I have small red sores on my glans. Uncircumcised, they do not itch, hurt or look infected. Could it be from masturbation? Or over washing of penis?

Here are some...: To attest if what you saw on glans penis is related with masturbation, stop it for 1-2 wks and see to examine the sequence of events. In general, a young of 17 should have healthy tender skin without obsessive cleansing-even for uncircumcised foreskin. So, seek evaluation & counseling.

Tip of penis discomfort. Some redness and itching. No sores. Has been ongoing 2 months. Herpes?

Not likely herpes: Hello : a herpes infection is unlikely to last 2 months. We would have to look at other causes of this problem. psoriasis, contact dermatitis from soaps, and lubricants used during sexual activity. A rash on the scalp. For example, or the knees and elbows would make this more likely psoriasis. The causes of a rash in this area of the body are usually complex and require patience.

Get checked...: My suggestion is to get seen and examined by your doctor. It is difficult through this platform to figure what it definitely is. However, based on the history of oral sex prior to the rash it could very well be herpes infection. Another possibility is a fungal infection. In any case, get checked for a final diagnosis and treatment.

My take is. ..: Clinically, such change in glans penis is usually related long for skin. But, without a direct look at it, no one can give a correct answer.

Likely Viral: It is common for children to have viral causes of mouth sores. We are seeing this in Kentucky now. There are several viruses we see including "hand-foot-mouth" disease that causes mouth sores in children. They are all self limited and require only fluids and comfort measures. Small sips work best. Remember children on average get 8 to 10 viruses a year at her age!

Can you have: Someone check you for lice? That would be my first concern. After that, you have to think dermatitis of some kind (Huge work up will require doctor visit). The nits are easier to spot than the bugs especially in dark hair and they are usually close to the scalp. You should invest in the combing gel because the glue they use to secure the nits is like concrete.
