May be: Fordyce spots, which visible sebaceous(oil) glands that are present in most individuals particularly on the genitals. It's hard to say though without visualizing the lesions. Your best bet is to at least see your primary care doctor if not a dermatologist. ...Read more

There are numerous treatments available, both topical and systemic. The most commonly used are benzoyl peroxide, retinoids, and antibiotics ...Read more

Oh NO! It's the drea: I'll bet that headline caught your eye! really, without an examination, no online consultant can give you help. Except to tell you to use a condom when you are having sex with a partner that could infect you with an std. Unprotected sex makes you a parent, or a man who worries about stds. If your partner is absolutely safe and monogamous, then see a doctor for accurate diagnosis. Be safe out there. ...Read more

Spot on penis: I think you should go back and have a doctor check this out. STIs can run in packs, and if you were exposed to one, you could have been exposed to another. Genital warts can be painless, and they are very common. An ingrown hair would usually be painful. Herpes is usually very painful too, so it's probably not that. Syphilis can be painless, but usually looks more like a shallow ulcer. Good luck! ...Read more
