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

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
