Lump with a white head inside the scrotum sack oozing blood, rash between legs. Worrisome?

I reciently found a lump inside my scrotum sack. Ive had an ichy rash between my leggs befor this I thought was from ridding bikes and heat rash. This lump grew very quickly a day or two, and seemed to form a little white head. Now I just noticed it s oozed some blood I guess or whatever is inside it. I dont know if it s good that it s draining or not. But I have about 4 days suply of Amoxillin, and thought I would give it a try. It seems to be helping the rash. Should I be real concerned about this?? Thanks.

Hi there.

From your history & clinical description, the 'lump' seems to be either an abscess or a cystic lesion that is secondarily infected. Go ahead with the may resolve the problem; you may want to add on some anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen the dose depending on your body weight & your local pharmacist should be able to help you.

The rash between the thighs appears fungal. Do give a 2% ketoconazole cream (eg nizoral) a try application locally twice/day for a week.

If no respite in 48 hrs, do see your local GP. That abscess may require to be incised & drained which should be a small procedure easily taken care of in a GP clinic outpatient.

Cheers & wish you good luck, speedy recovery & greaat biking days ahead!!

A 'quickly growing' lump there could mean infection or blood. Improvement with amoxil suggests infection is more likely.
Sebaceous cysts are common here.
'Rash' could be fungus infection
It doesn't sound alarming / A dermatologist or GP must see for proper assessment and assistance.
Take care
Good luck
