Small bumps in pubic area, bleeding on popping, unprotected sex. Sexually transmitted disease?

Hello, About 2 weeks ago I started getting small bumps some close together in my pubic area. They first start off red with a tiny whitehead and over time they turn skin color. If I try to pop them it takes a little effort and then they bleed profusely and takes some time to stop the bleeding . They do not itch or have any symptoms what so ever except the fact that they are there. I do have unprotected sex with my girlfriend but everything I read or seen doesn t seem to match with an std . Hopefully you can help me out and clear my mind of what these things are. If you need a picture I am able to provide one.

Hi dear thanks for the question,from the picture you provided it doesn't seems to be a STD,since STD will first involve your penis or urethra ,before involving pubic area,what your having is infection of the hair follicles ,may be one ,to or many in numbers.you are advised to take a course of antibiotic for a week ,and if they don't disappear ,then consult some dermatologist to know exactly what they are.

Hi there. A photograph would greatly help & should you prefer discretion, feel free to use our premier 'ask-a-specialist' feature. From your history, distribution & description of the rash & skin lesions, i would think that you suffer from either molluscum contagiosum (which may or may not be classified as an STD depending n the site & modus of aquisition) or pseudofolliculitis barbae (ingrown hais) or viral warts (again may or may not be an STD). All these 3 conditions may bleed on 'popping' them. unprotected sex may suggest that you aquired them from your girlfriend or have passed them onto her. Please do get both of you'll looked at by a dermatologist (you certainly) & perhaps these lesions can be easily treated using an electrocautery or hyfrecator machine under local anaesthesia in an OPD setting! Cheers & Please do practice safe sex & get your partner/s treated as well.
