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?

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

Hi I have itching & burning on penis shaft with some redness for 1 week. Came after intense day of working out. Base of shaft has white bumps.

Your question: Suggests this is "chafing" due to rubbing while exercising. In that case a OTC CORTISONE Cream should help!


Hope this is helpful!

I have a tiny (~1mm) bump on my penis shaft ~1/4 of the way up. I'm uncircumsized no sex for about 2 yrs. No itch pain or redness. Could it be cancer?

I have a tiny (~1mm) bump on my penis shaft ~1/4 of the way up. I'm uncircumsized no sex for about 2 yrs. No itch pain or redness. Could it be cancer?

Penile cancer is: Rare, especially at your age. It will usually be demonstratted underneath the foreskin at the glans of the penis; I can say with confidence it is not cancer. There are other things it could be but that is very low probability. ...Read more

First: 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

Not an STD: If you don't have risk factor for std's, it is not std's so don't worry much. Skin lesions need to be looked at to know what it is. Also, we need to know many things that might associate with the lesions like how long it has been there, or associate pain... The best way is to come see your physician. ...Read more

I have a pea sized red bump on the underside of my penis near the base of the shaft. It's now leaking puss and has a yellow tip at the center. Herpes?

I have a pea sized red bump on the underside of my penis near the base of the shaft. It's now leaking puss and has a yellow tip at the center. Herpes?

Doubt herpes: Herpes doesn't behave like this - it doesn't cause a "red bump" that would "leak pus". This sounds like a pimple or infected skin cyst. See a doctor to be safe, but I don't think you need to be worried about herpes or any other STD. Good luck. ...Read more

I had a red bump, looked like a red pimple, where the shaft of my penis meets the pubis area for ~ a month. Today it was puss-filled, ingrown hair?

Good possibility: Inflamed or infected hair follicles in that region not uncommon and usually resolve on their own with good hygiene, warm compresses, and elimination of any undergarments that may be irritating that area. If persists, worsens, or accompanied by other lesions, recommend evaluation. ...Read more
