Resolved Question:

Hello, I have noticed for quite awhile now that I have these small red spots in my pubic area. They do not itch and they are very small. I have not had unprotected sex so they cant be an STD but I am naturally worried by this and want to get rid of them. I recently shaved to get a better view of them

Customer: yes this is my first time. My overall health is fine
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Got it--thanks

Nothing too serious

Not herpes or genital warts or any STD

These are small areas of folliculitis--common skin infection

You can try topical Neosporin ointment twice a day for two weeks and that should clear them up

Please let me know if you need any more information
