    IllBeing: Every few months these lumps appear, I can pop them and pus will shoot out followed by blood.

    They can be very large, eventually they go away but they do come back about 2 months later.

    How do I get rid of them?

    You get rid of them by ignoring them. They'll go away on their own.

    Not all guys get them, many do. They are harmless manifestations of puberty.

    Don't pick or scratch them - you could introduce infection and then you'd have a problem.

    Just know they are normal and harmless and soon they'll be a memory.

    IllBeing: But they are really ugly and no girl is going to go near it when its full of lumps.

    Is there a quick way to be rid of them or a way to prevent them?

    Tender: well my guess would be that you should wash with something for acne.
    sounds like infected hair folicles or pores.

    keep in mind some things could burn, so experiement.
    washing more frequently, changing more often, wearing loser clothing such as boxers, and if you shave-stop for awhile.
    dont use any oil based lubes or lotions. avoid soap which has alot of dye perfume ect that can cause skin reactions.

    also after they pop, try putting diaper rash ointment with zinc oxide on the sores. they will heal faster.

    Just to be on the safe side, go get checked out by a doctor, especially because these lumps are recurring. Until then, be hypervigiliant about keeping your area clean. Washing very well is a plus; you should also get some baby powder (or even Gold Bond medicated drying powder -- readily available in most drug and discount stores) and sprinkle a bit down south or in your boxers, just to make sure everything stays dry and fresh.

    I've heard of something like this resulting from a badly-done circumcision, leaving internal pockets that easily get infected. I presume that would need an experienced urologist to diagnose.

    I was hoping someone would suggest this! Trying to treat 'it' when you you don't know what 'it' is can be ineffective at best, dangerous at worst. Talk to a doctor, dude; he's paid to know what the problem is.

    I think the suggestion to get it checked out by a physician is a good one, you don't want to take chances with your health, nomatter what. In all likelihood, it is only a form of acne that will clear up in time, but why not be sure! Sometimes little things left unchecked can turn into bigger problems in the future, have someone who knows what they're doing give you some sound advice.

    That was fairly terse. Actually lots of poorly-done circumcisions have such results. The damage ranges from cosmetic (skin tags) to death. (One boy was a hemophiliac who received bad blood, so in at least one case, circumcision caused AIDS.)

    Yeah, don't treat what you can't diagnose.
