Bumps on the testicles, have habit of pulling hair roots over the area. Remedy?

Hi, I am 27 years old. When I was child(13-14 yrs old) I try to pull hair root on my testicles. Basically my idea was not to have hairs in that part by picking them up. After some time I start seeing the bumps. I think there are 8-10 bumps on my testicles and all of them is because of the same reason. Would you be able to provide some remedy to me? How can I get rid of those bumps??

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have multiple sebaceous cysts over scrotum.
The scrotal skin is rich in sebaceous glands and hence prone to get more sebaceous cyst due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin.
Normally they fade away without treatment however they need to be treated if increase in size or get infected.
Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical evaluation and further treatment.

Please avoid peeling off hair from scrotal skin ad ensure proper hygiene by cleaning the genitals and scrotum with warm water twice daily.
