Red lumps on shaving shaft. Drips pus, blood on squeezing. How to get rid?

Hello, I'm a 16 year old mail and I'm having a bit of a problem that has been going on since I've been shaving. Every time I shave I shave against the grain. Since I've been Doing this I have got lots and lots of tiny bumps on my shaft. There covering most the bottom of my shaft and look really unattractive. Every time I squeeze these "lumps" a white creamy pus like substance seems to come out. If I squeeze too hard ill usually get a big, hard, red lump that drips pus and blood when I squeeze it. I was wondering how I could get rid of these lumps. They are ruining my life and I would love for them to disappear. Please help. Thank You

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I believe that you are having problems with excessive production of sebum from your sebaceous glands which are present in higher quantity in the areas that you describe and especially during adolescence and young adulthood. I believe that you will do well with medications to help with the same, if you consult a doctor and he feels that there is also some folliculitis (which is infection) and that it needs to be treated. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
