To describe the bump/pimple a little more, it is definitely swollen (more so than when I took the picture), red, and very painful. It is tender to the touch, and definitely feels warm, which seems to indicate maybe an infected ingrown hair to me, but I'd appreciate other people's input.
we don't look at pictures here. why not is explained in our read before posting post on this forum.
odds are this isn't genital herpes but follow up on it properly to find out what it is for peace of mind.
Thanks for the reply....I apologize for not reading that post first - my picture is just of my thigh, but I can definitely understand why the policy is in place. I might just be freaking myself out here and overanalyzing things, but a little bit ago I noticed some tiny (size of a pin head) bumps on the inner crease of where I am circumcised. It seems like that area is normally kind of bumpy because of the nature of the skin there, but some of the bumps do look to be white and maybe a sign of herpes? I am planning on going to a clinic here on Tuesday (unfortunately Monday is a holiday so I have to freak out 24 hours longer). The bumps don't seem to hurt or anything, but I'm getting more and more nervous.
[I wish I could edit my posts instead of having to add a whole new post] I'm really sorry to post again....I got myself more worked up about the tiny bumps but when I looked again, it looks like they are pretty much uniformly around along the crease of the circumcision and do just appear to be relatively normal appearance of the skin, but I suppose anything is possible. Like I said, I'm planning on going to a clinic as soon as they're open, but I think I'm a little relieved that I'm not seeing just a small patch of these bumps, and that they're uniformly around....but I'm still not sure :-/
you sure these aren't pearly papules which are normal?
let us know how your appointment turns out. not many clinics closed monday, more of a bank and gov't worker holiday :)
