What is this bump on the right buttock?

Recommended Posts


Can someone check this and tell if I need to see a doctor today? I just found this pimple this morning on my buttock. Hurts a little though when I touch or sit. Hope it is not herpes. Please see the left corner of the pic

No one is a doctor here and herpes presents itself in many different ways so just go to a doctor and get checked out

It sure doesn't look like herpes at all.

Mate, you've not had lesions, your testing is negative, you're able to let this go.

Thanks for reviewing mate. I m not sure why am I having these issues. Just sick and tired of these concerns with the red bumps in my genitals.

      Hi people,
      I'm particularly reaching out to those who are affected in malaysia or Singapore. Due to not many support is there in our region and talking about sex or STDs is a taboo.
      I've just contracted HSV2 more than a month ago due to my negligence. It was really a tough and rough time I had at the early stages. I didn't know who to look for and talk to. 
      Google wasnt helping either. It was just scaring and killing me at almost every search. 
      I know it can be very lonely and frustrating. But I would like to help the community in my region. Which the topic Sex is a taboo and not to be spoken easily in public.
      So, anyway If you think or know that you have contracted this virus. Know the signs.
      Nerve pain : burning sensation on the skin / itching or pain
      Tiny bumps (cluster) on your side of lips or around your genital area.
      Ulcer on your genital area or anus.
      Ultimately, go and speak to your most trusted doctor. Which is very important.
      Or if you would want your check up to be anonymous. You can kindly go to 
      For anonymous & confidential STD check ups.
      Make sure to get the right medication prescriptions.
      The most common meds in Malaysia are acyclovir. 
      For affected skin area, you can get the brand Virless which is for external use.
      Extra Virgin coconut oil does help to ease the skin. But it won't help much of killing the ulcer or bumps.
      It is available at most pharmacies.
      For antiviral pills, (acyclovir) it comes in 200mg 400mg & 800mg. Please do not simply take these without getting a doctor's advise.
      There might be other types of antiviral pills out there too.
      Normally the doctor will prescribe you to take it in a 5 day course. 
      Do not abuse these meds unless your doctor says that you need more meds.
      As you need to let your immune system to build up and fight against this virus to dormant.
      Start a healthy lifestyle and diet. 
      Drink more water, more fruits and veggies.
      Stay away from fried, spicy, or sour food. It triggers it.
      Take more vitamin and supplements.
      Vit C, B, E and L-lysine 
      Treating nerve pain
      A traditional method and doesn't cost much. 
      I can't guarantee it helps. But everything is worth the try. 
      It doesn't cost much either. 
      RM22.00 for first timers.
      RM15.00 for next
      Thai Herbal Sauna
      Also, I can't guarantee it works. But what the heck. Just give it a try. 
      And don't feel alone. We're here to kick the H Ass!
      Sorry for my not so professional English.
      Correct me if I'm wrong in certain areas.

      Hi sorry i know i posted already but i have this bump that has been on my mind lately.  I have a picture of it but it wont let me put it on here.  If someone can look at possibly through email or something it would be very helpful.  I believe there is a hair inside it.  Or maybe its just the flash on my phone?  Idk i just want a second opinion.  Sorry for posting again.  To describe it, the area around it is red and the bump itself is yellowish and it looks like there is fluid.  It kinda hurts when touching not really, just enough that i feel and know its there you know?  It doesnt itch either and i believe it didnt tingle or itch before.  But the thing is that i had another bump there idk if its the exact same spot but it is in the same area.  That bump i first noticed like 4-6 weeks ago and disappeared without blistering in maybe 3 weeks.  I can send a pic however way is easiest.  Any response is greatly appreciated!

      This is my first post. I need an honest unbiased perspective on this situation concerning my current partner. I was diagnosed with herpes during a marriage in which I was faithful but he was not. It was about 7 or 8 years in that I found out about the infidelity and got tested for everything. I was + for herpes. The doctor told me there was no way to tell just how long I'd had it. To this day I dont understand why but after the doctor confirmed the diagnosis it seemed like the outbreaks got worse. I eventually went on medication. The cheating husband told me he didnt have that sh#! And treated me as if I somehow got it someother way. He eventually left me. At the age of 32 I got involved with a man several years younger than me. He showed me hiv negative status papers on our first date. I told him that I didnt have Hiv either. We later had unprotected sex several times. I did mention but did not insist on protection. I neglected to tell him about the herpes. As embarrassing as this is to admit; I didnt see a future with him, didnt really know him, and was pretty much rebounding from a 10 year long terrible marriage.  Afew weeks into it as things seemed to be getting more serious I fearfully told him that I have herpes. He was a little concerned but said it didnt matter. He wanted to pursue the relationship. Afew weeks after that he got an outbreak. We went to the doctor. He tested positive for it. He was angry with me. He was furious and to this day he feels betrayed. It's been 7 years now that I have been with him. Seven hard years. He is controlling, and abusive. He claims that he loves me- I feel that he really doesn't because of the abuse. He has honestly hurt me in some of the worst ways imaginable but everytime I try to leave or express how hurt I am he brings up "the herpes". I have apologized to him several times but it seems like no amount of apologizing will do. He says that I never "really" apologized. He says this because I have told him that I shouldn't have had sex with him period. That i regret having gotten involved with him not just because of the herpes but because of the way my life has gone down hill in many ways since he moved in. He wants sex all the time. Nearly every morning and night and it can lasts for hours. And there is no saying no. It has been this way through out the relationship. Before and after the herpes became an issue. He goes down on me even when I tell him not to- even when I tell him that I have an outbreak. He says it doesnt matter. That i shouldnt care about that since we already both have it. Its like at times it doesnt matter but at times he hates me for it. He even told my 12 year old daughter that I gave it to him once when I'd tried to end the relationship. I am sorry that he contracted this from me. Terribly sorry. My question is what am I supposed to do now. I am so confused. I have gone through so much with this person. Should herpes even be a factor in such an abusive situation? I honestly dont know how to handle this situation. He's here now. I have to go. Someone please give me some input. Thank you.

      I was just diagnosed yesterday. I’m 27 years old & as soon as I told my boyfriend he said we need a “break” which I know means he blames me & we are done. I feel completely alone and not at all optimistic about future relationships. So I understand how your feeling.

      Hi Lillian, I just tried sending you a pm but it didn't work out

      I just got my non official diagnosis yesterday & I completely understand where your coming from with the suicidal thoughts. I do think this disease is going to ruin a lot for me. If it wasn’t for my son I think I would be worse then I am. All I can do is cry but I know my son needs me to get through this & live as normally as I can. I’m sure u also have people who need u
    • doh!
      According to the National Institutes of Health in the USA, about 90 percent of adults have been exposed to the virus by age 50. If I recall correctly, around 80% have no symptoms. According to World Health Organisation  about 67 percent of the global population are infected with HSV1. More stats: About one out of five people in the United States has genital herpes. That’s more than 50 million people in the United States who have genital herpes. 85% of people with genital herpes don’t know they have it. So... is God mad at you, or is it just part of being alive on this planet? Life is a test.
      And you have it to deal with. So? So many people have much more trying tests. 
      It's not your circumstances that define you, it's your attitude to them. Think of people in concentration camps who found joy and looked to God. My God is one of love. Enough love to let me, to corrupt a book title, slouch towards Bethlehem. If I fall but pick myself up, that's what counts. If I wallow or wither, that brings to mind the story of sowing seeds in Matthew 13. There two forces in the universe. One is Love, the other Fear. Which do you choose to work with? Embarrassment is fear, self-loathing is fear. Just don't be an ass...
