Kindly upload images

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for asking.
I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist).

Bumps in the pubic region could be either ingrown hair (if they happen every time after shaving) or they could be an STD like Molluscum Contagiosum or Genital Warts etc if in a sexually active person.

I request you to kindly upload a few images of the affected area in "Reports Section" so that I am able to guide you better.

Awaiting...
