Simple skin conditions

grapes There are many types of bumps and changes of skin in the genitals which are just normal variations of human anatomy.

Some skin changes can be easily linked to starting a new medication, soap product or skin treatment. If in doubt, avoid that product or if it is a medication, contact the person who prescribed it for advice.

In-growing hairs and blocked pores (e.g. sebaceous glands) can cause harmless skin bumps which clear by themselves without requiring special treatment.

If an area of skin becomes painful, grows bigger or changes you should seek medical advice.

If in doubt, please visit your GP.
