I found this lumpy thing between my testicles and the opening of my anus. I have had a couple of boils before in that area a few years back. I found this a few days ago as I was showering. It does not hurt and it is hard. Maybe it is scar tissue, or something else? Do I need to investigate this further?
It looks a little red (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity). Most probably, it is an infection of the hair follicle (similar to a boil). Keep the area clean and dry. Apply Mupirocin cream twice a day and take the tablet Azithromycin 500 mg in the morning after food for three days.
Yes, I can see redness around it. What about that big white circle between the fingers? This is the lump I feel when I am showering and it feels hard when I grab it. There is no pain or discomfort at all though. Is this something to worry about at all, or either way it is something minor?
The hard thing most probably will be a sebaceous cyst. A sebaceous cyst is just your enlarged oil gland and it does not require treatment. But, to confirm the diagnosis, a direct physical examination will be the best way.
