Found a small sore Near the head of penis, after it dissapeared had some rashes near anal region. Is this symptom of syphyllis Will I know if it is?

It may be, need test: It could be syphilis- a painless ulcer, then a rash which could be anal warts. Or another STD. If you had unprotected sex, get tested for all STD's (but it can take 8 weeks from the time of the sore for the syphilis test to be positive) and an exam. They may treat you without waiting for the results, especially if your partner was male. Also get tested for HIV- everyone should know their status. ...Read more

Hi there, Just last week I has some small red circular areas break out on the head of my penis. The are not itchy or sore in any way they. Need Help.

Here are some. ..: Without a direct look after detailed Hx, it's hard to come up a right Dx. However, clinically, such skin change is highly likely related with poor hygiene with long foreskin, and sexual intercourse. A combo of Hx stressing the features & sequence of events over time + physical exam + tests (rarely needed for such) will bring about a right diagnosis for reasonable Rx/ care/ counseling.

I have a small white raised spot on the head of my penis. Its not itchy or sore. What coukd it be?

A wart?: Particularly if you mean the skin tone referred to as "white, " but may be even if looking like snow-white. No pain/itch can go with that as well. Should get it checked in case you are at risk of sharing it, or if anything else may have been shared with you! (be safe, use condoms!). ...Read more

Here are some. ..: Without further detail of the affected area and medical background, it's hard to offer an accurate assessment. At least, these sploches seem benign, non-urgent, and non- progressive. But for long term care, it's reasonable to get pro-evaluation and counseling so to decide if they're long-foreskin-related or not. If so, circumcision may be required. So, see urologist timely. ...Read more

I have small cuts under my penis head. I'm uncircumcised and my skin gets red sore when pulling back foreskin. Usually after sex my wife is sore too?

Uncirc Problem: Patients who are not circumcised may develop balanoposthitis, a long word meaning inflammation or infection of the foreskin and/or head of the penis. When cuts develop, it is usually because the foreskin is too tight or there is chronic inflammation. Keeping the penis dry is essential to recovery. If the problem persists, patients need to see a urologist to treat the underlying cause. ...Read more

I saw a small dark spot on my penis, when I touched it, the skin got removed and a sore appeared. No burning or pain. I had a similar thing 2 y ago.

Here are some...: Without a direct look at, it's hard to offer right Dx & Rx. But based on your age, what described, and the commonality of penile lesion, this dark spot may represent the appearance of sebaceous gland-related blackhead, which poses no clinical significance as long as no obvious infection incurs. So, seek evaluation at the peak of such occurrence for confirmation & counseling. ...Read more

I have a small sore, which looks like an infected ingrown hair about 2 inches above my penis which has a larger bump under it very sore, hurts to bend?

Folliculitis: Sounds like it could indeed be an 'ingrown' hair or a localized folliculitis. Important other information could be obtained with further questioning - esp. Regarding any recent sexual activity, as STDs would also be on the list if you've had sex with any new partner (s). Hopefully it has resolved by now - but if not, I would apply bacitracin. The docs on Health Tap can help if u have more info... ...Read more

I'm felling soreness on my penis, no pain while urination, no abnormal color, just pain near head of penis. Had it before and went away, what is it?

Various causes: Recurrent soreness in the tip of the penis with no pain on urination can result from several conditions, among them are:

If in doubt, go to see the expert for general and specific concern you may have.

Difficult to say: Unfortunately there are multiple causes for painful lesion on the genitals.

Tricky not seeing it: 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.

Non-std skin conditions (boils, cuts, skin tears) can occur.

Std's can occur long after sex. Syphillis would generally be sooner and it is rare
Herpes can occur at any time and it is common ...Read more

Penis head is burning/tingling for past 72 hours. If herpes how long before sore appears? 13 days since unprotected blowjob.

Penis head is burning/tingling for past 72 hours. If herpes how long before sore appears? 13 days since unprotected blowjob.

Not herpes: If this were herpes, blisters and then open sores would appear within 3-5 days, and would always occur before burning or tingling, not afterward. At 13 days, you can be sure herpes isn't the cause. I doubt this is any STD at all. See a doctor if symptoms continue and/or you remain concerned. Good luck! ...Read more
