I have 2 raised red bumps on base of penis?

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are hard to describe and hard to visualize in words. Rashes of bumps at the base of the penis may be blackheads (comedones) or 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. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate to decide on a diagnosis and talk about treatment options. ...Read more

Just watch and see..: Based on what you described, it is reasonable to just watch, wait, and see how this white bump may evolve over the next 5-7 days - change in number, size, feeling, etc. If yes, have doc take a direct look so to deduce right diagnosis and care. Clinically, it may be just a pimple. ...Read more

I have a bump at the base of penis that looks + feels like a zit. Hurts to masturbate, doesn't hurt to pee. What could this be?

May be just an acne: It's most likely just an infected hyperactive sebaceous gland like an acne on the face. Its occurrence will not affect how you urinate, but give you some local pain & irritation. It tends to recur once infection once took place; so, it may require surgical ablation or excision. But, without inspection / palpation, it's still hard to give an accurate Dx. So, see Doc for sure detail and care. Best.. ...Read more

Self-treatment includes avoiding irritation by clothing or shaving; moist heat compresses; proper hygiene with antiseptic cleanser; and topical antibiotic (mupirocin, neomycin, and bacitracin with polymyxin B). If no better in 2-4 days or worsens, an oral antibiotic may be needed ...Read more

You need to be checked for confirmation and if present, will need treatment to prevent further spread to yourself and sexual partners. ...Read more

My male friend has clear liquid filled bumps on the base of his penis, does this sound like herpes?

Blisters: It certainly could be. He should go to his doctor or a dermatologist and have them cultured to establish a definitive diagnosis. Other possibilities exist, such as contact dermatitis but his doctor could distinguish between different possibilities by his history and symptoms. If it is herpes simplex, there is suppressive therapy that you both could be on. ...Read more
