Penis spots: Penis spots can be many things. Some STDs, some not. Only general advice can be given without a photo or physical exam. Top 2 photos are non-STDs: Fordyce spots (sebum which can be extricated by M.D. or left alone), Infected hair follicle (plucked and kept clean).

STD or fungal infxn: This could be a form of fungal infection (tinea or 'jock itch'), which would respond to OTC antifungal medicine like tolnaftate or terbinifine. Pustules on the penis are of more concern — unless these go away quickly with antifungal treatment, please get yourself checked for a sexually transmitted disease (STD) ...Read more

Can HPV that causes warts on genital area on man could also cause cancer as well or is it just warts? I have a red mark on penis and small white dots

Can HPV that causes warts on genital area on man could also cause cancer as well or is it just warts? I have a red mark on penis and small white dots

Possibly: Penile cancers are strongly associated with hpv infection (meaning most men with penile cancer have hpv). It is important to note that most men with hpv do not, however, go on to develop penile cancer, and men with penile cancer are typically much older than 21 years of age. If you have concerns, please see your doc or visit a clinic and undergo a physical exam to learn exactly what you do have. ...Read more

No "sex play"?: If you have no contact with another sexually, then std less likely as source of symptoms (which were not well explained in q). More likely tinea / yeast ("jock itch") flare up. If still present, should see your dr for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Sensation tip of penis but not during urinating and prev itching of genital area now gone . is this an STD? not happening at once. only 1 partner.

Sensation tip of penis but not during urinating and prev itching of genital area now gone . is this an STD?  not happening at once. only 1 partner.

Unlikely STD: Itching in genital area is more likely related to contact allergy or possibly a yeast infection, especially if symptoms have resolved. A penile discharge or pain with urination is more suspect for STD infection. Either way, it is always wise to use condoms with sex and get baseline STD and HIV testing in individuals that are sexually active. ...Read more

Can I cut off or use wart remover to remove scar tissue from a healed cut at the base of my penis I nicked myself a few times while shaving my genital area. After the small cuts healed, scar tissue grew and they look like skin tags?

Is it possible that a couple tiny red dots (not blisters) on underside of penis that only lasted 3 days were recurrent genital herpes?

Is it possible that a couple tiny red dots (not blisters) on underside of penis that only lasted 3 days were recurrent genital herpes?

Probably not: Almost certainly this isn't herpes, which doesn't cause "red dots" that don't become blisters or open sore. And no herpes outbreak can heal entirely in only 3 days; 7-10 days is the minimum. If you have been diagnosed with genital herpes, follow your doctor's advoce about management. If worried about herpes but not diagnosed, the "red dots" don't suggest you have it. ...Read more

I had some itchy blisters in the front of my genital area where the hair follicles are 2 weeks ago. I see 3 new blisters in the same area. What is it??

Herpes?: The first issue that was should be considered is herpes. Unless these are pustules and there is redness in the area suggesting cellulitis then this would be the most likely dx. You should show your doctor to get a confirmatory dx. consider yourself contagious and do not have sex in the interim.

I have a bump/sore/blister on my groin, just in between my thigh and genital area. Size of a dime. After three weeks, it has not changed.

Could be infection: Please have a doctor look at it. Syphilus begins as a painless ulcer. Other skin infections can cause a sore blister or papule bump, too, like folliculitis, infection around the hair follicles.

I have a blister like rash around my genital area but 3 of my doctor said it looks like rash from shaving but worried it might be genital herpes?

Get it tested.: To be sure it is not genital herpes, it would be wise to get this tested. A smear/swab and tissue culture can make sure of the diagnosis. A tzank prep. Would show special cells called giant cells. However, if 3 doctors were not convinced, you might want to just wait a while. Genital herpes has other symptoms, like discharege, and swelling of the lymph nodes of the pelvis so be sure. ...Read more

Herpetic whitlow?: If this is what you have, its most likely from contact with hsv-2-infected genitals! unless you're a health care worker. Pompholyx (dyshidrotic eczema, vesicular eczema) is unlikely if there is no itching. Less likely due to pustular psoriasis, bullous pemphigoid; vasculitis allergica. ...Read more
