Are bumps on the head of penis stds?

Are bumps on the head of penis stds?

Pearly papules?: One man in 100 is the lucky owner of "pearly penile papules", a row of bumps along the corona on the back of the gland / head. Check internet photos and see if this is you. If your life-partner doesn't like them, you can have them lasered off. Or you may decide they're cool. They are not a sexually transmitted disease or a cancer risk. ...Read more

This is a disease which can be transmitted from one person to another person through sexually related activities. This does not limit these activities to heterosexual intercourse, but encompasses all modalities of human-to-human sexual activity. It does not include illnesses that may make an individual more susceptible to a condition because of a sexual ...Read more

 i've had these tiny white(smaller than bumps)but bumps on the head of my penis & also my shaft, i've taken std tests negative, the bumps come & go?

Not STD. Miliaria?: This doesn't sound like any STD. I would wonder about miliaria crystallina (heat rash w/ temporarily blocked sweat pores) (google it for more info). The large majority of genital skin problems are not STDs. (There is a color atlas of genital dermatology. Of 290 pages, only 15 are about STDs.) If you remain concerned, see a doctor, preferably a dermatologist. ...Read more

I tested negative for STDs and herpes. Could my boyfriend still have it? He has few hard white bumps on his shaft and several bumps on the penis head.

I tested negative for STDs and herpes. Could my boyfriend still have it? He has few hard white bumps on his shaft and several bumps on the penis head.

Possibly: If he has not been tested, he should be tested also. There is a small possiblity if a false negative or that he has an infection that you have not picked up yet. As far as the white bumps, they may be normal. However, he should be evaluated to be sure. ...Read more

There is a part of my penis head that is white. It doesn't hurt, itch and no bumps. Could this be a STD? Or vitiligo, are there such thing?

There is a part of my penis head that is white. It doesn't hurt, itch and no bumps. Could this be a STD? Or vitiligo, are there such thing?

Here are some ...: If the whitish patch on glans penis has been lifelong or as long as remembered, it could be just vitiligo of unknown causes, and has no known effective Rx. So, it would be better to leave it alone. If more in doubt, see Doc timely. Best wish... ...Read more

Is red dot on head of penis an STD or hiv? Painless

Is red dot on head of penis an STD or hiv? Painless

Here are some ...: Watch it or them for 1-2 months; if being there as long a you could have remembered without a change in number, it/they could be benign so no need to concern; if changing in number along with size, have Doc take a look for sure. But, clinically, having red dot(s) on foreskin is usually related with local hygiene, so keep foreskin/glans penis cleaning & drying regularly. More doubt? See Doc timely. ...Read more

What's cause penis head skin to peal off after having sex last night. Both of us don't have any STD's.

What's cause penis head skin to peal off after having sex last night. Both of us don't have any STD's.

Probably not serious: I agree no STD is a likely cause of something like this. I would guess some sort of dermatitis, chemical irritation, allergy (e.g. to latex of condom or a vaginal perfume etc), or maybe a superficial infection like yeast. It doesn't sound serious, but see a doctor if it recurs or continues, or if you or your partner has any pain, redness, sores or itching. Otherwise I wouldn't worry about it, ...Read more

I have a rash on the head of my penis. No pain. No skin raised. Just kinda there. I'm curious to what this is because I'm frightened it's an STD?

Probably not STD: No STD is a likely cause of a rash like this. There are many causes of genital skin problems. Most are not due to STD, and your description is not suggestive of any STD. See a doctor, preferably a dermatologist. But probably it's nothing serious. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a small red spot (1-2mm) near the head of my penis that is painless. Redness seems to vary time to time. Is this a possible symptom of STD?

No way to know: Without being able to visualize this and obtain further history any comment would be nothing but a guess. You need to show this to a doctor and be diagnosed and treated appropriately. ...Read more

If I have 1 molluscum contagiosum bump on the head of my penis which i got from using a public washroom when i was 14... Does that mean I have a std?

Let's ask...: It would be surprising for a lone molluscum "dimple wart" to stay around for four years unchanged, and it's difficult to get this in a public washroom. Are you quite sure you do not have a single pearly papule on the corona of your penis? Let me suggest you show a few other physicians. Molluscum is not considered a std; a pearly papule can be lasered off. ...Read more
