Bothering you?: Such skin change is not curable but manageable if symptomatic. Nonetheless, without a detailed history about its onset, duration, degree, progress, evolution, and sequence of events of all symptoms + a direct look at, it is hard to offer accurate diagnosis and advice. So, with these in mind, seek evaluation. Read more

Can anybody give me advice about lump under skin right below penis head?

If so, leave them alone; if still in doubt, seek evaluation and counseling for definite answer timely. Read more

Do you think my skin under my penis head is swollen because I bandaged it up because of sores from folliculitis on my head? Two days ago it was fine

Do you think my skin under my penis head is swollen because I bandaged it up because of sores from folliculitis on my head? Two days ago it was fine

Infected?: You shouldn't get folliculitis on the head of your penis. Folliculitis is an infection of hair follicles and there are no hair follicles there. So the sores you had there, and now the swelling that is spreading down the shaft makes me concerned that you might have an infection. Suggest you see your doctor as soon as possible. Read more

The skin on my penis head is swollen... What is this please? Can I take amoxicillin 500mg for this. Thanks

The skin on my penis head is swollen... What is this please? Can I take amoxicillin 500mg for this. Thanks

Infection? STD?: It's not possible to judge the cause based only on this description. Maybe an STD if at risk. If an infection of any kind, amoxicillin probably is NOT the best antibiotic. Do not try to treat it yourself with amoxicillin or anything else, and do not rely on a pharmacist's advice (common in some countries, although I don't know about the Philippines. Get professional health care. Good luck! Read more

Get seen, Brian: Enjoying your body won't change the distribution of skin. This may be a remnant of your foreskin if you're circumcised, or a short foreskin if you're not; it may be a common wart or you may have one or more pearly papules if it's around your corona. Get with your physician to review some of the basics about your body, now that you're a grown man. Best wishes. Read more
