User rating for this question
Hi, I am 42 male, I found several small black bumps that are lumpy like blisters running along side the seam from my anus to scrotum. It feels like a slight swelling in the area and I have had a small issue with irregular bowel movements lately. Any idea what the bumps may be? Im straight, and have no known stds

Brief Answer: Saw the photo Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome back. Thanks for the photograph. I can see a linear fissure with a lot of scabs. These black scabs are healing small wounds. By irregular bowel movements did you mean constipation or loose motions ? Have you applied any creams or any new wipes recently ? Any enema given ? It is not fordyce's spots, steatocystoma, keratosis pilaris or any STD like molluscum contagiosum. I feel that applying an antibiotic ointment like mupirocin 2% or neosporin thrice a day will cure your condition provided the bowel problem is settled. Don't pick on the scabs. Apply vegetable oil several times to keep the skin oily and supple. Hope this helped, Take care.
