What Causes Blackish Bumps On The Scrotum?

default
Posted on Fri, 14 Oct 2016
Question: Hello, I am curious about the black, pimple-like, bumps on my scrotum. I only noticed this today, there is no itching or pain. I am sexually active and therefore I am concerned this may be a STD. Can you please let me know if this is irregular? I would go to a primary care physician, but plan to be traveling for work through Tuesday.

Brief Answer:
It is not STD

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day , I've reviewed the images

Dear Sir,

First and foremost let me reassure it is not a infection process/ STD. The lesion is due to inspissated secretion and retention of the sebum and secretion below the skin . The blackening is due to oxidation of sebum . Do not worry , no active treatment is required. A routine consultation with Dermatologist is all that is needed.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Take Care

Best Regards
Dr Shobha Deepak
