Yeast infection?: Your symptoms suggest yeast infection, especially if uncircumcised and the "white spots" are under the foreskin. Vaginal itching or discharge also would fit with yeast. STDs are possible if your relationship is new and/or either of you has had other partners in the past few months. If so, both should see a doctor or clinic. If not, you could both try an OTC yeast cream, but see doc if no response. ...Read more

Had sex-Balanitis on penis head, non painful white spots on tonsils won't go away, red spots look like molluscum base of penis. 3.5 weeks total. HIV?

Had sex-Balanitis on penis head, non painful white spots on tonsils won't go away, red spots look like molluscum base of penis. 3.5 weeks total. HIV?

Get examined: None of this suggests any STD, unless you have molluscum contagiosum. If you do, maybe from some other exposure; 3.5 weeks probably is too soon. The chance of HIV is low and your symptoms don't suggest it. But since you're worried, and have possible MC, you need to see a doctor or clinic for personal exam and STD/HIV testing. You'll never get final answers online or by self testing. Good luck. ...Read more

Here are some...: Without a look at them & detailed history, it is hard to give right Dx for right Rx, care, & counseling although clinically the likelihoods of hyperactive sebaceous glands, fungal skin infection, psoriasis, or eczema need to be considered. For the time being, applying anti fungal with steroid cream is worthwhile to try gingerly as instructed. If not improved as expected in 3-5 days, see evaluation ...Read more

I have two brown spots on the head of my penis. I had it sence I was likttle and there is a little whit dot bump on it to, I also masterbate alot.

I have two brown spots on the head of my penis. I had it sence I was likttle and there is a little whit dot bump on it to, I also masterbate alot.

It: It is unlikely that the brown spots you are describing have anything to do with frequent masturbation. If they have been present since you were a child, the odds of it being something serious are very slim. The spots may represent common skin moles, or even skin follicles. If you are concerned I suggest you bring this matter to the attention of your doctor.
Good luck. ...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

Both get checked: Some people are sensitive to resident bacteria or fungal infections their partner may be harboring. Not the same as a sexually transmitted disease, intermittent superficial irritations sometimes indicates a yeast infection.
