Warts: You could have penile warts (especially if they are increasing in number). This is a sexually transmitted disease and you could give these to your sexual partner. This condition should be diagnosed by a doctor who can also treat the problem.

Possible fungal inf: The most common cause of groin itch is the fungal infection similar to athletes foot. There are many products in the pharmacy (over the counter, no prescription needed) which can be very useful. Try tinactin (tolnaftate) cream. But there are numerous products, powders, sprays, ointments and creams. My preference is for creams made for athlet' foot. If you donot improve in 1 week, please see a dermatologist.

The: The best way to get a correct diagnosis for the lesions on your penis is to have them examined by your doctor.

Nothing can replace a physical examination. Good luck.

Penis bumps: Penis bumps can be many things. Some STDs, some not. Only general advice can be given without a photo or physical exam. Top 2 photos are non-STDs: Fordyce spots (sebum which can be extricated by M.D. or left alone), Infected hair follicle (plucked and kept clean). Bottom 2 photos are STDs (HPV and Molluscum) to be evaluated by your MD so s/he can rule out other STDs and council you for prevention.

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are hard to describe and hard to visualize in words. Rashes of bumps above the the penis may be warts, molluscum (viral), blackheads (comedones), or be folliculitis, which is an infection in the little hair follicles in the skin. Rashes that itch a lot may be allergic reactions and/or skin infections. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate to help decide on a diagnosis.

Penile Lesions: See your dermatologist for a diagnosis. Unless the lesions are seen, it is very difficult to make a diagnosis. The bumps could be a virus called molluscum contagiosum. The bumps could be warts. The bumps could be cysts. The bumps could be hair follicles. The lesions need to be seen to have a diagnosis.

Bumps on the penis: The most common sexually transmitted disease is condyloma, which presents as flesh-colored or tan-brown bumps. These bumps can be anywhere on the penis, the scrotum, or in the pubic area. There are several other causes of bumps on the penis, including lichen planus, that are not contagious. An evaluation by a dermatologist is recommended.

Doctor can evaluate: For bumps on the penis, a primary care doctor, a urologist, or a dermatologist can evaluate to see what they might be. Bumps can be trapped skin cells, trapped oily secretions, normal features, warts from hpv, etc... A close examination should be able to tell if there is a problem or not. Sometimes, a visit to more than one doctor is needed.

Papules: Sounds like benign pearly penile papules, but these kind of questions are obviously tough for us to answer with certainty without examining you. Such papules are quite common and nothing about which you should be concerned.

Go to the doctor: This is a group of symptoms that do not predict just one problem. I think you need to be seen in person by your family physician.
