About two months ago I pulled a hair from penis shaft and now a red bump has formed, it doesn't hurt but is very visible. How can I treat it?
May just wait...: The red bump may be still the healing scarring effect after pulling that hair out, which could be related with its corresponding sebaceous gland. If not hurting and not changing in its size, may just watch and see. Of course, it is hard to give right diagnosis for right care without a direct look at & feel on it. If still in doubt, seek evaluation and counseling timely as needed. ...Read more

First of all before answering your question, I need to emphasize the importance of using condoms every time you have a sexual encounter (genital, oral, and anal) with anyone. You must protect yourself from std's which can be very dangerous and harmful to your health.
Now back to your question, you could be dealing with a sore secondary to a syphilis infection, or less likely warts, or herpes. It's very difficult to say with the information you gave and without seeing it. You are also at a high risk for gonorrhea and chlamydia.
If its not an std it could be a pimple or a small abscess. Regardless you need to be seen by a doctor right away. Your local health department should be able to give you a list of clinics that screen for std's. You can be anonymous if you need to, and they are usually free. Please have this checked out as soon as possible. ...Read more
