If: If you are sexually active then you may be dealing with an std and should see your doctor for testing. If you are not sexually active then you may be dealing with a cyst or pustule. If it has not resolved see your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment. Good luck.

See dr.: It is difficult to diagnose a skin condition without visualizing it. I suggest a visit to your PCP or a dermatologist.

See answer: Most common causes of itchy, red bumps on the glans penis include: 1) "balanitis": inflammation usually associated with being uncircumcised, poor hygiene, excess moisture, and/or diabetes and due to an overgrowth of yeast/fungus; 2) contact dermatitis or allergic response to some irritant, usually chemical (e.g. spermicidal, condom, soap); or 3) dermatitis: atopic, seborrheic). Rx based on cause.

Here are some. ..: What you described is acute so it is related either with acute infection / inflammation or with physical / allergy-related irritation. But, regardless of its cause, the essence of care is same with keeping the affected area as clean, dry, & ventilated as possible (of course, with washing/drying) plus gingerly using antifungal + steroid cream 1-2 times daily of

Tough to say: Diagnosing rashes over the computer is very hard. Little "pinkish whitish dots" do not sound too worrisome, but see a dr. For a history and physical. Best wishes.

I am experiencing penile discharge, unpleasant smell, itching, penis head is very sensitive, dried smegma, white lumps, Ureaplasma urealyticum? Doxycy

STD? Balanitis?: Probably an STD, much more likely gonorrhea or chlamydia than Ureaplasma, which is a normal bacteria in the genital tract and rarely causes symptoms or disease of any kind. If uncircucised, this might be fungal or nonspecific balanitis, not an STD and might clear up with twice daily foreskin retraction and washing. Either way, you need professional exam and probably STD testing. Good luck!

See a dermatologist: Lentigo Simplex and Penile Lentiginosis present as flat brown to black spots on the penis with irregular borders. They are not malignant BUT Lentigo Maligna (Hutchinson melanotic freckle) and melanoma may look similar to Lentigo Simplex. The presence of several spots makes melanoma less likely, but to be on the safe side have a dermatologist examen them to be certain.
