a pimple.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the genital bumps that you describe without examining them to ascertain other characteristics. Avoid self-diagnosis. Visit your doctor/urologist/dermatologist for thorough examination and evaluation to look for the exact cause for the genital bumps that you describe. Further treatment options can be suggested based on your examination findings and evaluation results. Avoid use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation in the area and keep the area clean and dry. Rinse undergarments well and use antiseptic solution for the last rinse. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/urologist/dermatologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
