Penis bumps: Penis bumps can be many things. Some STDs, some not. Only general advice can be given without a photo or physical exam.

Used same razor for genital region as someone who gets cold sores. 1 week after have one small red painful bump near scrotum/shaft of penis. Herpes?

It certainly would: Be possible. Of course there are other potential reasons for the sore but without being able to examine you this cannot be confirmed. If you are very concerned about this make an appointment with a health care professional for an examination. Sharing sharp personal hygiene appliances is never a good idea. ...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

16 and haven't had sex. I have this red, hard bump on the shaft of my penis and it hurts when I squeeze it. What could it be?

16 and haven't had sex. I have this red, hard bump on the shaft of my penis and it hurts when I squeeze it. What could it be?

Here are some. ..: Without further information, it's hard to offer accurate guess, but what described may represent the occurrence of an infected sebaceous cyst on a penis of light-colored skin so it appears as a hurting and red a bump. But squeezing itself may induce pain as well. To verify its truth, seek pro-evaluation with detailed Hx + physicals timely. Best wisher. .. ...Read more

Painless red rash / small bumps on head / top of shaft of penis after sex. Will last for a week and go if I don't have sex again / stay if I do.

Lichen planus: You are describing koebner phenomenon where trauma is the inducer in people prone to have the condition. The most likely diagnosis is lichen planus but psoriasis is a possibility. So rather than becoming celibate, I recommend applying otc Hydrocortisone ointment several hours before and several hours after intercourse and see if that helps. ...Read more

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

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

Two small hard bump on shaft of penis since last week, still there. I had softer bumps at exact same place before but went away in a day. What to do?

Two small hard bump on shaft of penis since last week, still there. I had softer bumps at exact same place before but went away in a day. What to do?

More info needed: It's difficult to judge potential causes from this description. If the "bumps" are superficial, genital warts might be the best bet; or just skin tags. If they seem to be coming up from deeper in the skin, maybe just skin cysts or pimples. Only way to know for sure is to see a doctor or clinic. If there is a national health genitourinary medicine clinic near you, that would be a good choice. ...Read more
