Thank you. The bumps have gone away and there is a clear hair where they were, so I’m sure it was folliculitis.
Oddly enough, during this healing phase I developed 2 red areas on my scrotum (1 on each side). No pain, discomfort, bumps, blisters, etc. very minor itching – but that may be mental. Clear borders of the red skin vs normal; and zero redness on the skin that divides the scrotum.
Doctor said it was contact dermatitis and prescribed hydrocortisone – the red areas have faded but now the entire scrotum is red. I saw a dermatologist and she said she isn’t sure but it’s not infectious and may be red scrotum syndrome. Just nervous if this is related or completely unrelated to herpes? I’m assuming it’s not…especially as RSS can often be brought on by stress/anxiety…that may be it.
