I have small white bumps/pimples or boils on my testicles of the scrotum sac why ? what are the white bumps or blisters causes and are they normal can i cure it or get treatments to rid of boils.
- How not to get these pimples, bumps, cysts, lumps, blisters and boils:
- Use a hot tub, whirlpool, or swimming pool that is not properly treated with chlorine.
- Wear tight clothes.
- Use antibiotics or steroid cream for long periods.
- Use or work with substances that can irritate or block the follicles.
- Examples include makeup, cocoa butter, motor oil, tar, and creosote.
- Have an infected cut, scrape, or surgical incision. The bacteria or fungi can spread to nearby hair follicles.
- Have a disease such as diabetes or HIV that lowers your ability to fight infection

Could be Folliculitis an infection of the hair follicles.
The pimples is usually caused by bacteria, especially the type called staph (Staphylococcus). It can also be caused by yeast and another type of fungus. Folliculitis caused by a fungus is most often seen in people who have trouble fighting infections because they have an impaired immune system.
Often folliculitis develops because you have damaged your hair follicles. Shaving or wearing clothes that rub the skin can irritate the follicles.
They can also become blocked or irritated by substances like sweat, machine oils, or makeup. When the follicles are injured, the pimples or bumps are more likely to become infected.
Your doctor needs to examine bumps before he can tell what they are.
We don’t even know what they actually look like so it is totally improper to make any judgement. Talk to a online doctor to make sure.
Make sure you dry this area thoroughly after each shower, washing the area with an anti-bacterial soap when showering; apply hydrocortisone cream to the area until pimples are gone – all will help. These should decrease in frequency as you get older also.
There are normally small “bumps”,lumps,cysts,blisters or boils by the hair follicles.
But, Sebaceous/sebum cysts may arise in many areas including the scrotum when hair follicles become inflamed. These types of cysts (when no infection is present) are usually painless, smooth surfaced and contain a foul smelling, white or cheesy appearing material when the cysts boils or bumps are drained.
Each hair on your body grows out of a tiny pouch called a follicle. You can have folliculitis on any part of your body that has hair, like pubic hair and hair on testicles.
These usually pose no problem unless they become large or infected and are ONLY opened/drained by a physician.
However, I would highly recommend that you see your doctor and let him/her determine if what you have is normal, STD or needs attention.
