ok
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 7 days ago.

Is it at all sore?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
not at all no
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 7 days ago.

Not herpes or a genital wart or any kind of STD or infection there

And totally benign

Just an epidermal inclusion cyst from a blocked oil gland

No need for treatment at this point since these usually go away on their own in a short time

Please let me know if you need any more information
