I get small black pimple like bumps on my penis if I try to pick them off they bleed and leave a scar. What do you recommend?

Your description: Is clear, but its implication requires an expert to look at the lesions. 'black' + 'bleeding' in any skin lesion warrants inspection by a dermatologist. Infectious, cancerous, and benign moles can all be the cause that I can't tell from here, but they can. There is a group in your city with a 'pigmented nevus clinic'. ..Choose a dermatologist or go there. ...Read more

Might be ok: It would be hard to tell as always in this format, but some things that can cause bumps on the penis include genital warts, moles and even freckles (depending on what sun exposure you get). Either way the question could easily be answered by seeing a doctor and if the bumps were genital warts can be easily treated (and should be!). ...Read more

Found a bump with a black center on it three days ago on the foreskin of my penis. Tried popping it as if it's acne. I still removed it. What is it?

Found a bump with a black center on it three days ago on the foreskin of my penis. Tried popping it as if it's acne. I still removed it. What is it?

Probably acne: The description sounds like a blackhead (also called an open comedone). That means the clump of skin cells is open to the outside air. The air reacts with the tip of the clump of skin cells so it darkens. Comedones can naturally occur in places such as the scalp, the face, the upper back, the upper chest, plus in and around pubic hair areas. Skin acne includes comedones. ...Read more

I have swollen lymph node on groin and small bumps on shaft of penis wich has black dot in centre, also had bumps on scrotum that burst and healing?

Of course, it is hard to give 100% right diagnosis without a direct look at them. More? Seek evaluation & counseling. ...Read more

Healing takes time: The itching can continue for weeks after treatment and peeling is normal. Try a calamine lotion and over the counter antihistamines such as Zyrtec or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the itching. Also a topical hydrocortisone cream can be helpful for itching. Vaseline can help with peeling. Remember to repeat the treatment in about 2 weeks and treat your family members as well. ...Read more
