Photo might help: Brown patches skin on penis head after circumcision at 17 years old. Probably just a hyperpigmentation as you grow older. If that is the case you don't have much to worry about. On the other hand if you have any other urinary symtoms such as burning, red urine, irritation of the skin of penis, etc. It may be worthwhile to check with your doctor. A photograph may help. Thank you and good luck!!!

Epidermoid Cyst: Epidermoid cysts are the most common type of skin cyst. They can occur anywhere on the body but tend to occur more on the face or upper trunk. The only treatment is surgical excision. Since I cannot see the lesion, see your dermatologist for a disgnosis.

Here are some...: Without a direct look, it's hard to offer accurate Dx; but the described quiescence most likely support its harmlessness. So, just watch and see, and don't pick on it. More? Seek pro-evaluation and counseling preferably by urologist. Nonetheless, following instructions in http://formefirst. Com/eNewsletter06.html will help get the healthcare done correctly as needed.

Noticed brown shiny spot on penis head. 2 DRs say irritation frm wiping frm mastrbating. 1 sex partner. No pain/puss. HPV or Herpes? How to cure it?

Noticed brown shiny spot on penis head. 2 DRs say irritation frm wiping frm mastrbating. 1 sex partner. No pain/puss. HPV or Herpes? How to cure it?

Probably not serious: For sure this isn't herpes. I suppose it could be HPV, but a new HPV lesion would be rare at your age of 39. There are many possibilities, and the large majority of skin problems of teh penis are not STDs and aren't serious. Since two doctors apparently aren't certain, consider seeing a dermatologist.

R U circumcised?: Most common cause is pain from a tight foreskin, this might respond to prescription strength steroid cream applications or require circumcision. Could be due to candida or hpv if circumcised.

Can you recommend a good cream to treat irritation on the head of your penis?

Can you recommend a good cream to treat irritation on the head of your penis?

What is the cause?: Why have you had irritated glans penis? How long has it been? Do you have long foreskin? Is there rashes? . .. These may help deducing its underlying cause. Without the above, you may still try applying antifungal + 1% hydrocortisone cream very lightly 1-2 times daily after cleansing & drying. If having a long tight foreskin, make sure to pull it down after retracting back for topical care. Best...

How to I cure a irritation on the head of my penis and a itch like bump on the shaft of my penis I just want them gone?

How to I cure a irritation on the head of my penis and a itch like bump on the shaft of my penis I just want them gone?

Possible std: Irritation can be caused by the simple things like yeast or more worrisome a sexually transmitted disease. If you are or have in the past been sexually active (with the simplest definition being your body part meets someone else's body part) you are potentially exposed to things like hpv (genital wart or cervical cancer related), chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, etc. Seek evaluation.

Bumps irritation redness and slight discoloration on penis head, help?

Balanitis: Balanitis is due to tiny amounts of urine under the foreskin. Wash it. Blot under the skin after passing urine. Castellani solution and Miconazole (clotrimazole) cream will help. Circumcision cures it and is easy to do.

I am asian. I have a black spot on my penis head. I do not feel any irritation or kind of pain from it. It appears to be under the skin. Please advise?

A lentigine?: What you described seems suggestive of harmless hyperpigmented macule, called lentigine, which is commonly seen in the penis or elsewhere on the body, is entirely benign, and needs no Rx. So, just watch it for next one year to see any change in its size, color, or level; if unchanged, that it is and is innate. Of course, if still in doubt, see Doc timely. Best wish...

Can use of Monistat topically in men, on the head of the penis, cause burning sensation/skin sensitivity and urethral irritation?

Can use of Monistat topically in men, on the head of the penis, cause burning sensation/skin sensitivity and urethral irritation?

Yes you can it: Is only the same medicine as in some antifungal creams that you would put on your skin. However, if the Monistat does not work then you need to get to a healthcare provider to get checked for infection like from a STD. It is unusual for men to get yeast infections. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Contact dermititis: Could be the soap or something in the laundry or it can a drug reaction or from intercourse or condom so there are many reasons.

HPV: Could possibly be a genital wart, it's best to see a picture or see a physician to diagnose the condition. It can be treated by cutting it, applying medicine topically or even freezing it.

Can you apply 0.5 hydrocotisone to head of penis/scrotum and between buttocks after burning and irritation from using an anti-fungal clotrimazole1%?

Can you apply 0.5 hydrocotisone to head of penis/scrotum and between buttocks after burning and irritation from using an anti-fungal clotrimazole1%?

Yes: As a follow-up to your previous question and my response, topical steroids come in different strengths and potencies. 0.5% Hydrocortisone is considered a weakly potent topical steroid (class 7) and 0.5% a low strength and available otc. Should apply a thin layer to affected area (s) 2-3x/day. More potent steroids (classes 1-6) require prescriptions and more limited use.

Partial ring of red skin just below the head of my penis. It doesn't itch or hurt at all. No stds. I'm circumsized. Irritation from masturbation? Other?

Partial ring of red skin just below the head of my penis. It doesn't itch or hurt at all. No stds. I'm circumsized. Irritation from masturbation? Other?

Foreskin Foresight: That's probably the margin where the foreskin was removed during your briss...mazel tov...So any kind of repeated friction could irritate that area. Yes possibly from masturbation, rough sex, a bottle of herring, an empty milk bottle, a sock, a baseball mitt or even a piece of liver (just ask Portnoy).I wouldn't worry too much unless it gets infected & hurts a lot. In that case, I'd lay off the herring.
