The bumps itch real bad some times. I have never had an STD but the bumps concern me. I have busted them and they bust like a pimple .They are tear drop shaped. What are these bumps and how can I get rid of them?

General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi ! Most likely you have multiple sebaceous cysts of the scrotal skin, which are getting infected after you scratch them. Do not try to scratch them. They are formed due to blockage of the sebaceous glands from where the secretion called sebum can not get drained and gets accumulated. They are benign problems except for discomfort as you have and they are not due to STD. However, if you are sexually active, then you should go for some investigations after consulting your family physician who may also advise you to consult a surgeon for their removal. Wishing you an early recovery.
