We develop red bumps on the genitalia - penis and scrotum for men and between the labia and anus or on the thighs for women. The bumps soon open up and ulcerate. Ladies may have a burning or painful sensation while urinating or passing a bowel motion.
The following may also be observed additionally:
•The ulcers may vary in size and
are usually between a quarter to 2 inches wide.
•The ulcers have a soft centre
which is gray or yellowish-gray with well defined edges.
•The ulcers may bleed easily on
•Pain during sexual
intercourse or urination.
•Swelling in the groin at a point
lower abdomen and thigh meet.
•Swollen lymph nodes which may
lead to large abscesses or collections of pus, which open
up, drain and form ulcers.
