Good luck. ...Read more

I have a small patch of bumpy skin on my face. The bumps are not red, nor do they itch or hurt. Is this just dry skin? Or maybe acne?

Facial lesions: Bumps on the face could be multiple things. Acne will turn red eventually. Eczema (associated with dry skin) can result in bumps that may or may not itch. A fungal infection would gradually spread and may not itch. If the bumps have a small central pit it could be a benign infection called Molluscum that resolves over time. Using steroids like hydrocortisone will worsen a fungal infection. ...Read more

I had a rash show up on my penis it started out as small bumps but they popped and now the head of my penis has really dry skin it peels and its not itchy or anything

A: A rash on your penis definitely warrants medical investigation, meaning a trip to your doctor. You could be dealing with something as simple as an allergic reaction/dermatitis or something more worrisome like an std. Regardless I can't make a good guess without seeing the area in question. Also you may need testing depending on your doctor's diagnosis.
Best of luck. ...Read more
