I have red itchy bumps on my penis and more keep showing up. My doctor gave me a cream for mite bites and I applied it, but the bumps are not going away. What should I do?

Something else: Mites bites or more likely scabies would not likely be restricted to the penis alone. Sometimes a yeast infection may produce itching especially if you are uncircumcised. Be sure to check if your female partner may have a yeast infection and therefore infecting you. If you use a condom, be sure that you are not allergic to latex or rubber. ...Read more

Here are....: Does your foreskin cover your head of penis? If yes, make sure to pull back foreskin for cleansing with no overuse of soap or physical stimulation and drying daily especially after sex. And see if improving. If necessary, anti-fungal/steroid cream may be used lightly daily for 3-5 days. If not helping, see doc timely for detail. Note: it's hard to give accurate DX without seeing the penis. ...Read more

I use to have itchy clusters of bumps on my penis after masturbation. What is d cause and cure?

Skin reaction: Sounds like these are some type of local irritation which could have several causes. It is possible to get these types of lesions just from the rubbing and physical trauma to the skin. In this case, extra water based lubricant would be the answer, and don't be as rough with yourself. If you are using lubricants, this could also be the cause - some of them have additives/chemicals that could cause. ...Read more

Inflamed bumps on the skin of my penis and skin around my testies. No pain, no fluid coming out. Just itchy bumps around there. Get bigger when I itch?

Molluscum: Many diagnoses can produce bumps (called "papules") and all of these are possibilities. You Ned to see a dermatologist, and also a possible visit to a urologist. Without being able to see the lesions, you have omitted the principal advantage a dermatologist has over non dermatologists. I would suggest a visit to a dermatologist a sap. ...Read more

Suffering from dry flaky skin on the penis. Used my wife's monistat 4 wks ago due to itchy bumps cause she had a yeast infec. What is wrong with me?

Dermatitis?: This might just be healing of your apparent penile yeast infection. Or some other dermatitis. It doesn't sound serious, and no STD would do this. Beyon that, there's no way to judge the cause in any more detail. Get professionally evaluated if it continues and/or you remain concerned. ...Read more

21y Male Itching balls, then flat red rash on penis head, now few itchy bumps on balls (1cm each) itchy Rash on inner thighs Itch mostly @ night?

May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor. ...Read more

I have red itchy bumps on my pubic area im real worried but they don't seem to be an STD they look more like boils and there on my penis I just started using antibiotic cream and they dry out what should I do

I have red itchy bumps on my pubic area im real worried but they don't seem to be an STD they look more like boils and there on my penis I just started using antibiotic cream and they dry out what should I do

It: It sounds like they are responding to the antibiotic cream, however that may not be enough. You are likely dealing with abscesses or boils. Did you recently shave? This is a common precursor to infection. Please visit your doctor because std'd still need to be ruled out. If it is bacterial your doctor may put you on oral antibiotics. It is always best to have a doctor examine you in these types of instances.
Good luck. ...Read more
