1 Dime size, no head pimple/blister between scrotum and anus. 2 weeks. Friction from tennis and sweat? Std!?

Sebaceous cyst?: An STD is a very unlikely cause of this sort of problem. More likely an inflamed (infected?) sebaceous cyst or something similar. See a doctor if it doesn't clear up in another week or so. Or sooner if it continues to enlarge, becomes sore, and ASAP if fever or spreading redness. (Your concern about STD suggests you may be at risk, so get tested to be safe. But not the cause of this problem.) ...Read more

I had a friction blister on my penis and popped it without thinking. What should I do to treat it? Neosporin?

I had a friction blister on my penis and popped it without thinking. What should I do to treat it? Neosporin?

Vaseline is better: I would avoid activity that would involve more friction with your penis for at least a week. I would recommend applying vaseline or aquaphor ointment daily. Neosporin might be okay, but I have seen many people have an allergic reaction to Neosporin. Also, it's unusual to get a friction blister on the penis. I would recommend having this evaluated by a dermatologist, especially if this recurs. ...Read more

What's a friction blister?

Friction blister: Intense rubbing can cause a blister, as can any friction on the skin if continued long enough. This kind of blister is most common after walking long distances or wearing a poorly-tuned new pair of shoes. Blisters are most common on the hands and feet, as these extremities are susceptible while walking, running, or performing repetitive motions. ...Read more

I had sex with my wife, oral too, after I had a red blister on my fore skin, its painless, its been two days, friction blister? Help please

Yes: Most likely this is from vigorous sex with friction. Keep it clean with soap and water, apply a little Neosporin or bacitracin until healed. If it doesn't heal in 5-7 days, or you get more of them, see your doctor. Use of a lubricant such as KY jelly can help prevent this. Good luck! ...Read more

The skin came off a friction blister 10 days ago been putting neo and bandage on it. It's starting to itch badly and has small red patches in it. Help?

Normal healing: When our bodies sustain an injury, the immediate response is inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling). This is the body bringing healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. The nerves in the area respond to this inflammation in varying intensity as things heal from pain to itching and possibly with numbness. This is a normal part of healing. ...Read more
