Pink colored bump

Resolved Question:

I have one small pink colored bump on lower part of my . I don't know what it is, and i doubt it is an std. I have only had one sexual encounter and it was around 9 months ago. I used a condom and the red bump only showed up a day ago. I am 17 years old and i was vaccinated for hpv with a 3 shot cycle in a 6 month period about 3 months ago. I'm just curious if you might know what it is, and if i should worry about it? And If it is serious what should be the next step i should take?

Thanks for posting your query.

I can understand your concern.

You seen to be having a bacterial infection there, it's difficult to see the lesion exactly as the image is slightly blurred.

I would recommend you take an oral antibiotic like doxycycline. Also application of mupirocin cream on the lesion will also be helpful.

You will need a prescription for the antibiotic.

If you could send me one photo, I will be able to give you a better idea of the infection.
