Are you experiencing genital bumps?

Genital Bumps Overview

Genital bumps can be worrisome and irritating, especially when you don’t know what’s causing them. Genital bumps can be caused by a variety of conditions, especially sexually transmitted diseases. Sometimes they are caused by non-sexually transmitted diseases or benign conditions.

Genital bumps can vary in size, color, and nature depending on the cause. Sometimes they are red, while other times they may be pink or flesh colored. Bumps may itch or hurt, or have no sensation at all. They can be located anywhere on the genitals including the vaginal area, penis, urethra, thighs, anus, or buttocks.

Possible Causes of Genital Bumps

When genital bumps appear, sexually transmitted diseases are often the first to blame. Genital herpes, genital warts, and syphilis all cause blisters, lesions, or bumps on the genital area. Other common STDs such as gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, or chlamydia do not cause genital bumps.

Many other non-sexually transmitted diseases and conditions can cause genital bumps, including the following:

  • Jock itch
  • Shaving irritation and razor bumps
  • Ingrown hairs
  • Yeast infection
  • Allergic reactions

Diagnosing Genital Bumps

STD testing is highly recommended as the first step in diagnosing genital bumps. Among the STDs that commonly cause genial bumps, genital warts is diagnosed through a visual diagnosis, while a herpes and syphilis test are done through blood.

However, if you are at risk for STDs, a full screen is recommended. Chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, and trichomoniasis testing can be performed at a lab or even at-home STD testing. 

Treating Genital Bumps

Treatment for genital bumps depends on the diagnosis. Herpes is treated through antiviral medication while genital warts can be frozen off by a doctor. Other STDs such as syphilis and trichomoniasis are treated with antibiotics.

When genital bumps are not caused by STDs, certain home remedies may help, including the following:

  • For allergic reactions, discontinue the use of any soaps, detergents, or lotions may be causing irritation. Switch to dermatologist recommended brands formulated for sensitive skin.
  • Stop shaving to avoid ingrown hairs and shaving.
  • Wear loose fitting clothes to avoid chaffing or irritation.
  • Use over-the-counter medication to cure jock itch or yeast infections.
