Lower stomach  
I have these bumps on lower part of penis 1 on the back skin near testicles and a couple on my stomach? They have been driving me crazy because I don't know what they are I am going to the doctors in a week but I kind of want a answer now. The website will only allow me to upload 2 photos I have more so I just put my lower stomach one and lower penis.

Answer
Hi Drew,

I wouldn't worry to much about your ingrown hairs as tons of people get them (including myself!). You can differentiate ingrown hairs from something STI-related, like herpes, from intense pain, pus-like discharge, burning, and itching. Oh and herpes sores tend to only come as a SINGLE sore, not several like you have. If you have follow up let me know, but these tend to heal on their own and they can come back as you probably know.

Cheers,

John
