When I wake up in the morining I'll do my normal rutiene and everything but when I go to get in the shower I see small red bumps at the base of my pubes. Some come and go but the one I have now has been here fore a while.
I think they are just in-grown pubes but I don't think they would be this frequent.
I'm not currently sexualy acctive so I'm pretty sure its not any form of an STD.
Do you know whats going on?

I found 1 red bump too. But I don't know what you mean by "base of - pubes". I think pubic hair is as low as you can get.

Well, some STIs can be dormant for a while before showing any symptoms, so it's worth getting it checked out. However, it is quite likely that you are just describing ingrown hairs-- have it looked at just to be on the safe side, but don't panic about it, as things are likely just fine.
