Hello,
Welcome to XXXXXXX
Can you provide more information regarding your condition, in order to clarify,
1.When start your “bumps”
2.how many ‘ bumps “ and where exactly on the skin ( between penis and stomach are very large XXXXXXX called abdomen )
3.Do you have any itching, burning sensation, local pain ?
4.Do you had previously any skin conditions?
At this stage I would advice you don’t touch these “ bumps “ .You may ask nearest pharmacy for antiseptic solution like Povidone Iodine and sterile dressing to apply locally to those bumps and after that seek Dermatologist consultation.
Hope this helps and I have answered your query. If you have additional queries, don’t hesitate to ask.
Best Regards,

Dr.Mihail.

Hello,
Welcome back,
From your description is very unlikely to be herpes virus infection where appeared many vesicles sometimes filled with serous component , not blood, and accompanied by burning sensation, itching , pain, redness around affected XXXXXXX or in your case no above mention signs and symptoms, means is not suggestive for herpes infection. These four bumps on your abdomen skin can be due to several skin conditions, possible your recurrent skin condition that you had in the past. For clarification you have to consult Dermatologist and laboratory investigation ( sample with content of your blisters, complete blood count, ).
Hope this helps and I have answered your query. If you have additional queries , don’t hesitate to ask.

Best Regards,

Dr.Mihail
