I have 6 bumps one right under my belly button 3 on my belt line(lower stomach) 2 in my pubic hairs and one on the very bottom of my penis. It was very itchy ..It has been a week seems like the one under my belly button is healing pretty good the others are not. I was wondering what this could be and any other treatments i should try ??
