Is it possible to get a pimple on your groin?

Last updated on August 28, 2020



I was wondering if it is possible to get something like a pimple right below the shaft of your penis on your groin because that is what it looks like for me. It looks like a small reddish dot that doesn’t itch or anything. I know that it is not Fordyce spots because I know what those look like.


It is possible to get a pimple just about anywhere on your body, your groin included. That is because a pimple is bacteria trapped in a blocked oil gland. Your skin is covered with oil glands which keeps your skin flexible. But during your teenage years, the glands can become over productive and easily gets clogged.

Get a small cotton ball, soak it with hydrogen peroxides and clean the pimple and the area twice a day. You should see an improvement in a day or so. If that doesn’t work, you can try something stronger, like an antibiotic ointment, but since these contain grease, it won’t help your clogged pores. If gets a lot worse, then you might have to see a doctor for something even stronger. But the vast majority of the time it will go away in a few days.
