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.

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 at all like this. 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.

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

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.

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.

Infection: Genital warts or herpes could cause those symptoms. Please be evaluated by a physician and do not have sex with anyone until you are diagnosed and completely cured.

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.

Maybe normal: Your profile says you are only 17 years old. Anything that has been present for "several years? Probably is normal or at leat not harmful. Your description doesn't suggest anything serious. See a doctor to be sure.

I have a patch of small white bumps on my penis. It doesn't itch or anything. It can't be any STD because I got all except for the HPV one. What is it?

Milea, pimples: If not std could be little waxy milea, waxy buildup, like pimples, don't see it so can't be sure, scrub well when shaoer with wasthcloth and soap in future to help prevent this, not sure what you mean 'got all except hpv'? could be hpv, or herpes outbreak, see a dermatologist or urologist or infectious disease dr. To be sure.

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.

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.

Penile mass: Sinse this mass on the penis is persisting and sinse it is on the surface of the penis I think you should have it evaluated by a dermatologist
