If : If you are sexually active then you may be dealing with an std and should see your doctor for testing. If you are not sexually active then you may be dealing with a cyst or pustule. If it has not resolved see your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment.
Good luck. ...Read more

If a specific location where a red bump on my penis is never itches, burns, crusts over, etc, can it still be herpes? Usually itches all over.

If a specific location where a red bump on my penis is never itches, burns, crusts over, etc, can it still be herpes? Usually itches all over.

Not herpes: Herpes doesn't behave like this: unlikely to cause red bump that doesn't become blister or sore and doesn't cause itching "all over". Neither does any other STD. Maybe a localized allergy or other dermatitis. See a doctor. If the "red bump" is present only now and then, talk to your doctor about arranging an immediate visit (without an advance appointment) next time it appears. ...Read more

I contracted herpes hsv 1 from a sexworker 17 years back . After the sex i develop small bumps one head of the penis which itches. for last two years?

Details matter: Hsv 1 on face??? or genital? How do you know the source? Was it cultured? Treated? Now you have something else not related to hsv. A clue is "after the sex"........what kind of sex? Condom? Lubricant or other material used by either participant? Since it appears only after sex it is not related to foreskin. Consider an irritation or allergy related to something used during sex or used by another p ...Read more

Little clear bumps on side of penis itch when popped?

Little clear bumps on side of penis itch when popped?

Rash: It sounds like you are being exposed to something you are allergic to. Try to find out the trigger. In the meantime, avoid popping them and apply Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or a mild hydrocortisone cream. See your doctor for confirmation. It is difficult to diagnose this with certainty over the Internet. All the best and I hope it resolves. ...Read more

I have red bumps on my penis head. They itch and ive had them for about 3 days. What could this be?

See answer: Most common causes of itchy, red bumps on the glans penis include: 1) "balanitis": inflammation usually associated with being uncircumcised, poor hygiene, excess moisture, and/or diabetes and due to an overgrowth of yeast/fungus; 2) contact dermatitis or allergic response to some irritant, usually chemical (e.g. spermicidal, condom, soap); or 3) dermatitis: atopic, seborrheic). Rx based on cause. ...Read more

Small volcano like bump on my penis that do not itch or hurt at all and no discharge at all?

UNclear: It is unclear as to what this is. You have not mentioned a timeline but if it is short it may be very innocuous. Would consider this might be a vein. See a urologist to verify what the structure and make a wise choice after you find out what it is. ...Read more

I have 5 bumps around my penis. I've only been with my girlfriend for the past 9 months and I do shave down there. Nothing hurts or itches. What is it?

Cannot tell: You could just have folliculitis from shaving. This is an inflammation of the hair follicles. I would see your general doctor or a gynecologist or urologist to confirm and get treatment. Stop shaving for now. ...Read more

I have tiny puss filled bumps on my penis.  It's been 2 days and it itches. What is it and what can I do to make it go away?

Herpes, folliculitis: Not enough information. Genital herpes is a consideration, but unlikely unless it started as red bumps then clear fluid blisters that then turned to pus. Maybe folliculitis. Dermatitis or allergic reaction of some sort. Yeast/fungal infection. Not knowing the cause, no way to recommend treatment. See a doctor or clinic. Do it ASAP: f herpes, diagnosis must be soon and treatment started promptly. ...Read more

Here are some ...: What you described is acute so it is related either with acute infection / inflammation or with physical / allergy-related irritation. But, regardless of its cause, the essence of care is same with keeping the affected area as clean, dry, & ventilated as possible (of course, with washing/drying) plus gingerly using antifungal + steroid cream 1-2 times daily of ...Read more

He : He may be dealing with a fungal infection aka jock itch (tinea cruris). An over the counter anti-fungal cream like Clotrimazole should help if this is in fact the problem. On the other hand, if the small red bump persists, or is very painful there may be something else going on like a genital wart, herpetic lesion, or bacterial infection (abscess). I suggest he try the Clotrimazole first, and if that does not work see a doctor.
Best of luck and happy new year. ...Read more

I have a cluster of yellow little bumps around the head of my penis and some on my shaft it itches at night and skin is scaly and sheds when erect ?

Yeast? Herpes??: This sounds like a yeast infection or nonspecific inflammation under the foreskin, especially if uncircumcised and the bumps are not painful. However, genital herpes also is a possibility -- more likely if pain, if the bumps started like clear fluid blisters, or if pain or swelling in the groin. See a doctor to be certain and get appropriate treatment, ASAP (within 1-2 d) for best diagnosis & Rx. ...Read more

Hi i've noticed a itchy bump on the top of my foreskin of my penis right were the foreskin meets the head and it itches I have never had sex before?

May be...: Without detailed hx and direct inspection, it's hard to come up a confirmative dx. But what may happen in the described scenario may be inflammation related with redundant foreskin. So, keep the area clean and dry as much as possible and see. If persisting, see doc timely. Meanwhile, avoid overly physical or chemical stimulation in case you have masturbated. ...Read more
