Help! Sometimes itchy red bumps on penile shaft. Is this herpes?

Help! Sometimes itchy red bumps on penile shaft. Is this herpes?

Not: You will likely end up with pain than itching. Make sure you are not allergic to latex (if you use latex condom or any vaginal preparations) in case of oral sex, toothpaste or mouthwash used by the performing partner. I presume you are asking this question on behalf of your partner

Yeast: A yeast infection, more common in uncircumsiced males can lead to candida infection. This is treatable with topical anti yeat medications such as nizoral, Lamisil (terbinafine) or oral agents if necessary.

Fungus?: May be an early fungal infection vs early wart appearance. Can either try topical antifungal (like lotrimin (clotrimazole) / micatin) for few days and see if improves, or see your dr / urgent care / "std clinic" dr for exam, diagnosis and treatment. Good luck.

Get it checked: While it may be something minor it could be something else. If you've been sexually active see a doctor.

Possible reaction: This is a nonspecific finding. Could there have been a skin reaction to condom, spermatacide cream, detergents? Has your partner had a vaginal infection, std or significant discharge? Apparently you haven't seen any blistering suggesting herpes. If skin changes persist, consult a dermatologist for evaluation.

Get checked out: It could be many things. Scabies, yeast, reaction to condoms. I would change condoms (if you're using them), try an over the counter jock itch medication and if not better see a urologist.

Penile pimple: This could be many things -- a pimple, and epidermal cyst, a pearly papule -- all benign, or something that may require treatment like a vesicle due to the herpes virus -- it is best to have it examined by your physician.

HSV?: Clear blisters on the penis suggest hsv infection (genital herpes). Have you had sexual activity that may have transmitted the virus? The "white stuff" under the foreskin may just represent residual semen, so the recommendation would be improved hygiene especially after masturbation.

Bumps on the penis: The most common sexually transmitted disease is condyloma, which presents as flesh-colored or tan-brown bumps. These bumps can be anywhere on the penis, the scrotum, or in the pubic area. There are several other causes of bumps on the penis, including lichen planus, that are not contagious. An evaluation by a dermatologist is recommended.
