Acne Around Genital Area

It's rare for someone to have acne around the genital area, but it does happen. If you think you have genital acne, you should absolutely see your doctor or dermatologist, if only to rule out the possibility that you have genital herpes or some other sexually transmitted disease. Don't try to pop the pimples, as you will only make the problem worse.

Be very careful about home remedies for genital acne as many simply do not work. You want to begin on the right acne treatment as soon as possible to avoid scarring around the genital area. So even if you are positive that the bumps around your genital area is really acne and not a sexual disease, see your doctor right away.

Acne around the genital area does not confine itself to either man or woman. It can happen to either.

Folliculitis is another name for acne around the genital area. And you are more likely to have Folliculitis if you wear tight pants or rough pants that constantly rub against your thighs. Folliculitis begins when hair follicles are damaged by friction from clothing, blockage of the follicle, or shaving. If the damaged follicles are infected with bacteria, it may result in acne.

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) may be another cause of acne around the genital area. HS is a chronic condition recognized by swollen, inflamed lesions in the axillae, groin, and other parts of the body that contain apocrine glands. Apocrine glands are found in the underarms, the face, scalp, ears, eyelids, and the genital area..

This condition is often caused by articles of clothing damaging the skin's surface which leads to hair follicles becoming blocked, infections developing under the skins surface, and the development of acne

The best way to treat acne around the genital area is to get rid of the infection. This is usually done by cleaning with an antiseptic. If the infection is severe, it may require antibiotics or more severe measures. A doctor can make this determination for you and prescribe the right treatment.

Once the diagnoses is taken care of and the acne treatments have begun, you want to eliminate the cause of the acne to ensure it doesn't happen again. Sometimes it can be as simple as making a few changes to your cleansing routine.

There's no doubt that acne around the genital area can be an embarrassing thing to admit and can really freak you out. But it's much better to face a little embarrassment than to suffer in silence and possibly make the acne condition worse.
