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. ...Read more

I have red bumps on my penis head. They itch and ive had them for about 3 days. What could this be?

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. ...Read more

I have little red bumps on my penis head and it just itches and ive had for about 3 days. What could this be from?

Here are some. ..: What you described is acute so it is related either with acute infection / inflammation or with physical / allergy-related irritation.

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! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Yeast? Herpes??: This sounds like a yeast infection or nonspecific inflammation under the foreskin, especially if uncircumcised and the bumps are not painful. However, genital herpes also is a possibility -- more likely if pain, if the bumps started like clear fluid blisters, or if pain or swelling in the groin. See a doctor to be certain and get appropriate treatment, ASAP (within 1-2 d) for best diagnosis & Rx. ...Read more

Hi I've noticed a itchy bump on the top of my foreskin of my penis right were the foreskin meets the head and it itches I have never had sex before?

May be...: Without detailed hx and direct inspection, it's hard to come up a confirmative dx. But what may happen in the described scenario may be inflammation related with redundant foreskin. So, keep the area clean and dry as much as possible and see. If persisting, see doc timely. Meanwhile, avoid overly physical or chemical stimulation in case you have masturbated. ...Read more

I contracted herpes hsv 1 from a sexworker 17 years back. After the sex I develop small bumps one head of the penis which itches. For last two years?

Details matter: Hsv 1 on face??? or genital? How do you know the source? Was it cultured? Treated? Now you have something else not related to hsv. A clue is "after the sex"........what kind of sex? Condom? Lubricant or other material used by either participant? Since it appears only after sex it is not related to foreskin. Consider an irritation or allergy related to something used during sex or used by another p ...Read more

2 days ago I got what looks like a rash on the head of my penis it itches like crazy me and my girlfriend have no STD of any kind any thoughts?

Many possibilities: Most genital skin rashes are not STDs, and your description doesn't sound like an STD. Some likely to itch are eczema, scabies, contact dermatitis or other allergy, psoriasis (especially if you have psoriasis elsewhere). It could be a fungal or bacterial infection, especially if you are uncircumcised. Whatever the cause, it isn't likely to be serious. See a doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
