Under my penis (my head) is 2 swollen bumps?

Do you think my skin under my penis head is swollen because I bandaged it up because of sores from folliculitis on my head? Two days ago it was fine

Infected?: You shouldn't get folliculitis on the head of your penis. Folliculitis is an infection of hair follicles and there are no hair follicles there.

My penis head and foreskin is red and swollen. Should I be worried??

Infection? STD?: It's not possible to judge the cause based only on this description. Maybe an STD if at risk. If an infection of any kind, amoxicillin probably is NOT the best antibiotic. Do not try to treat it yourself with amoxicillin or anything else, and do not rely on a pharmacist's advice (common in some countries, although I don't know about the Philippines. Get professional health care. Good luck! ...Read more
