I'm nervous I have herpes, or multiple STDs. Symptoms: pain in head of penis, leg tingling, small red bump on penis.

See your doctor: The only way to know for sure is to be examined and tested for STDs. You should do this as soon as possible and refrain from intercourse until you know for sure and any infections have been treated. Good luck.

I have a small red bump on the head of my penis, closer to the tip. It is slightly sensitive but I wouldn't describe it as pain. What could this be?

I have a small red bump on the head of my penis, closer to the tip. It is slightly sensitive but I wouldn't describe it as pain. What could this be?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. What you described is consistent with herpes. If you are sexually active you may wish to see a doctor for an evaluation and tests for sexually transmitted diseases. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex.

Tricky: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person. Pimples are pretty common. Irritation without anything wrong at the area where urine comes out are two (of several) minor problems that are not STD's. Warts, Herpes are std's that can look like a red bump.

Inflammed bump: The red bump could signify a small cyst and in of and itself is not problematic. However, if it gets bigger or more painful then have it evaluated by a Dermatologist who may need to treat it.

Here are some...: Without more detailed Hx and a direct look, it's hard to offer accurate Dx although long foreskin-related causes are likely; if so, circumcision is good care. But, to sort things out correctly is not that difficult if following instructions in http://formefirst.

Lesions: If you have ever been sexually active with a partner, this could represent an std like herpes. If you are not it could be a friction abrasion or possibly a yeast infection. Chemical irritation (detergent or another irritant).

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.

I masturbated more than once in one sitting with no lubricant and I don't have foreskin and now I have a red bump on the head of my penis. Treatment?

Here are some. ..: Based on what you described, it's reasonable to leave your penis alone but keeping it clean and dry without further physical stimulation for at least 5-7 days so to let the Nature heal what you incurred to your penis as long as getting better day by day. If not, seek pro-evaluation & counseling timely.

Dermatitis: Without and major history of recent sex, etc., it may be a simple contact or irritant dermatitis. Rashes are difficult if not impossible to truly diagnose over the computer, so to get a definitive diagnosis, get the area evaluated so the right diagnosis can be made and then the best treatment can occur for you. Best wishes.

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.
