Molluscum: Many diagnoses can produce bumps (called "papules") and all of these are possibilities. You Ned to see a dermatologist, and also a possible visit to a urologist. Without being able to see the lesions, you have omitted the principal advantage a dermatologist has over non dermatologists. I would suggest a visit to a dermatologist a sap. ...Read more

Suffering from dry flaky skin on the penis. Used my wife's monistat 4 wks ago due to itchy bumps cause she had a yeast infec. What is wrong with me?

Dermatitis?: This might just be healing of your apparent penile yeast infection. Or some other dermatitis. It doesn't sound serious, and no STD would do this. Beyon that, there's no way to judge the cause in any more detail. Get professionally evaluated if it continues and/or you remain concerned. ...Read more

May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor. ...Read more

I have red itchy bumps on my penis and more keep showing up. My doctor gave me a cream for mite bites and I applied it, but the bumps are not going away. What should I do?

I have red itchy bumps on my penis and more keep showing up. My doctor gave me a cream for mite bites and I applied it, but the bumps are not going away. What should I do?

Something else: Mites bites or more likely scabies would not likely be restricted to the penis alone. Sometimes a yeast infection may produce itching especially if you are uncircumcised. Be sure to check if your female partner may have a yeast infection and therefore infecting you. If you use a condom, be sure that you are not allergic to latex or rubber. ...Read more

I have red itchy bumps on my pubic area im real worried but they don't seem to be an STD they look more like boils and there on my penis I just started using antibiotic cream and they dry out what should I do

I have red itchy bumps on my pubic area im real worried but they don't seem to be an STD they look more like boils and there on my penis I just started using antibiotic cream and they dry out what should I do

It: It sounds like they are responding to the antibiotic cream, however that may not be enough. You are likely dealing with abscesses or boils. Did you recently shave? This is a common precursor to infection. Please visit your doctor because std'd still need to be ruled out. If it is bacterial your doctor may put you on oral antibiotics. It is always best to have a doctor examine you in these types of instances.
Good luck. ...Read more

Small itchy bumps on my knuckle?

Itchy bumps: Small bumps can occur on the skin for a variety of reasons, but when they are "ichy" it is usually an indication that they are a "reaction" to something - an "allergy".
