Bump On Penis Shaving Area
No: I am puzzled as to why anyone would want to shave there. It is a silly fad which you will drop as you become an adult. ...Read more
Ingrown hairs: Those are ingrown hairs due to shaving too close to the skin. Modern razors are so good, they actually shave *below* the skin surface, which sets up ingrown hairs. Use a single-blade razor or electric razor and shave with the grain, not against it. You won't get as close a shave, but that's the idea. ...Read more
Do they go away?: If these bumps go away in the next few days, it is likely that they are from the friction of intercourse and are NOT dangerous. If they are blisters (water-filled), wart-like, bleed, hurt, or persist, please see your doctor as they could be something that requires treatment, such as a sexually transmitted disease, or other illness. Good health! ...Read more
White bumps on the meatus opening on the penis head. Smaller white bumps on the surrounding area. What could it be?
Am a virgin
Pearly papules?: Angiofibromas called penile pearly papules, sebaceous cysts, mulloscum contagiosum, Tyson's glands, Fordyce spots, folliculitis, to name a few benign skin lesions. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1058826-overview Please visit your PMD or Dermatologist for confirmation and treatment. ...Read more
Could this be a genital wart? Small lump on penis shaft near circumcision line. No pus, discharge, itching, etc.
Bacterial infection?: It could be a small bacterial infection or ingrown hair. Use warm soaks several times a day and see a doctor if it gets worse. This shaving trend worries me. Besides making people look like jail-bait, it can increase the risk of bacterial infections, including mrsa. I've seen some nasty cases in which men lost parts of their body they wanted to keep. If you don't like pubes, trim, don't shave! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bump under skin, above penis where pubic hair grows. Slight redness, hard, and pain when pushed on. Concerns?
Doctor can evaluate: Bumps and rashes are difficult to visualize in words. Rashes or bumps may be folliculitis, which is an infection in the little hair follicles in the skin. Rashes that itch a lot may be allergic reactions and/or skin infections. An STD is possible. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate to decide on a diagnosis and talk about treatment options. ...Read more
Wart or skin tag: Without seeing that bump, we can only speculate whether it's a benign skin tag or infectious wart or something else. Go see your Family Doc or local health department. Blisters would make me think of herpes while ulcers would make me think of nastier sexually transmitted diseases/infections. If you're engaging in sex, be sure to wrap it up for both your sake each & every time. ...Read more
Itchy pubic area directly above clitoris. Clitoral hood has a weird blister or raw lesion. Rawness between labia minora and majora. No STDs or stis?
You need an exam: Your symptoms are suggestive of a herpes simplex infection (sexually transmitted), but yeast (not sexually transmitted) may cause similar symptoms of rawness and itching. If you also have a white, cottage cheese-like discharge, it is more likely to be yeast. The bottom line is that you need to have an exam done by a health professional. And no sex until you find out! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It should heal fine: Assuming your immune function is normal, this should not be a cause for alarm. Any time there is a cut, you should try to clean the area, (water works the best for minor cuts at home). Then pat the area dry and if needed cover with a bandaid. Watch the area for redness surrounding the cut, or any puss like discharge from the wound. If you think there is an infection, see a physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
