Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com I understand your concern. I have reviewed the pictures that you sent. It looks like a bacterial infection and can be resolved by applying Mupirocin ointment 2-3 times daily.

Kindly mention if there is any exposure to STDs in the follow-ups. Hope this was helpful, Regards.

Patient: Where can I get Mupirocin ointment at. And I have had unprotected sex but the girl had just been texted and was clean so Im pretty sure I haven't been exposed to any stds. And what is aloo posto?
Doctor: Hello,
Sorry for the typo earlier.
If she is clean, then there is nothing to worry about. The bump is probably due to a bacterial infection which is common, and Mupirocin ointment needs prescription, you can request your local GP to prescribe you the same.

The swelling should resolve within a weeks time. As STDs have been ruled out, there is nothing major to worry about. Kindly apply Mupirocin and let me know in a weeks time if it resolves.

Please feel free to discuss any other queries you have,

Sebaceous cysts are slightly bigger, it doesn't look like a cyst.
